    Downloaded a .wmv today from Sky, it won't play, says missing audio codec.
    Going to Web help says the missing codec is WM audio 9 standard (161). At
    WMplugins.com this can only be downloaded for Windows 98, ME and 2000. I am
    running WM11 on XP Service Pack 2. I have no problem playing other wmv, wma,
    mp3. The file is an episode of Lost from Series 3, so its not an old file.
    Any ideas where I can get this codec or equivalent for XP/WM11?

    Please ignore this 'advice'. The K-Lite Codec Pack is far from
    wonderful; it generally causes more problems than it solves.

    A better idea would be to install the FFDShow codec:
