Default WindowsMediaPlayer Freezing

When I play .avi files, after a few minutes playing a video, the picture freezes. The sound, however, is not affected and continues. If I try to skip ahead, then the whole program freezes and I have to "End Now" the program.
Any help on how to fix this freezing problem is appreciated.

I'll try those. I've also tried VLC Media Player, but I didn't like it. The picture was messed up. If I made the window wider or longer, then the picture doesn't adjust to it and people have like really long faces or really wide faces. Same goes for the objects and others.
