    The K-lite codec pack should solve your problem
    Here's the link: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm

    If you do not want to go with that option, you can always try a different player.
    My preference is the kmplayer (one word). It plays almost any file format, and not just video, audio as well. Best of all, its free and much better than the VLC player (in my opinion).

    You can do some research on it before you try it out if you like.....

    Or you can often avoid the "find the right matching codecs" headache by simply using VideoLan VLC media player
    A cross-platform freeware media player released under a GNU license.,
