download the missing codecs, if it's an illegal movie, it's probably a divx codec...

www.divx.com (http://www.divx.com)

goto downloads and download the FREE codecs, they work perfectly fine, don't install any toolbars! If that doesn't fix the problem, it'll be a different codec, you'll have to find out which one, then get it online.

hope that helps
