Answers :

Media player classic is the best solution for such type of videos. it is freely availabe on internet and free to download. use lattest codec for more complex videos.

You are likely missing a required codec to play the file. Try using G-spot to identify which codec you need, this will also tell you if it is installed on your machine. If it is not, of course you go find and install it and all will be well. If G-spot says you already have it installed, try importing the file into Quicktime or WMP, or renaming the extension, or just post again here and let's figure something else to try.
