Windows Media Player doesn't have built-in codec. CODEC is a program that converts a file from one format to another to be readible by the player. You can download and install it to your computer or you will use alternative player for movies which can be useful to you like VLC & MPlayer, tend to have internal codecs built inside them. You can download it for free!

Hi Godfrey,

There are several reasons why videos won’t play on Windows Media Player. First thing to look at is the file type. Windows Media Player supports the following file types: .wmv, .avi, .wm, .dvr-ms, .asf, .mpeg, .mpe, .mpg, .mp2, .m1v, and .mpv2. If the video file type you were trying to watch is not any of these file types, you may need to convert to either wmv or mpeg (the most common thing I do). There are freeware converters available for download that are 100% malware safe. Enjoy watching!
