Windows 7 Home Prem, HP laptop. Have been using VLC for two years. Today an emailed .wmv file won't go through the virus scan procedure and play. Changed default pgm to Media Player with same results. No error message or results of any kind. Nothing changed on computer - no new downloads or changes, etc.
I failed to clarify just where this occurs. It seems to only occur when trying to open attachments to emails. I click the Link to open the attached movie file and absolutely nothing happens, where previously the files were checked for a virus, and then were ready to open. Links to Youtube videos open as they should. I apologize for not checking the problem further. This only happens on my Yahoo email account. The links open normally on my Hotmail and AOL accounts. I will probably just have to wait until Yahoo does something.
Thanks for your time.
