Hi ScaR. Thanks you trying..  

I figured this out. This is a know issue with WMP11 in Vista. A sure shot resolution has not been developed or discovered till date. Here are a few Microsoft Articles which tell us that it is a Known issue&

Installing the Codecs is the correct step, however installing the graphic card update has resolved for many of my friends.

Cheers.... :)
