Ok, I go to this site which has tutorials on music and other stuff, and it plays wmv files (with a windows media player window embedded in the site.) I never had any problems with this, but now, when I click play, it says: "connecting to media" (or something like that) and then says: Ready, and just stops. Before, it would say "connecting to media" and then buffer. I tried going to other sites and seeing if it was a server problem but it isn't, any file played with windows media player embedded doesn't work.
I tried playing around with the settings in windows media player but couldn't find anything.
p.s. I also have another annoying problem, sometimes everything is purple and i have to turn off video acceleration...why does this continuously happen?
I am running windows xp media center edition with nvidia 7900 gs if that helps. (dual core processor aswell)
