Windows Media Player Crashes but no error message is displayed

  1. Sooo, I've been trying to figure this out for about a month now. Whenever I'm playing somethign in WMP it'll play for about 2-3 minutes and then randomly crash. It's with both audio and video, and no error message is displayed. I've tried installing all the regular codecs, I've uninstalled the program, reinstalled the program, rolled back to WMP 10 and none of it worked. A few days ago I used a system restore which temporarily fixed the problem...for one day. Any help you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Try VLC or Media Player Classic just google them and they're freeware... There is a newer one that plays everything. VLC plays everything including FLV flash from youtube.
