WMP - "Network is too busy to play file at original quality"
Posted 06 September 2010 - 01:25 AM
When I play a video on my Win 7 PC, an icon appears under the mouse point in bottom left hand corner of the WMP (version 12) window, together with the text "Network is too busy to play file at original quality". Can anyone explain what this means, or why it might appear? What "Network" is being referred to - I'm playing a file stored on the local disk!

never seen this myself, but suggest you open WMP, go to tools, select options, then click on the performance tab and make sure the defaults are ticked.
You dont mention if there is any perceptable video quality issues with your current play back issue.
Is there a problem apart from the message reporting one?

that all sounds good (same as my configuration)
I'm sorry but I cant think of any other explanation as to why you would get this message other than:
Are you somehow maxing out your PCIe bandwidth? What slot is the video card in? is it an x16 slot?

ATI Radeon HD 5700 series
and from it's Properties, "Location" is:
PCI bus 3, device 0, function 0

Check your MB manual to make sure there is a differnece in how each slot performs before doing anything.
