Usually, for any video file, Windows Media Player plays video along with audio, unless user press mute, so that only video comes out. In such a way reverse, is it possible to make media player play videos in which audio may come out, not video, and media player may show a blank screen or default animation instead of video? I use Windows 7. Is it possible to play videos without displaying video in Windows Media Player 12
Download VLC player.
Play whatever video you want > right click on the video > select video > video track > disable.
This will play only audio and will not consume resources for video.
A couple of suggestions:
- Minimize Media Player - audio will play in the background
- Use Miro Video Converter which can create an audio version (MP3) of your Video file
