What is the player it's trying to use, and do you get any errors when trying to watch them?

KC, these are files opened from internet sites, like gamespot, News sites, just about all sites, I thought it maybe the java I was using so I update it. The program will download but when it starts the viewer is scrambled, you will see some movement but not able to view it. I think the viewer is microsoft's.

I'm using Yahoo on some sites and firefox on others, I have seen where IE, didn't work either. LA, how's Vista 64 working for you?

Vista 64 and >4GB is what everyone should be using :)

It's a dream :D

Only drawback is that creatives drivers crap out on 3GB or more of RAM. I have 24bit 192Khz static out of my X-Fi. The onboard audio for the evga board though is amazing. I'm waiting to see if Auzentech have fixed this bug or if I should grab an Asus Xonar instead though.

LA, I'm using 32 right now, so far this has been the only problem, checked the security on board nothing I could find also. I'm still thinking about getting Vista 64, just thought it may not be getting there driver together.

well after installing a k-lite codec pack on vista some of my internet video files, wmv, mpeg, stopped opening, instead i'd get an error page in IE. Have you tried:

Control Panel > Programs > Default Programs > Set Default Programs.

Then go to windows media player and "set this program as default"

Thanks Psyborg, I was beginning to think no one else ever had this problem, will give that a try.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
