What are codecs and where can I get them
Codec is short for Compressor-decompressor. Codecs are needed for encoding and decoding (playing) audio and video. You can try the following codecs:

DivX is an advanced digital media format. DivX lets you play, create and share digital video by turning bulky videos into lean, mean DivX files.

XP Codec Pack is one of the most completed codec packs which helps you to play all major audio and video formats. Some example are AC3 / DTS / MPEG Audio, VCD/SVCD/XCD, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-1/2 Layer III / MP3, MPEG-4,AVI subtitles, QuickTime and RealVideo support etc

FFDSHOW is a DirectShow decoding filter for decompressing DivX, XviD, WMV, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 movies. It uses libavcodec from ffmpeg project for video decompression, postprocessing code from mplayer to enhance visual quality of low bitrate movies, and is based on original DirectShow filter from XviD, which is GPL'ed educational implementation of MPEG4 encoder.

PlayFLV is a package that enables Fake Webcam to play FLV (Flash Video) files. This program installs and registers FLVSplitter and binds FLV files to Windows Media Player, enabling playback of FLV files by double-clicking them. The installer prompts to download and install ffdshow, required for movies in Flash 7 file format.

K-Lite Codec Pack is an other user friendly solution.
