Whenever I try to run some of my video files on windows media player  I get a small window with the following message "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. One or more codecs required to play the file could not be found."  How can I fix this?

Not much to go on, as you don't say which videofile format you are trying to play, on which Media Player version etc.

But check http://pcf.mundayweb.com/index.php?view=130 for some links to codec sites.

Avi needs the DivX and Xvid codecs, see link above for those.
Also, check out Microsoft's Windows Media codecs and read this link how to get them in the player itself.

I already have DivX, and I recently updated it by using the update feature.  Would that also update the codecs? If so, it's not working still.  Also, the "Microsoft Windows Media codecs" link above directs me to a page entitled "Windows Media Encoder 9 Series."  I am not sure if that will matter since I am using Windows Media Player 10.  Sorry for not having specified all this earlier.

New info:
I have no idea why, but DivX will now play some of the files I could not before. However, Windows Media Player will still not play them, although it use to be able to play them.

The Windows Media Codecs link I gave will point to the 9 series and above. So they are perfectly fine for your Media Player.
