This question was answered on December 27, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Find that a video disappears or turns purple and green about 20 seconds before it stops playing, or that video for every file in the playlist isn't displayed, turn off overlays.

To turn off overlays in Windows Media Player 9 Series or later, do the following:

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Performance tab

Click Advanced

Clear the Use overlays check box

If the problem continues, try turning off the video mixing renderer (VMR) You can turn off the VMR by clearing the Use video mixing renderer check box (available in the same location as the Use overlays check box).
