I had a friend send me a mp3 video file through yousendit.com. The first time I opened it the video played fine in the windows media player. If i close out of the player and come back to it it wont play, it will say "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file." Does anyone know what I need to do?

Hi,That seems strange that it plays it fine once and then not atall(It can't be missing codecs then).If I were you I would download and install VideoLans VLC player.I used to use WMP for films but kept running into codec problems etc,etc until I used VLC.VLC plays pretty much anything you throw at it,you should try it out!
