yesterday i made a clean installation of windows 7 in my notebook
but i'm not able to play any video file in wmp 12 . i can play the mp3s though
it worked fine before i reinstalled the OS
whenever i try to open a video file it says wmp has stopped working and gets closed
pls guide me what to do
thnx in advance...

I've tried reinstalling the player, i've repaired it using Fix WMP , i've cleaned up the registries using ccleaner but no luck yet..

Windows does not have video codecs installed by default.
Did you install a codec pack the last time,like klite or shark007
or another?
Web videos will probably need you to install flash player.

You'lle never fix it until thenext reinstall of the os and that is not a sure fix. I tried for weeks to fix mine.

Try going to start/all programs/accesories.
right click command prompt and click run as administrator.
In the window type sfc /scannow and hit enter.
There is a space between sfc and /scannow
Let the system file checker run until it finishes.
The window will close.
Restart the computer and see if is working.
Worth a shot.
