So we've ruled out your CPU as the culprit. It's possible you're  
running out of RAM, but not that likely (unless you're running  
FireFox with fifteen open tabs at he same time).

I'm not big on Windows video stuff these days, and without further  
information, there's not much more that *I* can do to help you. You  
could try installing VLC and seeing what that does with the file. If  
VLC plays it fine, then the problem exists somewhere within the  
Windows Video libraries. If VLC chokes, it'll at least give us more  
verbose output on the problem.

VLC can be found at videolan.org
