Certain video files cause computer to crash

Whenever I try to play certain WMV files in VLC, my computer screen goes black and in full mode. I can hear audio, but the computer effectively crashes and task manager won’t open, forcing me to restart. What is the problem? I don’t think it’s a virus, as the file works perfectly for everyone else. Thanks in advance.

Have you installed w32codec?

No, where can I install that?

su
# zypper install w32codec

Is there any download link? It won’t let me DL.

Open yast–>software–>software install/unistall and write in search gap w32codec.
