Download the proper codecs or a program that can do everything like VLC.

What ever you do do NOT install any codec packs like klite they are very bad! Download and install mpc hc http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/ and you will have a player that can play most anything you have.

..k-lite is bad? why?
iirc the mpc-hc will still need codecs...
if k-lite isnt an option, then there is cccp. miro is another all-in-one player like vlc.

If you're going to say pretty much the same thing I did, at least don't link him garbage codecs. Klite is filled with spam/garbage for noobies who don't know what to select.

what spam/garbage (by spam/garbage i mean virus, spyware, any kind of malware etc) is klite filled with? i deselect the ones i don't need and keep very tight leash on what is installed on my pc. never had any issues with spam.
as for similarity, i didn't see your post until i hit submit.
if moderator asks, i'll remove the link to klite.

That would be incorrect mpc hc has all the codecs it needs built in. I have 12tb of video and audio and have not needed any codecs installed
to handle my media. I have seen a lot of system with crashing problems and removing these coded packs have fixed the problem
in a lot of cases. The way I see it if you do.not need do not install it. Really the only thing you might need would be ffdshow if you need to
bit stream HD audio though HDMI.
