Let's do a test. Download Firefox, install it. Now download Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin and install it. Open Firefox and try to watch the videos you could not.

Steps:

1 - uninstall any codec package;

2 - Click on Start button, and open Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features.
Click on Turn Windows features on or off in the left pane.
Expand Media Features.
Uncheck (untick) check box for Windows Media Player.
Click Yes to continue when prompted with dialog box saying:
The following Windows features will also be turned off because they are dependent on Windows Media Player. Do you want to continue?

"Windows Media Center
Other Windows features and programs installed on your computer might also be affected, including default settings."

Click OK to remove WMP and WMC, and quit.
Restart computer.

Quote:
Go to %ProgramFiles% (and %ProgramFiles(x86)% for 64-bit OS) folder, and delete the Windows Media Player folder.


To re-install Windows Media Player and/or Windows Media Center again, follow these steps:

Open Turn Windows features on or off again.
Check (tick) the checkbox for Windows Media Player and/or Windows Media Center.
Restart computer.
Windows Media Player 12 will be reinstate and reset. Launch Windows Media Player, and re-initialize the program.

Let us know the results.
