    It could be a matter of codecs. First try another media player, preferably the versatile VLC.

    Glad to hear it, though not surprised. I'd stick to VLC if I were you. It plays practically everything, including broken files, partial downloads and even RARs. You can set it as the default media player, so that it starts playing when you double click a video file.

    Welcome to TechSpot by the way. :)
