I was fishing in the BOI over the weekend and my son got some great footage of me catching a very respectable kingie.

Problem now is I can play some of the files but not the others.

These same file play perfectly on his laptop.

He's running windows 8 on an i7 quad core Asus (I think) and I've got Windows 7 Professional running on an i5 processor with 4Gb ram.

Could it be my graphics card?

Can't think what the problem might be.

Any ideas

Thanks for your help. WMP says it might not support the file type or not support the codec. What is really weird is that it plays some of the files but not the rest?
