    WMP has stopped working - a problem caused the program to stop working

    correctly. windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is


    I've been up all night &

    havent got a winks worth of sleep yet trying to figure out this problem -

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Some Vids WILL play on WMP (11) & Some wont, even of the same file

    format.. There are nothing wrong with the particular vid clips because

    i've played them in the past with WMP, These same vids that will not play

    with wmp will also not play on VLC & thats what makes it very odd because

    everything always plays with vlc... However the avi. MOV. etc clips that

    will Not play with wmp & vlc WILL play on QuickTime player & it plays


    The error message i get when i play with wmp is just this standard msg &

    nothing more "Wmp has stopped working - a problem caused the program to

    stop working correctly. windows will close the program and notify you if a

    solution is available." Then I press close & the whole app closes...

    When i try to play on vlc, i get the same sort of error msg.. "VLC can't

    recognize the input's format:
    The format of 'C:\xxxxxxxxxxxxx.MOV' cannot be detected. Have a look the

    log for details." & no further details are there, There isn't a report for

    vlc, however there is a problem report for wmp.. The details are below.

    I dont know what importance this "Fault Module Name" is, but i've searched

    my butt off & have not came up with anything more than seeing it mentioned

    once here in a general irrelevant question.. I did delete the file

    "keeping it in my trash bin" & tried to play the vid clips, then because

    there was no difference as well as not knowing how important or what its

    for, i Restored the file libmplayer.dll back to its original place..

    So my problem is that wmp will not play some vid clips but it will play

    others, regardless of the format.. However, i do believe (cuz i cant try

    every video i have) that the ones that will not play are vids that i took

    personally from a couple different camcorders/cameras, & there are a

    couple different formats.. All of the "Movies" that i didn't record

    myself, play just fine. I do not know when this problem started becuase i

    dont play the vid clips real often, but i know its somewhat recent because

    every so often, when i put pix/vids on my computer, i do play a couple to

    make sure they have transfered ok. (this isnt a setting on the cameras

    side because as i stated, its the same with different recording devices, &

    the vids have played fine before)

    Thanks for any help, I've been reading all day/night trying to fix this

    problem & everytime i think i've found the solution, (someone recieving

    the same error messages) i find out that they are recieving them in

    different situations & such...

    -- I understand this should tell what the problem might be, but even tho i

    know my way around just about any computer, I dont understand how this

    info is able to help my issue..:(:(:(:(
