I'm trying to playback an mpg video file with WM9, and it gives error "error downloading codec". The video and audio is very choppy. The file was recorded from ATI All-in-wonder capture with mpg2 format. Any ideas what might be the problem?

WMP won't download any MPEG2 codecs- http://www.nwlink.com/~zachd/pss/pss.html#mpeg2

I have winxp running media player version 8. When i try playing mpg and mpeg files, the total time of the clip displayed in the bottom right is incorrect and much shorter than the clip actually is. The clips play normally for the first 30 seconds or so, and then, when the slider reaches the end, the sound continues, but the video stops. I am 99% sure that this is a codec problem, because i can play the clips across my LAN on my laptop, also running XP. I have tried to delete and re-install the codecs, but when i remove them (using audio advanced properties and video codecs) they just reappear. PLEASE could someone help me with this one? I can also play the clips normally using real player, but i would prefer to use media player for everything.
