media player judder

  Head hurts 16:01 14 Nov 2008

media player 11 has during the last month or so started to judder when playing wmv files, these same downloads used to play perfectly so probably not a codec issue unless someones knows differntly. have done a google search which mostly blames codecs and i have downloaded a couple of codec packs but still playback is juddery. i cannot recall when exactly this started but would appreciate any help in curing this. i do have Cybalink power2go which plays the same files perfectly.

It could be related to media player reading the files from your hdd. Sometimes if your pc is fragmented fairly badly you will notice when you load media player or skip songs, usually it will take longer and you will notice jumps as such. The fact that you can play these files ok with another player suggests its some issue with media player. If nothing works could always try a re-install?
