It is definitely a codec problem. It can be easily solved by installing any new codec pack from here for example.
As to choosing of exact codecs I'd recommend you to download K-Lite Codec Pack.

If the above doesn't work, visit http://www.free-codecs.com/index.htm. I've tried most of the codec files on that website and from my experience i believe Matroska Pack is the most compact and verstaile codec pack out there. Hope this helps. Good Luck
