When I am on-line and click on a movie file from a web
site the file will not play regardless of if the default
player is windows media or quicktime, etc. All players
give error messages so I don’t think it’s the players.
The problem occurs with MPG but does not occur with WMV
files, those play fine on or off line.
Now if I right click on the MPG and download it to my
desktop it players perfectly through the same players.
I have tried everything, can someone help.
The Window Media error is
“Windows Media Player cannot find the specified file. Be
sure the path is typed correctly. If it is, the file does
not exist at the specified location, or the computer
where the file is stored is offline."
Now I get a different one with Quicktime so I am pretty
sure it’s not the players.
I have Zone Alarm but I disabled it.
I have exactly the same issue. I’m monitoring for a reply. Any reply. May have something to do with sp2. Tried loading other players but no change. Was told by someone it could be a codec issue, whatever that is.
