  1. Most of my video files are in WMv format Now the thing that annoys me is more often than not i can't play theses files without windows media Crashing.

    Now I can convert the files to AVI and that works but I hate having to download the files and convert them before I watch them please help

    I take it you mean that when you watch streaming media from the web.

    If the files arent on your HD then you have to watch them in the format the author has encoded them, otherwise you have no choice but to download them then convert them to your chosen format.
