An HTML file is a webpage.

If they are MOV files from the Apple webpage, you need Quicktime to play
them www.quicktime.com

I don't know what format MTV uses. Perhaps RM... Real Player files...
www.real.com

but not videos from www.mtv.com or from www.blastro.com. I've read a few
things that sound similar to my problem and they all say the same thing
....check you are using Windows Media Player 7....I'm using Windows Media
Player 10 ...I've checked the video controller in device manager and it is up
2 date so I'm kinda baffled now...PLZ help

How up to date is your DirectX? I just went to MTV and the videos play fine
in the MTV player which is based on the Windows Media Player. What kind of
error message do you get?
