i have been having this problem for a while where if i play a .mpg movie file it works fine but when i play a .wmv file i hear sound but no video. i am running windows 98 and i am using windows media player 7.1 could it be that my windows media player version is too low?

Download the K-Lite codec pack and see if that solves the issue.

Or you could just download the Microsoft media player codec package:
Link here (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/format/codecdownload.aspx). This will install all the .wmv & .wma codecs and a couple others.
