Windows Media Player Error Message C00D11B1

I have some movie clips with the extension .wpl  I am unable to play them with quickplay or windows media player.  I recently downloaded Realtek High Definition Audio Driver version A.  This didn't help any.  Any ideas what type of upgrades I need so that I can play these movie clips?  When I try and play them I get the error message C00D11B1.  Is there a specific upgrade for this error message?

Hey Kent305,

Were the movie files downloaded from Internet?
Try these two methods. See whichever helps.

Method 1:

1. Open Windows Media Player
2. Go to Tools->Options->DVD->Advanced tab.
3. In the codecs section, scroll down to the codec of the video you are trying to play i.e .wpl  and see if it says "disabled" next to it in the "decoder" column.
4. If it does, select a decoder for the codec.

Method 2:
