    If the file is streaming while you are trying to delete it that explains the error. More info is needed as to what your are doing when you are getting the error and any additional error info would be helpful.

    Assuming this is Windows OS, press crtl+alt+del to open taskbar, or you can open the same by right click on title bar (start task manager), here you go to process tab and check if the player/software already opened on which you played the video. If yes, kill this process by right click. If there is not like that service, reboot your system in safe mode, and after entering desktop, hopefully you can delete the same by add/remove program.
