AMD Athlon XP 3000+
1.25Gb DDR 400 (PC3200)
Mobo: Soyo KT600
Nvidia GeForce 4 Ti 4600

if anyone could help then that'd be great. thanks,

Do you have the newest codecs? Try installing an update for WMP, or get some codec packs.

Oh, I hate that thing. It was terrible. Couldn't play streaming videos at all. Just froze at the very beginning.

Well, it's been fine for me. Which version did you use? (And yes it doesn't have the best interface in the world, lol).

I don't remember. But watching like embedded videos (music videos and such) it was incredibly awful.
