    Donwload the codec pack developed by an admin of this board and install it.

    Details in this thread.

    Once you've done that, I'm sure that you'll be able to watch it :)

    What the feck!?

    I think maybe something has happened with your file association preferences but I really can't tell from what you've written. If the codec pack installed correctly, the files will play in media player.

    Open WMP and drag and drop a file into its screen. See if it works.

    Ok, I think there are some codec conflicts on your system. It didn't seem like you'd have the k-lite codec pack on there but maybe ya did.

    You need to uninstall all elements of the codec packs you've got installed at the moment, and then reinstall the K-lite mega codec pack.

    Go to your control panal > add remove programs > uninstall any and all entries for k-lite codec and mega codec pack.


    After that's done, clean your registry with something like CCleaner and reinstall the codec pack, using the default settings it offers.

    Hopefully, that should sort it out.
