  • Hello,


    Thank you for posting!


    Based on my experience, some audio compression formats in Yahoo Messenger lack corresponding codec on Windows Vista.


    I performed a research for this issue, two posts from Yahoo Answers forum may help you fix the problem:






    Note: This is not official method from Microsoft, and I just listed it here for your reference.


    Alternatively, you may contact Yahoo to report the issue. They may provide the codec, or correct the error in next version of Yahoo Messenger.


    I hope the issue will be fixed soon!
