MPEG video playback problem

  1. Hello all!

    Not sure if this is the right forum, but I have a little problem with Windows Media Player, or just any other player in my PC while playing MPG's.

    Movie and sound play just fine, no fast forward, no distortion, etc.. but the time bar goes on quicker than the actual timing of the movie. For example, for a 5 minute video, WMP only plays 1 minute. If I try to stop the time bar from its quest to the finish line, then I get to see the part that was supposed to be playing at the place where I stopped the time, but it continues runnin quickly to the end, making it impossible to see the whole video.

    I have downloaded Microsoft's Codecs, and some others, but the problem still continues. Please help....

    Google for "free codecs" and grab what u can. That will hopefully fix it.
