    Youre lacking a video codec to decode the movie.

    Run the movie through GSPOT and the program will tell you which codec you need.

    You most likely have an xvid encoded movie judging by the name of the file. Though you really shouldnt install any codecs just by the name of the movie.(Kind of like that never judge a book by its cover thing)
    When you run your movie through GSPOT and get a FourCC of XVID then you could either:

    Download an xvid codec
    Download FFDSHOW.

    Personally Id go with FFDSHOW.
