Hi Mercedes,

The file format is most likely not supported. Try using another video format. There are many video converting programs on the internet. Here's a link to a freeware program called Any Video Converter.

Additionally, you can try decreasing or disabling windows hardware acceleration in Windows display properties.

Hello,

To my knowledge these kind of errors are often encountered when Audio Video interleaved files are played in Microsoft Windows XP.

The cause of this error is that Media Control Interface supports only 25 active video windows at a time.

To resolve this error you need to install Hotfix application, the latest version. This application increases the number of active video windows to 200 and henceforth you do not encounter this error again.

I hope this information answers your questions.
