Issues with Seek and Videos Stopping

As I play my videos on Windows Media Player it will stop half way through.

As I try to seek videos, it will completely cut out. The program did not crash, but it will start to play on the play bar, but no video is playing. Like its playing nothing.

It is doing it on both Windows Media Player and VLC.

I do have K-Lite Mega Pack for 64-Bit installed.

any suggestions?

My Computer:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

Likely that the video is corrupt (if only a few videos are causing it), install "Metafox" and "drop" the file on its shortcut, should fix it or keep the playable portion of the file.

I'm encountering a problem though, a lot of the time when I play the track, the seek bar doesn't truly represent the length of the track. Sometimes if I click to the...

Seek Yachts Background
I'm looking for a background I had originally but have now lost. It was a photo of a few yachts at anchor in still water by land, taken from low down on the water's surface. One yacht's mast had a seagull on top if I recall correctly. I have an idea it came from MS or perhaps was part of one...

Videos Suddenly Stopping
Hey all. I just got this brand spankin' new laptop today. I jumped online to watch some House and ran into some difficulty. No matter where I go, no matter what website I use, it will play for a minute or two and then suddenly stop. Not pause, not freeze, but stop. It's as if I've reached the end...
