Windows Media Player Problem

  Sandy110 20:00 29 Nov 2005

Windows Media Player has stopped playing mpeg files for some reason.It will play all other formats, avi,asf etc., and mpeg is checked in the file setup window but refuses to play mpeg.
I haven't added or removed any programs recently.
Any ideas?

Have downloaded the codecs. I can now get sound but the picture freezes at the first frame while the sound carries on

do you have power cinema installed.Very similar problem here was that power cinema took over the picture but left the sound on media player. Only found it by trial and error. Uninstalled power cinema and reset Med Player as the default for most of my media work
