Exactly what do you find so wrong with it?
Forgive please if it is not kosher to post a website, but this page <http://cambridgecitycoc.org.uk/sermon.htm> has a listen of sermons which won't play on my Acer Aspire 5740 with I3 M330 processor with Windows 7 x64.
Won't play it in IE8 or Google Chrome. You said earlier that the .wmv format is native to WMP. So any ideas why I'm not able to play. I went into file association to make sure .wmv was played by WMP. That's good. Baffled.
wont play for me either, maybe it's a bitrate problem

Just built a new W7 x64 system a couple of weeks ago. foobar2000 for audio and VLC for video. Works perfectly for me. I have not yet even fired up WMP at all.

I looked at Foobar2000. It's looks really cool. I have to try it. BTW, don't waste your time messing with WMP12 it will only make you heave in the toilet.

WMP12 isn't my favorite thing either, but you're really exaggerating the situation. You don't like WMP12, that's fine, you've said that. But going on like what I highlighted in my quote here just makes you sound petulant and childish.

Get over it and move on......if you find something you like better, that's great, tell us what you find....but enough with the immature WMP12 bashing.

I think your confusing WMP with a picture of Hillary.

Since I've added codecs for mkv files WMP is fine.
