Video taken on Xperia Z Premium will play/won't play on laptop



This problem is driving me nuts. I took 3 vids with the Xperia Z premium 2 days apart.


First one is a short one of 65MB and when I've tranferred it to my lap top, it plays just fine with Windows Media player or anything else. 


The second and third videos taken on the same phone, same settings, the very next day won't play on the laptop. One is 55MB and the other is 559MB. I've tried WMP, VLC, DIVX, WINAMP - nothing works. I do get a tiny bit of film appearing in a corner when I use DIVX for a few seconds, but 98% of the screen in blank. No sounds anywhere. 


I can't understand why one would play, and the others not when take the very next day. Driving me crazy and I have no idea how to fix it. Can anyone help?

Windows Media player is a weak and really poor player!

Check it out in kmplayer, media player classic, vlc player and....

It seems you doesn't have proper media codec.
