Windows media player problems

Windows media player problems

Not sure but this page here

states that..."But the AVI format is not suited for Internet playback so .avi files are downloaded to a users PC and then played locally rather than trying to "stream" the content".

Could it be that the files your trying to play are AVI.

The only other thing I can think of is to open WM player, goto tools, options and select "file types" uncheck every box here, click apply, then tick every checkbox, select apply and close and then try a file on the 'net then.
Sorry I can't help more.
