Have you tried to install the codec pack from microsoft?
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=507

If that doesn't work try the K-Lite codecs:

For this issue, I would normally recommend VLC, an excellent (free) product that I've been using for many years:

http://www.videolan.org/

It has all of the codecs built in. But since you said that you don't want to install a different player, I suggest the K-Lite Codec Pack:

But you really should consider installing VLC – it's terrific! Regards, Joe
