         Can't include codecs because they are illegal in the USA. So to 
solve this you have to get it from a source outside of the USA.

     I have used VLC for many years because it works better than any of 
the others. Now they are packing all the drivers they can for almost all 
types of video and music. It is very nice! I know they could do the same 
thing for Movie Player. And what you d/l for VLC is used by Movie Player
