Any error message? Likely a missing video codec.

What about giving a try to a portable standalone player?

I would fix it by migrating away from M$ programs and downloading an alternative like PotPlayer or MPC-HC

please elaborate more detail on your issue (what kind of media file do you play, system information, etc.)

 

by right, installing a codec pack and/or updating your video drivers should eliminate the issue.

 

and btw, why would use Windows Media Player while you have much better alternatives such as VLC, K-Lite and so on?

About black screen issue on your video and since you are installing k-lite codec (but you didn't explain what version did you use), some answers might be found here:

 

https://codecguide.com/faq_playback_issues.htm#item48

https://codecguide.com/faq_playback_issues.htm#item59

https://codecguide.com/faq_display_issues.htm#item5

https://codecguide.com/faq_mpc.htm#item7

https://codecguide.com/faq_mpc.htm#item28

https://codecguide.com/faq_mpc.htm#item30

 

Also, please check your codec and filters settings under Configuration and Codec & Filter Management on Codec Tweak Tool.

 

If it still doesn't answer your question, post your thread on K-Lite's dedicated forum instead (register on that forum first before posting). Be sure to put all complete details you have.

And with regards to your reply and my original question, you didn't specify whether your video drivers are updated or not and also the details of the video file itself you didn't elaborate (file format, codec, etc.). The more you elaborate, the better the clarification.

When on windows, standalone players like mpc-hc, zoomplayer, etc. play whatever file.

No codec pack here (do a search for "DO NOT INSTALL CODEC PACKS!"), only using LAVFilters (https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=156191 is one of the links).

Did not use it for years, but there was a tool called gspot to define the required codecs to play a media file (http://www.headbands.com/gspot/).

black screen with audio usually means an issue with hardware accelerated decoding. Try update graphics driver to latest.
