    Which version of Windows are you running ?
    Is your WMP up to date with the patches ?
    Do you get any pop up message giving details of faults ?
    Is it YOUR machine ?

    1)Question one: what browser are you using?
    2)Question two: are you sure that you have all the right plugins installed?

    I have windows media player 10. This computer is basically brand new. Home computer. I don't get any error messages. When I try to play a video in yahoo the window pops up and says "detecting Internet connection speed" but nothing happens.
    Not too long ago I had to do a destructive recovery. Before that everything was fine.

    to determine version of XP

    right click on the 'my computer' icon on the desktop
    select 'properties'

    it s all there ..........

    [edit]
    are you havng any other issues with the PC ?
    can you play video's / mpeg's etc that have been saved to the local machine ?

    it could just be a 'streaming' issue, in that the online video is too large for your internet connection to 'buffer' at the speed it runs at, and so it times out / dies on you.

    what speed IS your internet connection

    dial up 56kbps
    broadband 500kbps - 8Mbps ??
