Invalid Page Fault in Media Player Casslic

May 6, 2010 at 07:31:05
Specs: Windows 98, 120.0MB RAM
(Please pardon the typographical error of "classic" in the title)

Sometimes I get the following error message in Media Player Classic 6.4.9.1 when I want to play another music file:

MPLAYERC caused an invalid page fault in
module MPLAYERC.EXE at 015f:004aa891.

The program closes as a result every time.

You are mistaken? Your program is not shutting down due to opening a file but rather running into a streaming method not compatible with your older player. You must upgrade or utilize a different method to get at the file you want to "play".

I had a similar experiance just recently when I wanted to preview some CDs for sale at Amazon and my 6.4 player failed with the same symptom or "Class not registered" error resulting in closure also. I instead used the Amazon Java player on that same page to play the samples which I then picked out from the TIF folder as true MP3 files which my 6.4 player has no troubles with. I'm not sure ANY player could play those files.

I am not mistaken, as I was clicking open (after "Quick Open File") and before the music could play the error message came up and the program shut down. I never wrote it was the fault of the files.

Today, I played some music files in Media Player Classic and I never got the error message. The changes I made since my previous message included moving the main folder for Mplayerc.exe from an unzipped file folder to the Program Files folder in Drive C and leaving check marks beside DVD file extensions under formats.

If your problem is solved, then congratulations.

If not, you may want to try VLC Media Player. This player is good for playing DVD type files. I recommended this in a post a couple weeks ago. It will run all the way back to Windows 95 (which by the way I still use and am typing this reply with on my T1 line at home LOL).

The problem has not been solved, even after downloading Media Player Classic 6.4.9.1 (revision 82). I downloaded VLC Media Player, but it doesn't play all Real Audio files and video from one of my DVDs did not play as smooth as video played in Media Player Classic.

I also have VLC and it doesn't play Real Player files (even on XP).

The only thing I know that will "stream" RealPlayer files is Real Player itself. Not one I like but its intrusive issues can be tamed.

RealPlayer Alternative (which uses Media Player Classic) will play offline saves of RealPlayer files.

You are likely to need old versions of either of the above to play on W98.


What's the time?

Here's a start:

Real Legacy Software Archive - Real.com (opens in a new window)

Also note that even though the page shows the players support "Windows NT4.0 / 98 /ME / XP / 2000 " Real Player 8 is the last version to run on Windows 95 so it is likely to have low system requirements. Version 8 might be a good choice considering your RAM. What is your processor?

You could also try

1) installing KernelEX compatibility layer for Windows 98 (opens in a new window),

2) download Real Player SP Gold v 1.1 here, then right-mouse click on the installer, change compatibility mode to either Windows 2000 or Windows XP, and see if it installs. No guarantees, and I'd doubt whether RPSP would run on a machine with 128MB RAM. I don't have a 98 machine on hand to test at the moment.

I installed KernelEX and the latest version of Media Player Classic, but the same error still appears. After I installed the latest version of Real Alternative, an error message came immediately after installation and whenever I closed the configuration window, so I returned to Real Alternative 1.52, which has none of these problems on my computer and doesn't cause audio files to stop playing so soon.

My computer's processor is a Pentium(r) II, but I want to continue using Media Player Classic since the error appears to be a small issue that can be resolved.

I might have lost your drift a bit about the current situation.
From what I recall Real Player Alternative does use Media Player Classic
so it would seem you are OK now (apart from streaming).

I understand the connection between Real Alternative and Media Player Classic all ready. My current situation involves this error message appearing after I click open to play another audio file sometimes (usually after the last file has finished playing):

MPLAYERC caused an invalid page fault in
module MPLAYERC.exe at 015f:004aa891.

Media Player Classic closes every time because of this.

What threw me was this (referring to error messages):
"so I returned to Real Alternative 1.52, which has none of these problems".
Anyhow, I've got it now and am at a bit of a loss on this issue.

Usually invalid page faults are due to a problem with the file version of the second file mentioned (mplayerc.exe in this case) which makes little sense in this instance. Maybe a different version of MPC would help, if available.

Another possibility is to uninstall RPA 1.52 and MPC, then delete any RPC or MPC file which are left behind. Next run a registry cleaner (such as the one in CCleaner) to ensure all associated entries have also been removed. You could also do a manual registry serch. A clean install of RPA 1.52 might then work.

Otherwise I'm stumped so maybe someone else will have some ideas.

I was referring to different issues after installing the latest version of Real Alternative and I comparing that version with Real Alternative 1.52. I'll be back after following the suggestions above.

The problem was solved after uninstalling Real Alternative and deleting everything related to Media Player Classic before downloading Real Alternative 2.02 (with Media Player Classic 6.4.9.1, revision 107) from Free-Codecs.com. There was no error message ("this program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down") after leaving the configuration window or after playing some complete audio. I also solved the audio problem (with the audio muting shortly after playing) by selecting “Use DirectSound” in the configuration window. Thank you everyone for your suggestions.

Glad to hear you fixed it and with a later version of RPA too.
Thx for popping back to let us know.
