Something strange happened on my system today. When I click on a video clip link on a webpage that opens in windows media player, it suddenly stopped
working. I would get audio but only a frozen image. So after cleaning spyware and playing around with some settings I made an observation.
If I right clicked on the clip and downloaded it to my desktop it would play fine.
I discovered that it has something to do with deleting my temporary internet files. When I clear them and go back to the page the video clips do this
freezing thing. So when it happens, if I close WMP and then click on the clip again it will play because I guess the clip got loaded into my temp
files?? So I have to repeat this process for every clip on a page. And if I clean my temp files I have to do this all over again as well.
Everything was working fine until today. I've never had this problem before and I would delete my temp internet files pretty often and history and
such. Oh ya and even weirder, this only happens with mpg files. All other types play fine.
It's really bugging me and I'm hoping it's just a setting that somehow got messed up. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
