To play WMV, AVI format in Windows PC or Windows based devices, Windows Media Player is with no doubt the best media player. It has many unmatchable features. It supports local playback, streaming playback with multicast streams and progressive downloads.

This maybe due to its inner codec is not recognizable for your Windows Media Player. You can check and install the lastest WMP version to troubleshoot the problem, or search some codec pack like K-lite codecs
