Media player loses ability to play certain filetypes.

Windows media player (v11 on Win7?) seems to have lost the ability to play video files that used to play fine - WMV's seem completely off limits and AVI's are bit hit and miss.

I seem to be having trouble also with .mpg or .mpeg filetypes (don't know which!).

Media player always reports a codec problem but I can't see a way to reinstall these.

I've tried to get around the problem by using DIVX or VLC but both seem sluggish in operation compared to WMP and both suffer from similar problems anyway.

Any advice on how to get WMP playing all the video's it once did?

Caveman - already tried Divx and no joy.

Stiggy - that looks just the ticket - cheers.
