No video with supported format and MME type found

After reinstalling the Windows Vista operating system, I had gone to a christian Web site http://www.hischannel.com and when I had tried to watch one of the Sermons from their archive this came up below

No video with supported format and MME type found

No video with supported format and MME type found

I began by trying different things, first updating to Service Pack one , installing the Adobe Flash Player, and Real player nothing was working. I was at the end of my wits, then I  asked Jesus to help me with this. As I was looking over the website,




I came across something that said  “LIVE AUDIO Stream” TAB near the bottom was this “Live TV Bandwidth Tester” which included “SilverLight player update.

Once I downloaded and installed it on my computer, I no longer ended up with the error “No video with supported format and MME type found”


Before installing SilverLight, make sure you uncheck the installation of the Bing Search Engine, and making MSN as your homepage, unless this is something you would like installed.

I hope this helps.

No Disc, now what do I do?

I recently was having some trouble with my computer. I was trying to watch a sermon from Greg Laurie at his website http://www.harvest.org. It was becoming very glitchy and I couldn’t figure out what was going on. I believe I was reminded by the Lord, about the video card on my computer which i had totally forgotten about. The Video Card  is a Ati Radeon HD 2600 Xt. What I had forgotten to do was load the driver on the computer, after I had recently reinstalled Windows Vista. i began searching  all over for the disk but, to no avail. I then began checking the internet for a possible website, turns out there are a lot of companies out there that will try to solve your problem, like driver update websites, some end up not helping you at all, just giving you more problems. Lucky I was able to find a link from Microsoft.com, which had a link to the AMD website. I have provided a link below


when you get to the website,

AMD Automatically Detect

go down where you see Latest AMD Drivers and Software, I had tried the Automatically Detect and Install you Driver, and found this was not much help for me, maybe your results will be different.

Once you locate your specific driver, for your particular Video card you will notice that there is not one listed for the Windows Vista,

Radeon HD 2600







here click “OTHER” which will take you to another page, which ask if you have a 32 or 64 bit. To find out you will need to go  to Start> type in the Search Field “System” once you click on this, you will be taken to another window, look under “System Type, here is displayed if your computer is a 32 or 64.

Radeon HD

Once you have clicked on the proper bit size go down to where you see Downloads click on where you see Catalyst Software Suite

So, how do I shut off the track pad on my ASUS X550CA Laptop?

The Track pad on a  laptop is a useful tool,  however, I found out early on,   it got to be more of a nuance when I tried searching for something on the internet.

YouTube, had several people who had different ideas, however since I was working with Windows 8.1 at the time, this being a tablet format nothing worked.

To give you an example,  I would try to type inside the search field, and I would end up with garbage as the text. This would then  delete itself and it got to be so frustrating. I went as far as switching to a large keyboard for a while.  I was at my wits ends and just thought that it was something I was going to have to deal with.

I feel the Lord lead me to the answer when I thought of giving it one last try on the internet. It was like there it was, so I figured well it wasn’t going to be easy, having to go through the Bios, my thinking was why there of all places. So, I gave it a shot and sure enough it was just what I needed. Thank You Lord Jesus.
