Please Help Me With My Window's Media Player

sometimes when i download tennis videos they don't seem to play well. the audio is always good, but the visual is super slow. does anyone know what causes this and how i can fix it? i instilled the new divx but it is still the same. thanks.

check that you're allowing wmp to automatically download codecs.

wmp is notoriously reticent re new codecs ... i recommend VLC media player. google it, its freeware but more versatile.

after installing any shareware/freeware run a spyware check.
