    Hi all,

    I currently cannot use media player, it crashes when ever i use it. I would use an alternative but i have an online tv service that only runs with media player. It does not give an error message apart from "Windows media player has encoutered an error, sorry for the inconveniense" and just closes. This also occurs with online files embeded into website in IE. I have this problem with all versions of media player but currently have v11 with a windows xp sp2 OS. any help would be much appreciated.

    if possible with your tv service, i would try downgrading from v11 to v10 and go from there

    i believe the downgrade instructions are in the readme file
