As the others have told you, this is a problem with the Ligos codecs.
Here are steps to follow:
There are a couple of different fixes for this depending on what you
have installed on your system.
1. If you have Nero, update to the very latest version.
2. Unregistering the Ligos codecs (lmpgspl.ax, etc.). To do this, click
on the Start Orb and type "cmd.exe". Then right-click on Cmd and choose
Run As Administrator. You will see the cmd prompt. At the prompt, type:
regsvr32 /u lmpgsl.ax [enter]
You'll get a confirmation box saying the unregistration was successful.
Do this for every codec for which you get the error.
3. If after the unregistering you get an error that the codec can't be
found, log into an account with administrative privileges (you should
create at least one extra account like this for emergencies). Go to
Control Panel>Folder Options>View. Set the options to see all hidden
files. You'll get several *.ini files on the Desktop - ignore them
because you aren't going to use this account for anything but
emergencies - or you can go back to Folder Options and hide the
protected files when you're done.
Now go to C:\Windows\System32 and find the .dll for which you got the
error. Right-click on it and Rename to (ex.) lmpgsl.ax.bak. Log off and
go back to your regular account and see if you can play the movie file
by double-clicking on it now. You should not get the error any more.
