    I downloaded a video on breakdancing from www.bboys.com with QuickTime. Then, I tried to download another, but I slipped and clicked on the WindowsMedia link. After the downloads finished, WM wouldn't open it. Said it wasn't a proper vedio file.

    I went back and tried to download it with QuickTime, but it won't download with QuickTime. I tried to change the Open With to QuickTime, but nothing happens.

    I'd like to see that particular vedio. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Xico

    What's the file extension of the downloaded file?
    Sometimes you can get WMP to play files it thinks it cannot by right clicking the file, open with WMP, if you get the message asking ' WMP doesn't play this type blah blah . ,. would you like to try and play this file with WMP' say yes. I can get WMP to play .mov (quicktime) files this way.
