    You need the correct codecs to play the media files.

    Visit this site: http://www.codecguide.com/

    Choose whichever codec guide that suits you best. I use the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack since it contains codecs of xvid, divx, 3ivx, quicktime, real media, and other helpful goodies that media freaks crave. Don't install multiple codec packs that are made by different people, as you may cause crashes to your comp....
