Windows 7: Win7 cannot play mpeg2

Windows 7 beta
Win7 cannot play mpeg2

Win7 does play everything so far but it cannot play mpeg2 files.
I could convert them to xvid but I don't get why it won't play these files. dvd's are mpeg2 and they play fine.

Did I miss something?

I thougt Win7 used it's own codecs and won't let third party apps work with media center?

What codec pack did you use?

yes it should have mpeg2 supported...
according to this

Shark007's Codec Pack for Windows 7.I don't use Media Center either or that WMP junk.
