Windows Media Player

I just downloaded a video clip of Smallville, though when I try to run the Windows Media Player 8 does not get the codec and I only get the sound.

What should I do, I have tried to install the manual codec pack on the website though I don't think it worked.

Should I install Media Player 9 as I am using Win XP.

Try upgrade to Media Player 9 if you don't mind fairly large download (about 13MB I think)
