MPC-HC. It has the advantage that you don't have to install it like other players, and doesn't forcibly install video codecs (keeps your system clean with less chance of conflicts/crashing).

VLC is good for all files, but windows media player is best for basic audio files as it has the playlist on the right.

Actually .mkv and .flv is not played in wmp out of the box. I use shark 007's codec to play mkv in wmp. though I dont like flv to play in my monitor, it it is not online.

Try another player, like MPC-HC. The HW acceleration should help to decode 1080p videos.
