Solved Windows 7 video player problems Tags: Windows 7 Video Last response: August 12, 2012 1:09 AM in Windows 7 Share Pedrooooomr August 5, 2012 12:22:19 AM I have a Nikon digital camera and Windows 7 will not play back video from it. I get an error message which reads. Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file. It used to work fine when I had Vista. Your suggestions?
