do not get javascript and java confused with each other. they are very different
have you got windows media player and internet explore 6 sp1?
have you installed any other media programs just before this occured.

it looks like the website is trying to use the windows media player activex control but it cannot access it.
trying reinstalling or upgrading to windows media player 9 or
could be an error on the site.

Hello deepthiji =)

U have not mentioned abt ur OS,,,,, basically what u need is to First Empty the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History of IE,,,,, then goto Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>and CHECK Disable Script Debugging and UNCHECK Display a message abt every script error !!!!

Apply and check,,,, if this fails and an IE Repair is the best option here :)

hmmmmmmmmm that's strange..... :-?

i cannot access this site, as it asks me for a LOGIN ID and password, so cannot check the format of the videos present there,,,, can u tell me this if they are .avi or .mpeg, or .ram movies??

Also is it the only this site which is creating problem, or if u goto movies.yahoo.com and try playing some trailors or clips, they return with the same error ??

hmmmmmmmmm means a java script error... well look deepthi,,, this can be related to java problem,,, but if other sites using java are working fine,,,, we have to admit that Java is working fine and this particular site has some problems ??

java applets are used in games.yahoo.com, like in pool etc etc
can u play those games without problems ??

I think the programer of that site (writer of the PHP page) are at fault but you can check it:

If you use from IE, go to Menu: TOOLS/Internet Options/
and on that dialog go to the Advance tab and select all options in the Multimedia part.
