    When I now open video files in IE 7 for example
    " or .avi". I get the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error. This only began happening recently previously these would open in the media player correctly. The defaults all appear to be configured fine. When I download the target and open the file they open correctly in the media player but not when you click on them from a link. Any ideas?

    sometimes it is a IE issue, sometimes a website issue, and sometimes an issue with the media player, make sure you have all the video files you want to play set to use windows media player as the default player, i know gallery2 and ie/ff has issues playing avi files, yet all my linux/bsd boxes are fine with mplayer plugin, so it could be just that
