Windows Media Player crashes web browser
Posted on 2006-12-01
I have a problem that when I try to stream video with WMP from sites it crashes my IE and FireFox (which means its not a browser problem). the I can play videos from the HD normally with WMP but not stream it. the rest of the plugins run ok (Real media, quicktime...). I tried to reinstall but it didnt help so i uninstalled everything that had to do with WMP in the Add/Remove Programs and even erased the entire Windows Media Player directory from Program Files folder (windows warned me against it but I still did it) and when i tryed to play something it gave me the oldest interface ever but it worked! i could stream from the net perfectly only the WMP was old version. when i installed a fresh copy of WMP10 the problem returned.
what can I do about this?
