Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Others may have different codec packs, I would just download VLC. It plays everything I have asked of it and it's free.

and if you regularly refresh it (in my case once a month) all codecs are updated and you should never have a problem with it.
Only bad torrents affect and even then it has a brilliant auto fix/repair facility

I agree with howelljsche vlc is probably the best. And who does not love free stuff.

I use k-lite mega codec pack and divx codecs, I use windows media player and media player classic, don't seem to have no probs with the above codecs, and with k-lite mega codec pack you get media player classic with it.
