WMP10: delay starting playback of some videos

Hy everyone.

Dunno why but when playing some videos with WMP10 on some video formats
(particullarly mpeg2), there's a long delay between the playback selection
(when clicking on the playback button) and when actually the playback
starts.

I have a clip (100MB) coded with mpeg2 on my hard disk (7200RPM, 8MB cache),
Pentium M 1.6Ghz Winxp latest. When clicking on playback button, it takes 8
seconds to start playback! 'Connecting' is displayed in the information bar.
Even if stopping and starting again the playback the behaviour us the same.

Is there a reason?

Thanks
