=======================================
The following article may be worth a look:

Alternative media players:

FWIW...it's always best if you create a System Restore
point before installing any software or updates.

Using Windows Vista System Restore

VLC Media Player

Media Player Classic

Apple Quicktime

And maybe it would be worth a try to download
and install one of the following free codec packs:

K-Lite Codec Pack (Full)

CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack)
