    The easiest non-codec way to watch the video is to download GOM Player. It has all the 'codecs' you can get for wmp built in so you wont have to use wmp anymore. You can even uninstall wmp if you want becaus GOM Player is smaller. The link is below.

    VLC also brings its own codecs to the table, so you could use that as well. I'm always a bit wary of codec packs.
