First question I always ask is:

Are you running in 32-bit color depth?

If not did you happen to install any new plugins while not in 32-bit?

Also check that you have the latest version of Quicktime and Windows Media Player, and that they are working correctly.

If everything seems like it should be fine, try reinstalling the program. Something must have changed since you used it last, and a reinstall might fix it.

If the program used to work, then something must have changed in-between then and now. Any ideas what it might be?
