Okay, I downloaded the Haali Media Splitter and that seems to allow it to play, however. When I try to change the program it opens with from Winamp to WMP, the icon on the file doesn't change...also WMP still prompts me that it doesn't recognize the file format, do I want to play? I could ignore it yes, but with these codecs, shouldn't it stop giving me that message?
EDIT: Okay, so I found out how to rid myself of the winamp associate through deleting it via Tools > Folder Options > File Types and creating my own for WMP. The extension issue still remains...so is there a way to MAKE wmp recognize the mp4 format or should I just tell it to ignore?
EDIT#2: UGH, every time I fix something, I find another problem. Without my codec pack, generating video thumbnails causes explorer to crash. I think I'm just going to suck it up and deal w/ the codec pack, cause seriously...I'm sick of fixing issues as soon as I fix a previous one. It's annoying as hello. I'll just install only the needed codecs instead of the FULL pack or something.
Thank you for all your help.
