Look into the conditions:

  1. You are trying to play a file format or the codec which is not supported by Windows Media Player
  2. One or more Windows Media Player files are lost or corrupted
  3. You are using a damaged media file
  4. You are using a remote Desktop and it is not configured to play Video.
