Windows Media Player 9

I have WMP 9 and have all the updates and am running it on Win XP

well my problem is alot of my videos will only play video only for like 5 seconds then will only play all sound for the rest of the video.. The screen turns black after 5 secs of play basically..

Has anyone had this problem and do you have any suggestions?

You may be missing a codec. There is a program called AVIcodec that will tell you if you are missing the codec and can load page from which you can download the file. It will also give you a list of all codecs currently installed.
