I also tried reinstalling the media manager software, still get the same error message, cannot play videos at this time, no change since I originally upgraded to this version of media manager.
Has anyone heard anything about Verizon releasing a patch or fix for this problem?

I too am hit or miss with .avi files. Its random, when I add them to MM I get the corrupted/unsupported format message and it wont add to MM. Again this is hit or miss, about 75% of the files play fine.
Are there any guidlines for .avi files or how they are created. Somebody mentioned a codec issue, if that is the case what are the supported methods to insure functional .avi files? Thanks for all the help on this one.
*I have done the live update, and still havin the same issues with several .avi's. I can't add them to the MM library.
Here's an update, I tried a different computer that is hooked up to my network via ethernet and it plays the videos just fine. So why won't it play on this machine?
These are my specs:
Proc. Intel I7 920
Mobo: Gigabyte EX58-UD3R
OS: Windows XP SP3 32 bit
RAM: 3 gigs Triple Channel
Ethernet: Using stock what is on the mobo.
Last Windows Install: 3-4 months ago.
Antivirus: Kaspersky AV
That is all i can think of, also on a side note the video quality isn't all that great so if you're trying to use this as an alternative to running an HDMI/Component cable to your TV then you may wanna stick with running the cable.
Ok - I just ran the Live Update and was able to view the WMV and AVI videos in Media Manager.
I have to note, however, that when I am running my AVI file in full screen mode, the picture is awful - very pixelated and not sharp.
Hopefully, the quality will be improved in future releases. The quality is fine when viewed on my PC.
Went back in to try again and got a message that Media Manager is not able to play this video ath tis time. Please try again later.
Do I have to run Live Update every time I want to use this application? Seems ridiculous to me.
