WMP Error (ClassFactory Cannot Supply Requeted Class)

I get this error when trying to play a video file in Windows Media Player v. 8.00.00.4477.

Error: ClassFactory Cannot Supply Requeted Class

Here's the information for the file:

Image
Width: 352pixels
Height: 240pixels

Audio
Duration: 1:00:00
Bit Rate: 56kbps
Audio Format: Lame Mp3

Video
Frame Rate: 14 frames/second
Data Rate: 48kbps
Video Sample Size: 24 bit
Video Compression: MS-MPEG4 V3

I have another file from the same source with all of the same information, so I don't think it's a codec issue. Any ideas why this isn't playing?

You need to upgrade your ClassFactory. Duh.

Just kidding. I have no idea what would cause this.

Thanks anyway...hopefully someone will have the answer. I've tried google searches, and apparantly this is not an error that is exclusive to WMP.

"Class factory" is a term used in component-based programming; in the context of Microsoft's Component Object Model, it is defined as "an object that ..., which allows it to create other objects of a specific class."

Perhaps this file is meant to be played with the latest version of Media Player?
