    Windows Media Player does not play some files it just played a couple
    of days ago. I am going crazy over this! It actually appears to be
    ASF files that is the problem. I downloaded a file and it gives a
    error message.

    If you go to this webpage and try to play the streaming video or
    download the file and play it, I get the same message: error
    downloading codec!

    Here is the website:

    And no, this is not a plug for this website either. I was able to
    watch it just the other day and downloaded the file and was able to
    watch it.

    Please help!

    I found a answer for this! For me anyway, I just went to Microsoft and
    got the Window Media Player 8 codecs download package. This is the
    website url:;en-us;324290

    This reinstalled this missing codec. I hope by posting this, it will
    help someone out. I literally spent hours and hours on my own trying
    to figure this out.
