    Well that is to be expected.. You can get the free FLV player to play the files.

    VLC Media Player handles most formats and, because it's open source, it doesn't collect information about what you're playing and send it to some remote website so that you can be fed adverts etc.; http://www.videolan.org/

    If you decide to try it make sure you get the version for Windows.
