Try the k-light codec pack and just install in default settings, FileHippo

I tried the K lite program on filehippo when i ran install said i needed to install DirectX and directed me to download from Microsoft that which i did , then tried again to install K lite said i needed Directx so I re started but it keeps doing it. So won't install K Lite

Just get VLC player free and better no need to get codecs VLC PLAYER

eedcam that depends. Installed latest DivX player and comes with codecs and another bunch of features. Then WMP refused to play a type of AVI from my camera. Puzzled for a while then uninstalled the DivX codecs package and then WMP played the AVI files OK. Have informed DivX of problem and await an answer. Media Player Classic would also not play these files until I deleted the DivX codecs.

Run dxdiag and let it load. Click on the help tab to run the diagnostic tool. See if there are any problems showing.
