windows media player problem

Hi, I have windows media player 9. I've used it in the past without issues. Now it won't play .wmv files. The video constantly flashes and the sound skips around. All my updates are current. I'm using windows XP. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Re: windows media player problem

Try to remove mediaplayer and then re??nstall it.
Updating DirectX helps sometimes with vidoeproblems.
Update Video and sounddrivers if possibel.
