FIX: Error loading player: No playable sources found

Error loading player

The Error loading player: No playable sources found message signals a problem that happened while an online video was loading on your browser.

Shortly, when this error message is displayed you cannot stream online videos and that’s a bummer.

However, we are not talking about a major issue, but about a minor bug which can be now easily addressed with the help of the troubleshooting methods that are explained in this tutorial.

Как обновить BIOS и для чего это делать

No bios file found что делать?

Простым языком BIOS — это микропрограмма, с помощью которой компьютер вообще сможет включиться. Она производит инициализацию оборудования и много других интересных штук, но сейчас не об этом. Если вы решили обновить биос вашего ПК, но не знаете, как это можно сделать — сейчас разберемся.

Небольшое лирическое отступление: под BIOS в статье рассмотрим не только и не столько уходящий в прошлое Basic Input Output System, но и современный его заменитель в лице UEFI.

Закономерный вопрос: а для чего вообще необходимо его обновлять? Список можно продолжать долго, но вот некоторые из причин:

  • поддержка новых процессоров;
  • увеличение стабильности работы;
  • улучшение совместимости с другим оборудованием (например, оперативной памятью или PCI-E устройствами);
  • закрытие «дыр» в защитных механизмах ЦПУ (вспомним пресловутые Meltdown и Spectre) или обновление AGESA для процессоров AMD;
  • добавление новых функций или открытие необходимых меню в биос;
  • исправление ошибок.

Некоторые пункты, однако, могу сработать с точностью до наоборот. Из недавнего, например, вспоминается вырезание микрокодов для поддержки ЦПУ «A» серии на материнских платах AM4 или поддержки PCI-e 4.0 там же.

Обычно каждая версия биоса, размещенная на официальном сайте, имеет описание со списком изменений. Не обязательно этот список будет полным и исчерпывающим, но это остается на совести производителя.

Обновление биоса всегда было делом довольно рискованным. Опасно, в первую очередь, отключение питания. Также бывают проблемы с самим файлом обновления. В итоге можно получить неработающий компьютер, который лишь крутит вентиляторами.

Однако, если не затерт Boot block (загрузочный сектор), то у большинства производителей, во всяком случае, у большой четверки — Asus, AsRock, Gigabyte и MSI — точно, есть различные механизмы по восстановлению. Например, у AsRock и Gigabyte могут быть распаяны две микросхемы с биосом — главная и резервная. При неисправности первой плата может запуститься с резервной и провести процедуру восстановлению. А у Asus и MSI на такой случай есть технологии CrashFree BIOS 3 и Flash BIOS Button.

Чтобы понять, есть ли у вашей платы новые версии биоса, нужно определить, какая версия установлена в данный момент. Существует не один способ узнать это, но перечислим лишь самые простые.

В ОС Windows нажимаем комбинацию клавиш Windows+R, появится окно «Выполнить», затем ввести команду «msinfo32» и нажать «OK». Появится окно, где в графе «Версия BIOS» вы можете узнать ее.

Если отбросить встроенные возможности, то данную процедуру можно провести и с помощью различных программ. Например, бесплатной утилитой CPU-Z. Скачиваем программу, запускаем, идем на вкладку «Mainboard», секция «BIOS», пункт «Version». Здесь находится искомая нами информация.

Скачать или хотя бы проверить наличие новой версии биоса можно на официальном сайте компании-производителя вашей материнской платы. Рассмотрим последовательность действий для каждого производителя «большой четверки».

Переходим на сайт. Жмем на значок лупы в правом верхнем углу экрана.

Сверху выходит строка поиска. Вводим туда название своей материнской платы. По мере ввода сайт будет автоматически показывать вам наиболее подходящие варианты. Как только вы увидели искомую модель, нажимайте на нее.

Открывается страница платы. Вверху справа выбираем раздел «Поддержка».

В открывшемся окне сначала выбираем «Драйверы и Утилиты», а затем, чуть ниже, «BIOS и ПО».

Перед нами откроется список доступных для загрузки биосов с кратким описанием изменений.

Asrock

Открываем сайт. Вверху справа в небольшое поле вводим название платы и жмем «Enter» или на значок лупы.

В появившемся окне находим нужную модель и жмем «Скачать».

На появившейся странице листаем чуть вверх и выбираем «BIOS».

Перед нами появится таблица со списком для загрузки.

Asrock предлагает на выбор два варианта биоса в зависимости от того, как вы его будете устанавливать — через BIOS или Windows. Отличаются они лишь наличием во второй версии файлов с программой-прошивальщиком.

Кстати, тут же, в колонке «Обновить БИОС/Как обновить» вы можете найти ссылку на инструкцию по выбранному методу обновления.

Gigabyte

Заходим на официальный сайт. Кликаем на лупу в правом верхнем углу.

В появившейся строке поиска вводим название искомой и жмем «Enter».

В появившейся выдаче находим нужную модель платы и ревизию (приписка в виде Rev. и номера) и нажимаем либо Driver, либо Utility.

Листаем чуть вниз и выбираем подраздел «BIOS».

Здесь находятся все версии доступные для скачивания.

Открываем сайт. Листаем в самый низ и выбираем пункт «Драйверы и Загрузки».

В открывшемся окне, также листаем чуть ниже и выбираем «Загрузки»,

… и «Материнские платы».

Во второй графе ставим «Chipset», в третьей выбираем его, в четвертой нужную плату. Справа появится ее изображение. Нажимаем «Поиск».

Мы сразу оказываемся на странице для скачивания биоса.

Алгоритм у всех производителей практически идентичен. Также можно пойти более долгим путем: зайти в раздел продукты/продукция, выбрать материнские платы, и долго и упорно с помощью фильтров искать свою. Но это занимает гораздо больше времени.

А самый простой и быстрый вариант — это ввести название вашей платы в любимом поисковике. Практически всегда первой или второй строкой будет прямая ссылка на страницу вашей МП.

Сверяйте каждую букву в названии, для материнских плат Gigabyte сверьте также ревизию. Это важно, чтобы не получить после процедуры кирпич за несколько тысяч рублей.

Например, MSI X470 GAMING PLUS MAX и MSI X470 GAMING PLUS, с точки зрения версий биоса, разные платы и биосы у них также разные.

При сегодняшнем положении дел используются два основных (!) варианта для обновления:

  • через BIOS;
  • через Windows.

Но сначала подготовительные мероприятия. Перед прошивкой необходимо распаковать архив, скачанный с сайта, для доступа к файлу обновления. Если у вас произведены какие-либо настройки в биосе, то запишите или запомните их, поскольку после обновления все установки сбросятся на «по умолчанию», а сохраненные профили могут либо стереться, либо не применяться из-за смены версии. И вообще, крайне желательно сделать сброс настроек перед процедурой обновления.

Обновление через встроенный функционал самого биос

Покажем на примере плат Gigabyte Z370 HD3P и MSI X470 GAMING PLUS MAX.

Для входа в биос в большинстве случаев используется клавиша DELETE.

Обновление через специализированную утилиту производителя материнской платы, из операционной системы (семейства Windows)

На примере Gigabyte.

Для обновления из операционной системы у Gigabyte уже долгое время есть довольно простая утилита — @BIOS.

Скачиваем с официального сайта из раздела «Утилиты» (прям под разделом с биосами). Запускаем. На главной странице, среди прочего, мы видим версию уже установленного биос.

На второй вкладке можно произвести обновление из интернета.

Выбираем вкладку «Update from file», жмем «Browse» и выбираем наш скачанный файл.

Здесь в верхнем пункте предлагают запустить «Face wizzard» — утилиту для изменения изображения, появляющегося при загрузке.

Update backup BIOS дает возможность обновить также и резервную микросхему.

Читаем предупреждение и выбираем «Ok».

После сообщения об успешном обновлении потребуется перезагрузить ПК.

Через встроенный механизм, запускаемый с помощью отдельной кнопки

Это более редкий вариант обновления. Такая возможность есть на некоторых платах, но упомянуть ее стоит.

"No Playable Files" error when trying to play audio from iPhone connected via USB

I bought my 2015 Mazda3 in May. Since then, I’ve been using the USB connection with my iPhone happily. (Apple Music, Rdio, Spotify, Overcast, etc). The Bluetooth audio quality has been very poor, so I was happy to use the USB audio.

Yesterday, this just stopped working for me. Whenever I plug in my iPhone 6 via USB to Lightning cable, I get a "No Playable Files" error. I had never seen this before yesterday. I used to see the occasional "Authentication Error" but unplugging and replugging would usually fix it. Now I get "No Playable Files" every time.

I’m not sure what’s different. I haven’t touched anything on the Mazda 3 infotainment system. The most likely candidate is that I’m running iOS 9.1 beta 4 on my iPhone. I thought it had been working fine with this version, but it’s possible I haven’t tested it since upgrading to b4. I know for sure that previous iOS 9.1 betas worked properly.

One important note: I’m running Infotainment version 31.00.100. I’m planning to update to the latest 55.00.753A since I’ve heard the Bluetooth audio quality should be improved (or at least the skips eliminated). I will probably try that after upgrading to 9.1 b5.

Has anyone else encountered this or have any idea how to fix it? I’m going to try updating to 9.1 beta 5 now that it’s out, but I’m really nervous that 9.1 final is going to break USB audio on the iPhone.

Updating to 9.1 beta 5 didn’t fix it, same problem. I also had a significant amount of lint in my Lightning port on my phone, and I had hope that it would resolve the problem, but still exists.

Anyone else have ideas?

Further update. Now I’m getting more nervous.

I updated to 55.00.753A and left it virgin without making any tweaks. My iPhone 6 running iOS 9.1 beta 5 wouldn’t play any music through Lightning cable to USB port, it always says "No Playable Files".

I tried a couple of other Apple devices that I have running different iOS versions.

a) An iPad mini running iOS 7.1.2. It played fine via USB.
b) An iPhone 5 running iOS 8.4. It played fine via USB.
b) An iPad mini 2 running iOS 9.1 beta 1. It actually gave a "No Playable Files" error but did actually play a song. You can see the song info in this screenshot with the error over top. https://www.dropbox.com/s/bmdkva2wsi2c1t1/Screenshot 2015-10-15 22.13.44.png?dl=0

At this point, I am thinking that iOS 9.1 as of Beta 4 has broken compatibility with the Mazda Infotainment system over USB 3. This is going to affect a lot of people. You may want to hold off updating to iOS 9.1 when it comes out.

I’m a registered iOS Developer so I’ll file a bug with them, but there’s a slim chance they do anything about it IMO since they won’t be able to reproduce it without buying a $20k car.

I’ve got the same issue, but with an iPod Classic, so there’s no "music app" — the iPod is the music app. Got my Mazda 3 three months ago, and have been using the iPod via USB mostly successfully since I got it — occasionally I’d get an "Authentication Failure", but unplugging it and plugging it back in usually fixed that. I would always start a playlist before plugging it in, and stick to that playlist, because the Entertainment system couldn’t handle most of my playlists, which tend to have from 500-5000 tracks on them.

Just in the last week, though, I get a "No Playable Files" message every single time I try to use the iPod. The twist is that about 20% of the time it will actually start playing music from the iPod, even as it displays that message. So long as I don’t try to access the iPod again, it will continue to play tracks from the playlist. But if I try to display information about the song it’s playing, it will stop playing, and from then on won’t play anything from the iPod until I restart the car. I’ve tried rebooting the iPod and a different USB cable, but so far no change.

This is incredibly frustrating — I was charged a premium for an audio system that doesn’t sound all that great, plays music when it starts up even if the last thing I did was stop the music, mutes music but continues to play it when it should be pausing it, and now most of the time it won’t actually play the music I’ve selected. The 10-year-old Acura I sold when I bought this car had a better sounding stereo that worked reliably every time, courtesy a cassette adapter.

Partway to fixing the "No Playable Files" issue

I may be just a few steps from solving the "No Playable Files" issue that many are experiencing with both USB flash drives and USB devices such as iPhones. I’m posting this in case there are others here more adept at Linux than I who can help fill in the gaps. I have also posted a question at StackOverflow that may get more Linux users viewing it, so check there if the trail here runs cold:

On an initial hypothesis that mount point naming was the culprit (something I found out is a common problem when "resuming" in Linux, as when the car is turned back on after being turned off), I watched the mount points from the terminal when shutting off/resuming. It was true that sometimes the mount point of a device was changed from, for example, sda1 to sdb, or something similar, and this did correspond with the error message appearing in the GUI. So I created a rule to identify my specific device by make and model, in a file that, on this system, is called /etc/udev/rules.d/99-usbdiscoverer.rules:

To get your product’s vendor and model code, use the terminal and type

This worked and prevented the drive from being renamed on resume. However the GUI error kept occurring, and now I’m finding that when the error occurs, the mount point is still present by name, but is empty (of files). This leads me to suspect it has been logically disconnected. So my next, and presently only other, hypothesis, is the USB core issue described here:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+SarahSharp/posts/RZpndv4BCCD

The symptoms described in that article appear to be exactly the ones occurring behind the scenes when the "No Playable Files" error appears.

I’m not so experienced with Linux. I’ve made the changes to the hub.c file described in that article (essentially changing to a 20ms delay before trying to contact any USB device). I’ve created a Ubuntu installation just for the purpose of re-compiling this. However, I’m running into two problems:

Whenever I try to compile the hub.c file, I get an error that linux/module.h is missing. It is actually not missing — I have downloaded all the headers and sources using apt-get. I’m attempting this from a distro called ubuntu-gnome-16.04-desktop-amd64.

Secondly, even if I could get this to work, the file hub.ko doesn’t exist in the Linux version I’m seeing in the car. The closest path and corresponding set of files I can find are at lib/modules/3.0.35/kernel/drivers/usb, and that directory has three folders containing, respectively:

In a folder called "class" : cdc-acm.ko

In a folder called "gadget" : arcotg_udc.ko, g_audio.ko, g_file_storage.ko, g_ncm.ko, g_serial.ko

In a folder called "serial" : ftdi_sio.ko, pl2303.ko, usbserial.ko

I’m stumped for the moment, so asking for help completing the puzzle. If we could get a patched USB core uploaded into the car, it might solve the "No Playable Files" issue.

"No Playable Files" : Cause identified as EFI partition, solved for USB drives.

My verbose post about the USB core timing issue hypothesis above may be ignored. While pursuing a solution to that, I stumbled on a much simpler issue that was causing the "No Playable Files" error, at least for me:

If you have formatted a USB drive on a Mac even as MS-FAT32, a hidden EFI partition may have been created. This may also occur in some other operating systems. EFI partitions and what they are for may be learned about with a Google search but this is not necessary to know in order to solve the issue.

It appears that after stopping and resuming the car and infotainment system, about 1 time out of 3, the EFI partition was mounting in place of the main FAT32 partition that contained the playable files. The solution is to format the USB drive without an EFI partition, making sure the drive is just one large "basic data" FAT32 partition. If you are running a Mac OS, you will not be able to see if an EFI partition is present without installing debug tools in the disk utility or knowing how to access it from the command line. To avoid having an EFI partition created on Mac in the first place, the key is to format as Master Boot Record ("MBR"), not GUID Partition Map. See the attached screenshot. Or format directly from a PC or Linux OS.

This may not be the only issue that causes the "No Playable Files" error, but my guess is that it will solve most people’s complaints regarding USB drives.

Regarding iPhones and other phones and devices, I would guess a similar issue is at work. Since those devices run their own operating systems, a solution may be harder to find.

OK, so now I am getting this message out of the blue.

I have a 2015 Mazda 3 hatch, and I’ve been running 55.00.753 NA N for at least a year. I have an iPod Touch that is connected via USB that I leave in the center console, and it has also been unchanged for well over a year. When I park the Mazda in the garage, I have the iPod sync to my Mac’s iTunes over Wifi. It’s nice, I’m able to sync new tunes but I don’t have to physically touch anything, and I haven’t for at least 6 months.

Several days ago, out of the blue, while playing music off the iPad, I started getting the "No playable files" message. while the iPod was playing a file. It will continue to play track after track, but if you hit OK, or if you switch to the Nav screen and switch back, suddenly the iPod will stop playing and it will revert to FM radio. It’s like those old Warner Brothers cartoons where Wile E Coyote has run off the edge of a cliff but gravity doesn’t take effect until he actually looks down. The iPod will continue playing these ‘unplayable’ files until you do something on the screen and them it craps out.

I’ve endured so many stupid bugs with this infotainment system but this latest one is truly aggravating. I clearly have playable files on my iPod, but I don’t know what to try next to remedy the situation.

Thanks for this info! Been preparing for a camping/ road trip down to the redwoods. Spent hours accumulating/ organizing new music, repairing tags, etc. only to receive that ‘No Playable Files’ message, after inserting my flash drive. Delayed my trip one day attempting to solve the problem, there is no way I’m driving hours upon hours without any of my music.

Tried your formatting suggestions on my imac, and I can listen to my music again. Now, I have about 15 GB worth of music to choose from (around 1800 songs).

Tags not 100 percent perfect, I can deal with that upon return. Also, an image of Neil Young pops up whenever I play his songs, instead of the artwork I added to his greatest hits CD. Might try disabling Gracenote next, and see if that helps at all.

No, It’s Not Malware. Next!

Now that you have made sure it’s not due to any sort of virus, another possibility could be a bad link. A common occurrence on these video link websites is to have a multitude of links all beside one another…and then you’re left to decide which one is the one that will take you to the video. It’s not always easy to guess correctly, and this time you might have accidentally clicked on the wrong link which caused you to face this error. If that’s the case, you have two options:

  1. Click other links on the page that look like they’re correct to see if they’ll take you to the real video; or.
  2. Give up and go to another site.

Fix: Error loading player ‘no playable sources found’

If you try to play a video or audio file directly from a webpage while browsing the internet on an internet browser and your browser is, for some reason, unable to successfully play the file, you are going to see an error message that reads:

“Error loading player: No playable sources found”

This behavior is especially observed when the video or audio file the affected user tried to play before they ran into the error message utilized Adobe’s Flash Player in some capacity. Not being able to stream some or all audio and video files through your internet browser can be quite the pickle. Thankfully, though, all is not lost – there’s a lot you can do on your own to try and get rid of this error message and get the audio or video file to play successfully. The following are some of the absolute most effective solutions that you can use to try and fix this issue:

Solution 1: Reinstall Adobe Flash Player

If there’s something wrong with the instance of Adobe Flash Player you have installed on your computer, there’s a chance you can resolve the problem by simply uninstalling and then reinstalling Adobe Flash Player. To uninstall and then reinstall Adobe Flash Player on your computer, you need to:

  1. Click here to download the uninstaller for Adobe Flash Player.
  2. Download and run the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller, and go through the onscreen instructions to uninstall Adobe Flash Player.
  3. Once Adobe Flash Player has been successfully uninstalled, click here, click on Install now and go through the installation process for Adobe Flash Player.
  4. When Adobe Flash Player has been successfully installed, restart your computer.
  5. Wait for your computer to boot up and check to see whether or not the problem has been resolved.

Solution 2: Update your internet browser

Using an outdated version of your internet browser can also lead to you seeing the “Error loading player: No playable sources found” error message while trying to stream audio or video through your internet browser. If that’s the case, updating your browser to the latest available version should be enough to get the job done. Checking for updates for your internet browser is pretty easy – for example, if you’re using Google Chrome all you need to do is:

  1. Open Google Chrome.
  2. Click on the Menu button represented by three vertically aligned dots.
  3. Hover over Help.
  4. Click on About Google Chrome.
  5. Chrome will check for updates, and prompt you to download and install any that it finds.
  6. If Chrome does find any updates, simply follow the onscreen instructions to download and install them. If your internet browser finds that no updates are available, simply try out a different solution to this issue.

Solution 3: Clear your internet browser’s cache

Many users affected by this issue have been able to relieve their internet browsers of it by simply clearing out their internet browsers’ caches. Clearing out an internet browser’s cache is a pretty straightforward process – here’s what it looks like for Google Chrome users:

  1. Open Google Chrome.
  2. Click on the Menu button represented by three vertically aligned dots.
  3. Hover over More tools.
  4. Click on Clear browsing data….
  5. Set the Time range to All time.
  6. Make sure that all three available options are checked and enabled.
  7. Click on Clear data.
  8. Restart Google Chrome and check to see whether or not the problem has been fixed.

Solution 4: Turn off ActiveX Filtering for all websites (For Internet Explorer users only)

Internet Explorer has this feature called ActiveX Filtering that comes enabled by default – this feature is designed to prevent websites from installing and using specific apps, and this sometimes includes Adobe Flash Player. If ActiveX Filtering is what is causing you to see this error message while trying to stream audio or video on Internet Explorer, you can disable the feature if you simply:

  1. Launch Internet Explorer.
