Video Rebuffering Problem

    I am trying to play a video on my company’s training site. I can play the
    video on another system but it refuses to play on the target system. What
    happens is when I click on the video link, buffering takes place up, to 100%
    and the screen turns blue as if the video was going to start playing but it
    starts buffering again, up to 100% then it starts over buffering once again.
    Have you ever seen this? I have tried removing and reinstalling Windows
    Media player 9, modifying the buffering time settings from five to 30 seconds
    and back again. I have even remotely connected to my machine from the target
    machine to compare my security settings in Internet Explorer to the security
    settings on the target machine. The only thing that is different is the .net
    framework 1.1 that is installed on the target machine and it is not installed
    on my machine. I don’t think that could be preventing the video from running
    on the target machine. However, on the target machine I have no problems
    running video from other websites, like CNN, yahoo, google, etc. Strange.
    The video will not even run in Windows 2000 safe mode with all the software
    and antivirus programs disabled. Any suggestions? The target machine was
    recently wiped clean and windows 2000 was reinstalled. CODECS need to be
    reinstalled maybe?
