For this I skip WMP and try VLC Player to see if the video file is OK. It will PEACEFULLY co-exist with WMP and does not touch any codecs.
Well, i open up home movies taken on a digital camera and only half the video plays. the video files will state their proper length and the timer bar looks as if it will run the full course but as soon as it reaches the movie will just stop, either replaying the first half or moving on to the next video in the folder/playlist, depending on the setting i have it on.
It says its the lastest WMP version and i'm running vista. There are no error messages and the files run fine on other peoples computers so i dont think its the files themselves which are corrupted, i've tried looking for help with WMP on the forums but so far nothing even slightly relates to this, would much appreciate any help, thanks.
