To make sure that your multimedia files are played without any kind of compatibility problem, the best thing you can do is get hold of an updated pack of codecs. Nimo Codec Pack is a collection of audio and video codecs to be able to play almost any multimedia file.
Codecs for all your multimedia files
In just over 7 MB you'll have all the versions of DivX, Lame MP3 Encoder ACM Codec or MPEG-Layer 3 Audio, amongst many others. However, we have to warn you that the latest version of this software was released back in 2014, therefore, you might be interested in downloading something a bit more up to date.
As a more updated alternative, we recommend you to get hold of K-Lite Codec Pack, capable of playing any format without any trouble, that updates un a regular basis and that comes along with a built-in multimedia player.
Finally, we have to point out that it's compatible with all Windows versions although it's true that since the arrival of Windows 10, this kind of program isn't so necessary.
