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. Unregister 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. Go to Control
Panel>Folder Options>View. Set the options to see all hidden files.
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.
