Windows Media Player error C00D10D1: unidentified codec


Recommended Posts

So none of my video files play audio on WMV or VLC. When I try to play thru WMV and press back I see the name of the file and on the left of it I see the icon for the audio with a red circle and a white X over the icon. When I click on that I get an option for Error Details, when I click on that I get the following message. "An audio codec is needed to play this file. To determine if this codec is available to download from the web, click Web Help." When I go to Web Help I get sent to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/codecfallbackand a page that says what the title of the topic says and doesn't offer any real solution. Any help I could get here?
