Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file


  • Windows Media Player C00D11B1

    is what I get when I try to play AVI files.  I downloaded Divx player and it works fine.  I was even able to play the file in Quicktime player.  Anybody got any ideas?  My computer is Win 7 with Media Player 12.  I even copied the file to a XP machine and the file plays fine on that computer.

  • If you install FFDShow, does that help?
