Default cant see streaming video in WMP

When trying to view a music video using WMP, nothing happens except that the player will keep saying that it is buffering. Before i have had problems with it not playing the video at all. The message will say 'ready' but nothing will happen

I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser and WMP version 10.

Also is there a better open source or free alternative to this program that will allow me to view streaming videos?

And another problem that im having with Internet Explore is that every time i run it a prompt shows up and says that i need to install language packs for Japanse. Im very hesistant to install them as they might be a trick to install a virus or trojan. What could be causing this problem and what should i do to stop it from happing?

I also have issues sometimes to. Since it's microsoft your best to use their products for microsoft specific situations. Just use IE for now and see if it works.

Feel free to install the language packs, they are found on your windows cd anyways. Free of windows-ware, spyware, adware, etc.
