I was able to address the issue simply by getting a new video player, which is the VLC Media Player!

If you wish so, you can make a donation to help those who are working this multimedia player. Any amount will do. It's purely voluntary.

After installing the software on your Windows laptop, you can make it the default application for running all of your video content.
