Missing codecs is the first thing I'd say but I dont use winamp so I dont know how it works.

If you have something like Powerdvd, or some DVD program, install it.

It may install the codecs for it.

power dvd doesnt paly it either.
it looks like its a codec problem, im trying one now....
i like to play most of my media through winamp.

ive got it going.
i looked through the winamp forums and they pointed to free-codecs.com too, download one and it works now.
