    For those of you who've tried to view the trailer for "Die Another Day" on Yahoo,

    I've had problems seeing it yesterday. When I try to open the window to view the trailer on Yahoo!, my computer hangs, then I get a "not responding" note. This has caused my computer to crash numerous times.

    I think Yahoo's server is going through some problems right now. So if you try to view any trailer on Yahoo, be forewarned.

    I was able to see the QuickTime version of the trailer with no problem.

    So please take note of this.

    The problem probably lies with the Media Player installation on your computer. When something says "not responding" it's in reference to the program that's not responding, not the yahoo server. I was able to view the Media Player version of the trailer no problem on my computer.

    Just watched it, played fine. BTW, looks kick-ass. A little disappointed they picked Halle Berry, but oh well.

    ..then I guess it's my computer's hard drive that's the problem...corrupt.

    Actually, probably Yahoo's over-the-top "autosensing this and that" that causes problems... well, may be Media Player too of course.

    Quicktime generally works so much better, at least for me - and it works completely hassle-free even in Opera, unlike Media Player.

    The teaser looks very bond-like though, should be a fun movie.
