    Hi cj0830,

    Some of the possible reasons why it happened can be due to a corrupted file, the
    codec used is not supported by the Player or Windows Media Player is outdated. For the meantime, we suggest that you follow the suggestions below:

    1. Play the file on a different computer and check if the file is not corrupt.
    2. Copy the file to the computer and check if you are able to play the file.
    3. To determine what codec was used with a specific file, play the file in the Player, if possible. While the file is playing, right-click the file in the library, and then click Properties. On the File tab, look at the Audio codec and Video codec sections.
    4. Update and/or reinstall your Sound Card and Video Card drivers. Along with DirectX when you are getting this error.
    5. Download and install Codecs by go to the PLAYER tab and check. Connect to the Internet and Download Codecs Automatically from the player
    6. Configure protocol settings. On the Tools menu, click
      Options, and then click the Network tab.
      In the Streaming protocols area, select all the protocol check boxes.
      When connecting to a server running Windows Media Services, Windows Media Player attempts to use all the selected protocols

    Let us know how it turns out.

    New Windows Media Player Plugin for Firefox

    Anyone who uses Windows Vista and Mozilla Firefox may be pleased to hear that the Windows Media Player team has now released a plugin for Firefox that should allow the browser to play WMP content on websites. Here are the steps to get it working:
    • Installation of the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin may require administrative access to your PC. It is recommended that you close all other open browser windows before continuing with the installation.
    • Click the Install button to automatically download and install the Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin.
    • Depending on your security settings, you may see a Security Warning dialog box. Click Install to install the plugin.
    There is a known issue if you are using Firefox version 2.0.0.3 on Windows Vista with the installer failing with error code -203. To work around this simply restart Firefox (you will get a notification that Windows Vista will be changing the Firefox compatibility settings) and then install again - the second time should succeed.

    The download is available here, and the new plugin works on all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista (although it is mostly intended for Vista, as that currently has no WMP support in Firefox).
