There are tons of free to use media players for Microsoft Windows users, available on the internet and much better than default media player. But Despite the fact, It has plenty of shortcomings, Majority of Windows users are accustomed to Windows Media Player.
For an example, Windows Media Player can’t play MP4, MKV and other famous audio and video formats. You have to install third party video codecs to play MKV, MP4 and other formats.
Windows 7, Windows 8 and other Windows editions aside, Even Windows 10 lacks MKV, MP4 and other codecs. Windows 10 users whenever try to play MKV, MP4 in Windows media player they get an error that Windows media player can’t play the file. As well as Sometimes You can hear audio, but can’t watch the video.

There are two ways to overcome this problem.
