W60 video in windows media player

Is it possible to get this to work? I can play back in VLC and the video is really good. I would like to use media player, too, I've tried a few codec packs but no luck.

I really dislike Windows Media Player.

I am not familiar with the recording format of the W60. Is it DivX?

You can obtain an excellent suite of decoders from here:

It enables Windows Media Player, Windows Media Centre, etc to play pretty much anything.

Do you know if this works with the w60 file format? I've just spent a few minutes without success but will persevere if it does actually work

I have no idea what video format the W60 really uses, but it is NOT DiVX or XViD, according to windows media "file properties", it's using a DV codec (barely compressed AVI similar to DV cams).

The video files the W60 produces are MASSIVE.

K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. There's no format that it doesn't support.
First deinstall all previous codecs you have and than install K-Lite. It's playing EVERYTHING, and all of that in Windows Media Player
