  • Hi,

     

    Before moving on, I would like to confirm that if it is able to play the other video or music on your local driver.

     

    If it is able to play the other music and video on your local driver, this issue can be caused by the corruption of the download video file.

     

    If the other files are also failed to play, please move to the following steps to troubleshoot it:

     

    First, Please try to perform system restore to test this issue.

     

    Also, please boot the computer in Clean Boot to confirm if the issue persists.

     

    Additionally, please temporary remove the other third party players to have a test.

     

    If the above steps cannot fix this problem, you may take the steps which Drtunababa provided to reinstall the Windows Media Player.

     

    Regards,

     

    Sabrina
