Yesterday my daughter in law came round to do some "learn direct" work on my pc.Being a BBC thing we had to download realplayer "why they cant use windows media player, i dont know".
Anyhow when i went to play my funny vids kept in WMP it cant find them although they still show in the playlist.Audio clips play ok. I have taken realplayer out but still no luck. Does anyone know where WMP stores the files, so i can check if they are still there. win98 wmp7.1 thanks john

In the search for files and folders box type the below and hit enter.


The reason why the BBC runs with Realplayer is because the grief M$ and the company who created WMP where causing, they where arguing over who owned what and why so and a decision had to be made.

LIke you said, they are in windows 644KB db file, but gone into explorer and cant find them.

How can i access them to delete them, as its a big file to leave laying about, and i cant watch them through WMP.

thanks john
