Unable to play video files in Windows Media Player

  Max Star 19:41 16 Jan 07


I cannot play any video files from websites with video files embedded into them since I downloaded the latest WMP 11. However, video files will play OK normally in Windows Media Player.

Does anyone have any ideas? Please can someone help?

Thanks Technotiger but unfortunately that did not work.

Hmmm, I did have exactly the same problem, which in my case was caused by the update from IE6 to IE7. I reverted to IE6, since when, I have had no more problems. I tried IE7 several times, but had the same result each time - so am now sticking with IE6.

I try not to use IE at all. I prefer to use Firefox. It might be worth just going back to Windows Media Player 10. I've seen a few threads on how to do this and I don't think the latest version is that great anyway.

I had the same problem a few nights ago and got this courtesy of `buteman`. It worked click here it`s called AVS DVD Player.
