Windows Media Player 10 problem
When I click on a url with a .mpg extension which is a movie file I
get the message below and I never had this problem before or just
rarely. I just downloaded Media Player 10 so is this causing the
problem because now I cant view any of these files when they are part
of a URL? I do have .mpg files on my hard drive and it does play these
files if I click directly on the file but links to the files do not
work. Any ideas? I have IE 7 and XP SP2.
