Well open MPC and drop the file into the window.

The extension is probably not associated with mpc and i don't think xp has built-in support for mp4.

I don't think WLM plays MP4 natively, in XP, at least. Try VLC?

MPC-HC does nothing...

divx+ and vlc says "the above file name is invalid".

Must be corrupted file, Scan the file system for errors.

Is the filename and/or folder path really long? e.g. rename the file, erase whatever it's called, & just call it "this.mp4" & see if that plays.

Likewise, try moving your newly-renamed .mp4 file up a few directories (e.g. move the file into the C:\ folder) & try to play the file from there.

If you have a nVidia card and use DVXA to play the file try to use software ffmpeg instead.

I dunno why but i just upgraded my card from a 6950 to a 670 and i can't play mp4 using hardware acceleration anyone in mpc-hc and powerdvd.
