Would like to insert/embed a video into a OneNote 2013 page and play the video using OneNote's video controls.  Currently *.wmv or *.mp4 files play but they are either distorted or just black and white.

If Media Player is installed then it uses Media Player codecs.

See : mediaplayercodecpack


Download and install a K-Lite Codec Pack
