WMP freezes playing Xvid avi

I am on win7 x64 7600 RTM
playing Xvid /avi movies WMP freezes for few mins then after 5-7 mins again start playing normally, assuming it could be codec problem I installed Klite along with media player classic, but even that does not work .

What is the source of the problem?
I tried KMplayer too but that also freeze

Do I need to install x64 version of Klite or will 32 bit version do the job?

No one with the answers?
I tried VLC latest version but that also does the same freeze.

Is it windows7 problem or the xvid I am playing, I have tried playing 8-10 of them they all have this problem.

I had a similar problem with both the 32 and 64bit versions of 7. I solved the problem by turning off the "write-cache buffer" on the hard drive.

Try KMplayer or WMPClassic.

Try running a chkdsk on you HDD - maybe the indexes are corrupted hence the sticking.

I have been pulling my hair all these days with no solutions yet.

all players kmplayer,VLC, Klite MPC WMP & any other I could lay my hand on installed 1 by 1 but none solved the problem.

The movie freezes randomly for few mins & now its even happening with other video file formats not just avi/xvid. I have been using Win7 x64 since build 7000 but never had such problems.

Running chkdsk did not find any indexes corrupted so that does not seem to be the problem.

did this occur when you installed windows 7 or shortly after? the reason i ask i have seen in both vista and xp that some times shortly after installing the os i will out of the blue start having problems with my vids. i end up doing a triple secure wipe of c and then reinstall the os and i do not get the problem again. i figure it must have been some setting or piece of software i was using at the time. just an idea to explore.

i noticed above that even vcl won't play them. it is strange that wmp will play them and vcl will not. it should be the other way around. i am now thinking have someone test the files on their system. if they work on vcl and mpc there then you need to reformat.
