Default Windows Media Player problems on airplane - 12-06-2009, 04:36 PM

I was going to be travelling over Thanksgiving and loaded some movies on the mini10 to watch. When in the airport and on the airplane, the movies would not play - windows media player would act like it was playing them but the screen was black. The movies play fine when I am at home. Does windows movie player have to have internet access to play movies? Is something going on at the airport or on the plane that causes this? I have searched the web and can't find any info. The movies are .vob files.

maybe you traveled in to the twilight zone......was that one of the movies?

on a lighter note....there should be not reason they didnt far as I know WMP doesnt need the internet to work....

EDIT: I just turned off wireless on my laptop and started WMP and started watching no WMP doesnt need a connection to work, it was an AVI file not VOB, but I am sure that didnt make a difference..Good Luck....
