im trying to play a media file in windows media player but all i get is the sound! There should be video but i just get a blank screen while the sound plays.

Windows media player says its the ac3 codec that is required?? Is this what i need? If so where can i get it from as i cannot find it on a google search!

I believe AC3 is an Audio Codec, not Video - but the K-Lite pack suggested by Fruit Bat should do the trick.

What is the last three letters after the dot of the media file name?
