Default need windows media player and movie maker fix

Videos in these 2 programs do not play correctly, in media player the video picture gets behind the sound and movie maker just gets all glitchy when working with movie clips.

VLC is the greatest video player so simple and yet works flawlessly and can play almost any format.......

Your download might have been corrupted. VLC shouldnt do that.
Try downloading it again.
