Problem with WMP

I have windows 7 x64 and I've this weird problem with WMP, every time I try to play a certain video I get this message:
"Your computer is running low on memory. Quit other programs, and then try again."
while the task manager shows that I have more than 1GB of free ram, Also when I try play other videos they work just fine.

any Ideas?

This issue has been around for a while and a simple google search will throw up all kinds of results, many of them inane. Since you have plenty of free memory obviously its not a memory issue. I would suggest use VLC or another 3rd player of your choice for this particular video.
