Here we go again... Another possibility emerges:
Microsoft Fix It - download the items below ( if the first does not work, download the second ):
1 - Mats_Run.WinMediaPlayer.exe
2 - Mats_Run.Codec.exe
Let us know the results.

Download and install VLC media player, and associate it with your video files and web browser. VLC is extremely robust at playing anything, has codecs for about anything. Screenshot attached showing VLC playing King Arthur movie, minimal controls view, but it can display full controls, and is highly configurable, and is open source (window in lower right of screenshot is command line terminal of Windows Powershell, not part of VLC)
VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

Why wont the media player or the media centre play MP4's?
Is there a good reason why MS don't equip either the media centre or the media player with the ability to play MP4's. I don't see why they can't play them,and surely it would be in MS's best interest if they could play them.
