    Playing MIDI files


    Hi!
    This laptop (netbook) which runs Windows 8.1 is fairly new. On my old netbook (Windows XP) I had no difficulty playing MIDI files, specifically the choir part learning files on the website CyberBass_Home_Page. On this computer they just don't play at all. Yet it is said Windows Media Player is automatically installed with Windows 8.1.

    Please can someone tell me what I am doing wrong.

    Thank you for any help!

    It's probably the website player at fault.

    I just tested a midi on my computer & it played.
