Windows Media Player Freezes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sometimes when I am in Windows Media Player playing WMV files one of several things happen:

1.) It plays fine

2.) When I try to skip it will freeze a little then play the audio leaving the video freezed from the previous spot

3.) The video plays fine but I cannot skip the video, exit the program, press pause or anything

I need help with 2 and 3!!!

I have Windows XP SP2 on this Machine, Windows Media Player 11

I occasionally get #2 and the no skipping part of #3, but it's only with certain videos. I think it has to do with how well the file was encoded, if its even possible to have a poorly encoded file vs a well encoded one.

I would also try running a prime95 or orthos stress test to make sure its not your CPU. Memtest couldn't hurt either.
