Vista & WMP 11

Microsoft don't support all MP4 formats themselves: click here

Theres some trial and error involved as MP4 impementations vary but there's no reason it can't work with the right codecs installed - its just that an upgrade brings these issues out by clearing out codecs that we may have loaded unconsciously with various files/players in the past.
