no it wouldn't.
it's all the same format(mpeg2).
installing a dvd player like power dvd or windvd will install the codec,but they're not free.
never tried it,but you can http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=MPEG2_Codec
i do agree with the statement saying not to use wmp.the player doesn't like the codec.it will crash the player and you have close the .exe by ctrl+alt+delete
