    WMP will happily play all music files, and will open with no problem, however
    as soon as I attempt to get it to play a video file (mostly avi's if it
    matters) it errors and closes. In addition, when I open a folder containing
    all my video files, the folder errors and closes as well.

    I'm running WMP 11 beta at the moment on a P4 with Windows XP Professional.
    The problem literally started overnight. I was originally using WMP 8 when it
    started, which I upgraded to WMP 9 and then 11. The problem occurs in all 3
    versions, as well as the two versions of the classic player I have.

    Sorry if the problem is the OS or the video files, but I have no idea what's
    going on! Any help appreciated.
