i use clipconverter.cc so i know more about this exact issue than i previously thought it did. i usually download in avi (because it's the most reliable and universal format) and the videos do not open with windows media player (or rather they play the sound but not the pics), i also find when using youtube downloaded (via clipconverter) videos in blender(a cgi program) the sound works there but not always the pictures. i can't be sure why clipconverter videos won't work in mediaplayer but i know this effect happens with other avi videos on my computer as well (some which i have rendered out from blender) but avi videos from my camera still play fine in mediaplayer. i'm guessing it must be something to do with the coding inside the avi video (PAL,NTSC,etc) and that some of these won't work in windows mediaplayer. if i knew more about details of how video formats really work i could find a reason but using vlc to play them should atleast give a solution, if you can get the converter function inside vlc to work then you could convert the videos to a type of avi file the windows can play properly. as for your use of clipconverter you didn't by an chance download the download manager they sometimes offer on the video download page, rumours say it is adware/spyware/malware so best to uncheck that offer, it goes away after unchecking once or twice. also with your use of clipconverter it's good for video download from youtube but quite unnecessary for format conversions, if you already have another means of youtube download then you needn't use it, if that other means doesn't work then get vlc and you should be able to make the clipconverter vids function.
