I feel bad about doing this, because I'm sure the Zim's don't want this board to turn into the "help me with my computer problems" board. Most things can be found with a quick Google search.

However, that is why I am here. I tried Googling, and I got nothing. So here goes. At my work, Windows Media Player seems to have this thing where, if you mess with the volume or push pause at any time or use any of the buttons actually, the video goes away and all I get is the audio. And all of a sudden, my computer at home does the same thing. Basically, I am forced to watch WMV videos in their default settings without pausing or rewinding at any time.

Does anyone know why this is happening, or failing that, a different program or codec (since it happens with built-in videos as well) that will fix it?

My tip would actually be converting the video to mpeg or avi. Try using STOIK Video converter, i'm sure you'll find it in google. This is a usual problem with WMP, it's not a steady video player, i'd recommentd getting another video player like Real player aswell.

Will that work for streaming video? Because that's usually the only time I have to deal with it. I know sometimes they make it difficult to save to disk, so that's the only thing I worry about.

If you're reffering to the video converter it specialises in coverting streaming video i.e. .asf and .wmv

Mr. Boffo, I've had the same thing happen, but only when the media player is part of a webpage. I just switch to fullscreen and back, and the video returns. Not a permanent fix, but it works.
