What kind of virus/problem is this? (Windows media player won't play trailers)

Ok, so when I open windows media player and play my own music, it's perfectly fine.

But when I want to watch a trailer, or something that is online, the windows media player window simply will not work. It just started doing this recently. It loads, and then says "Ready", down at the bottom, but it does nothing. I can't figure out what to do. Help!

In case it matters, Windows XP is my operating system, and i'm using Netscape.

1)Try clearing your cache in Netscape.
2)Try to save the file to the hard drive (if the web site allows), right click save as. Open the file from the hard drive. Will it play using this method?
3) What is the file type that you are trying to play?
