Depends what "video decoder" you need. There's at least a dozen of the things.

Where can I download a Video Decoder (preferably free) compatible with Windows XP (media player 11)?

I have no idea. Originally i had to reinstall windows xp. then i upgraded from mediaplayer 9 to 11. Then when i put in dvd to load; a message appears: "need dvd decoder compatible with windows xp". So I went to microsoft help and they only have dvd (video) decoders that they charge money for to download that are compatible with windows xp. Well anyway i downloaded for free the V-Lan Media Player which works fine. But i am sure that sooner or later i will need to use the Windows MediaPlayer. There has to be a FREE dvd (video) decoder somewhere to dowload that is compatible with my system. And what happened to the decoder when i re-installed Windows xp after my computer had crashed? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Ideally you need software such as PowerDVD which comes with the codec you need which is then transferable automatically to Media Player.

But having said that, this might help:
