Avi file created is not playing in WMP - gives error C00D11B1

I have a couple of programs that make .avi files to show nonlinear heat transfer over time. The programs used to work on my old computer; or at least my old computer would play the files. The m files are unchanged; so it can not be that. The error I get is C00D11B1.
I've come across some solutions: 1. Update WMP - no updates available 2. Uninstall then reinstall WMP - not yet attempted.
I wanted to know if anybody knew the reason for this before I began to extensively change either WMP or something else I might need to keep the same.
The avi files do not work on other programs like real player.

Your new system -- is it a 64 bit version of Windows, whereas your old system was 32 bit?
Also, are you now using a 64 bit version of MATLAB itself? The 64 bit version of MATLAB cannot use the codecs that are only available in 32 bit Windows.

Looks like _downgrade_ WMP is a solution.
