error downloading codec for mpg file in MediaPlayer9 running on W2



In attempting to play a .mpg file windows Media Player 9 goes to the
internet to download a codec and immediately returns an "error downloading
codec" message. It then proceeds to play the audio portion only. I adjusted
internet security to medium and disabled my firewall for a reattempt without

Looking at file properties in the player library while playing it shows an
audio codec but no video codec. Other MPG files seem to play ok

WMplugins offers nothing specific. I tried downloading a pay for codec but
it won't run on w2k Suggestions? And thanks in advance for your help.
