this is the WaveFormat or FourCC identifier of the codec

I am running Windows Vista on my computer and if I am trying to play any video in the Windows Media Player 11 then I am getting an error that says "This is the WaveFormat or FourCC identifier of the codec". Can anyone tell me how do I fix this problem. Thanks for any kind of help in advance.

I think that you have not installed some codec that is required to play the video and for that you need to download and install some codec packs from the fourcc website on your computer. That will definitely help you out.

RE: "2" (this is the WaveFormat or FourCC identifier of the codec)

You just need to download the QuickTime Player which will be able to play every type of video file formats on your pc. This software is fully compatible with the H.264 standard, to obtain, at a rate equivalent to a much cleaner picture with the codecs so far. The audio portion is not forgotten since QuickTime can handle flows composed of 24 channels as well.

Better than quicktime is the VLC Player. It is a famous open source media player and as a reminder, this free software can play almost all audio and video formats and network streams proposed for WebTV, all without having to download anything else. This software fixes many playback issues - especially for Blu-Ray, DVD, HLS, OGG and MKV - and various security vulnerabilities.
