I used to be able to click on a video link on a web page, and Media Player would start up and play it. Easy. Convenient. Now, I get an error page similar to that of a missing page. So, as a result, I have to download each video to my Desktop and then play it from there.

Does anybody anywhere have any idea what I'm talking about? I am overwhelmigly disappointed and frustrated that I cannot find a solution to this.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

This might help. It worked for me when I had a strange problem. Open WMP and open "access applications menu". Go to Tools>Options and select File Types. Click the "select all" tab then Apply and OK. See if that helps
