    GOM player weired issue: Invalid Charactor


    HI Experts,

    I am having weired issue with GOM player from couple of weeks. This all started when I updated the GOM player.

    Problem: Each time I play video with it this pop up an error window (Image attached)

    Click image for larger version

    Tried: Completely uninstalled the GOM and installed again. No change.

    Please tell me if anybody have solution.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    You may have scripting disabled in your Internet
    Explorer.

    To enable scripting:

    Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer
    toolbar and select "Internet Options."

    Click the "Security" tab.

    Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the
    "Custom Level" button.

    Scroll down to "Scripting."

    Enable the following:

    * Active scripting
    * Allow paste operations via script
    * Scripting of Java applets are all enabled

    Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

    Note: Restart GOM Player nd you should not see that Error again

    You also need to make sure you have the latest
    Macromedia Flash Player installed. If you don't
    have the flash player installed messenger will
    not open and crash before you are able to sign in.

    Please note: Use Internet Explorer to install the
    player. You can get the latest Flash player, by
    clicking here. >>

    and also Install the latest Java here >>>

    You may very well need a GOM expert to help with your specific issue. If none respond, I would suggest the following:

    Post your issue at the GOM support site: GOM Media Player - Frequently Asked Questions
    Try an alternative media player like VLC and see if that fails the same way.

    Now, if both media players fail the same way, come back here and let us know; however, if only the GOM player continues to have issues, you may have to deal with their (opensource) GOM support directly or just stick with the new player that works.


    Good luck with your issue.

    And you still are my friend. I was just expressing my opinion; however, that does not mean that you might not have the answer. Please continue your support effort here. Again, that was just my opinion and recommendation.

    it may be true but if you uncheck that notification one you will not know if you have that problem or not.it could cauze problems.even if you check the disable script for java it will stay saying that Script error.
