ok i have had this problem with windows media player for a long time now. everytime I try to watch a video on such sites like kontraband.com or abum.com the video does not open and the internet freezes and stops responding. i am up to date with windows media player too so that is not the problem.

but on certain sites like ebaumsworld.com i can watch videos fine.

i have no clue what the problem might be...help??

Howdy, Chump1696! :)

Welcome to TSG! (y)

Now, sites like ebaumsworld use flash. Other sites like the ones you mentioned use a Windows Media Player Plugin. What version of Windows Media Player and Internet Explorer have you got? Also try a different browser such as:

Mozilla
Firefox
Netscape
Opera
