It is normal that nowadays we play most of the multimedia content from a web browser or application. In doing so, we may come to meet the error code 102630which means that we have selected an empty playlist.

Technically speaking, the error should only appear if we click on the wrong link. However, the problem makes an appearance, even when we try to access genuine content. In this case, we can say that it is a network error and this can be generated due to different reasons.

How to fix error 102630

Check internet connection

In case we encounter the error code 102630 while we are trying to play an online video. What we will have to do is make sure we have a stable internet connection. If we have a slow or unstable connection, we will see this error more often than we would like.

So we will have to use a web service to verify the status of our connection and in case of obtaining negative results, we recommend contacting the ISP or internet service provider to make the relevant claim.

video repair

In the event that we receive the error trying to play a local file, then we will have to check if the file is damaged. There are many programs that are capable of repairing damaged files. We can find several programs available for different platforms like Remo Software, Stellar, etc.

Change the size of the file or its format

Another thing that we can do when the error appears locally is simply change the size or type of the file. It is possible to convert a video that has MKV format to MP4, in this way we will be able to play the video once we have changed its format. This is something we can do with playing VLC Player.

Install VLC Player

As for playing local files, it would be best to use VLC Player. It is a player that comes with a large number of codecs pre-installed and can play almost any kind of format. In this way, we would be avoiding suffering a wide variety of problems with this software, although we recognize that no program is perfect and from time to time it may have problems playing content, although it is extremely rare for it to happen.
