I got this movie, well I have a few, I downloaded from the Internet, I have the right audio and video codecs installed.  The Problem is I get this Runtime Error - Abnormal termination everytime I click on this movie.  The other one is I watch this movie for awhile and when I stop it, it'll give me a runtime error and a visual C++++ library, is there anything I can do?

Just try to use STHSVCD media player. If you don't have search it on www.google.com.
This normally plays any kinds of media in mpeg encoding.
You might have a bit of trouble finding it. But you will find it.

I had this same problem, tried everything above and reloading over the top etc but nothing worked so tried installing the codecs one at a time. In th end I tried a newer version of FFDshow from here http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/codecs_and_filters/ffdshow.cfm and it worked perfectly. I hope this of use to someone else.

I disagree.

Although the solution provided by CentrexSupport is a possibility, it was provided 14 months AFTER the question was asked, and the asker of this question doesn't seem to be active on experts-exchange since February of 2003...

As such, it's an impossibility that CentrexSupport helped the asker.
