    ok this is the 3rd time i have posted this and this dumb website keeps
    getting rid of my post. i wrote one on the 4th and 5th of Oct. I am trying
    to find out why all of a sudden i cannot play any videos from the internet
    that use wmp. i have intel 1.86 duo 4gb ram and dual nvidia 7900gs. wmp
    used to work fine now it is really starting to tick me off. i upgrade to 11
    and things stop working properly. i have gone back to 10 and now 10 wont
    play internet video's. Hopefully this website wont delete my post again. or
    i might just have to lay out some blasphemy (however you spell it) eg. VIVA
    LA MAC lol. j/k MS i love the blue screen of death!

    Posted here before, have same problem as you using Vista 64 and WMP 11, not
    getting any help.

    Clutching at straws here but we both have 4 Gig Ram. Could it be WMP
    defaults to some 32 bit mode and then cannot cope with 4 Gig Ram?

    WMP does run as 32bit by default on all 64bit systems.

    What's your hardware configuration (what video card)? Your issue shouldn't
    be related to his since he's on XP... what are the specifics problems you're
    running into... ?

    How precisely are things failing?

    A lock-up should either be codec or driver - what file types?

    I would start by turning video hardware acceleration all the way off and
    seeing if that helps:
