How would I change a .WMV file (video) to a file that Quicktime will understand? My WMP isn't working. Thanks.

You need some kind of video editting software such as Adobe Premier.

http://videolan.org/vlc/ First, in the output settings sheet, make sure Encapsulation Method is "MPEG 1". 1. Open the movie in VLC.
2. Check to see if it plays right. If it doesn't, you're out of luck.
3. If it does, close it. Really.
4. Choose "Open File" from the file menu.
5. In the dialog box that pops up, click "Browse..." and find the file you want.
6. Check "Advanced output..." and click "Settings...".
7. In the insanely complicated sheet that popped up and scared you (don't panic), make sure the "File" radio button is selected. Click "Browse..." and save it wherever you want the final product to go. Make sure the extension (part after the dot) is "mpg", not "ts".
8. Make sure the "Video" and "Audio" boxes are checked and that the menus next to them are set to "mp1v" and "mpga", respectively.
9. Click OK, and OK again (to close the sheet and open the file).
10. Play the movie. All the way through.
11. Congrats! You should have a Quicktime-able video now!

Have you tried removing Media Player and then re-installing it? You might be better off getting Media Player running again.

Add/Remove programs, also go to Add/Remove Windows Components and make sure you remove them both. The, download a new version of Media Player and install it.

In Windows XP/2000:
Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> Look for the big Add/Remove Windows Components button on the left.

In Windows 98:
Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> Windows Setup Tab.

You may be prompted for your Windows 98 CD when you remove anything.
