I've been trying for days to figure this out . . . Some embedded video files will not play in internet explorer. The windows media player shows on the web page, but it says opening media and nothing ever happens. Then, when I try to leave the web page internet explorer freezes. This only seems to happen with .asf and .wmv files.
I re-installed windows media player and that did not work. I made sure that the player settings were set to play asf and wmv files. I don't think I need any codecs (but I'm not entirely sure) and the Iexplorer security settings seem normal.
Help me! I'm so frustrated.
