Windows 7: Trouble Playing WMV VC-1 File

Trouble Playing WMV VC-1 File

Hi

My PC is installed with Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit, and i have a 1.7Gb HD WMV VC-1 file. When i attempt to playback on Windows Media Player it takes a long to time to seek/skip forward. I also installed GOM player and VLC, both have trouble playing the file, VLC actually crashed on one occasion.

I am sure my PC is capable of carrying out this task, it recieved a 5.9 on the Windows Experience Index.

What could be the problem?

Thank You


NOTE: I have not installed any codec packs.

Hi and welcome

Was win 7 installed clean or as an upgrade?

WMP should have no problem playing that. How much memory is installed? How much page file?

Thanks for the reply, i recieved my new PC with Windows XP already installed. I performed a custom installation and deleted the partition which was already on the computer.

I have 4Gb of memory, what do you mean by page-file?
