    So, I downloaded the new WMP 10, however, it won't let me view some mpeg files. I sent the same files I'm trying to view to like 5 of my friends, and they can view them all fine. I went to the Windows site to downloaded the "codec pack" which I'm assuming is what I need to do. It said to enter a 25 digit key from my COA...which I don't seem to have anymore. There MUST be another way to get the codec, isn't there? All I wanna do is watch my movies!

    You've encountered error message C00D10D1 while using Windows Media Player. The following information might help you troubleshoot the issue.



    Codec is missing

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file (or cannot play either the audio or video portion of the file) because a required codec is not installed on your computer.

    The missing codec might be available to download from the Internet. To search for the codec, go to the WMPlugins.com Web site.



    There's the message I am getting, when I try and load the video, it says "You are missing codec" or something...I click "Web Help" and it brings me there.

    Run a google search for the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. It should have every codec you should ever need. It also comes with an older version of Media Player Classic that will play almost anything.

    You can also look for a program (I foget the name) which can tell you what codec movie files use.
