Cannot play videos in browser

Hey guys, this issue has me stomped, I used to be able to play wmv or mpg files right there in the browser. When I click on the file, instead of playing, now it wants me to download it. It will play if I dl it, but I want to play it right there in the browser.

Hi zay,

What browser are you using, and what file format are the videos you're trying to watch?

Cheers,

Thanks for the response, I got it working. I went to an actual file, then right clicked, then chose open with, then selected wmp. The file types were mpg, and believe it or not, wmv files.
