It happened when Windows Vista replaced XP, and again when Windows 7 replaced Vista. Compatibility problems have cropped up again now that users are moving from Windows 7 to Windows 8, with many people complaining online that Windows 8 Media Player refused to play (or garbled) certain video files, or that the player got "hung" in its attempts at playback.
