Intermittent playability of a self-created wmv file in Windows Media Player

I created a wmv using Camtasia Studio. I rendered and uploaded to my site yesterday and tested it throughout the day. All was well. I just got to my office today and tried again but get the error message "The source filter for this file could not be loaded."

This is Windows XP Pro SP 2 with Windows Media Player 10.

Try to rightclick and save the file, if it's not loaded into a streaming server. See if the downloaded file can be played. Compare the downloaded file with the original one.
Did you test on the exact same machine or two different ones?  

If you have the Camtasio Studio software loaded on the one that played back successfully but not the one that failed it may be an issue with the compression used.
