Windows Media Player Error Message Help

You've encountered an error message C00D10D1 while using Windows Media Player. The following information might help you troubleshoot the issue.
Codec is missing

Windows Media Player cannot play the file (or cannot play either the audio or video portion of the file) because the Microsoft MPEG-1 (50) codec is not installed on your computer.

The missing codec might be available to download from the Internet. To search for the Microsoft MPEG-1 (50) codec, see WMPlugins.com.

of course wmplugins.com says that it can not find the codec and that I should try looking for it.

any thoughts?  any other people experience this and then fix it.

I use Vista Codec Package.  It allows WMP11 to play pretty much everything:
