Desktop Video/Acer A210 does not play videos


I have an Acer iCONIA A210 and it will not play any videos other than from Youtube.
Every time I try to play a video, all that comes up is a small square blue box with a question mark in it.
I installed Real player and FLV player but neither work.

Good Morning,

Try installing this file -

Then reboot and try playing a video file you have on your computer (download one from YouTube if you like) you can find some cool ones here -

Let me know if that solved it please.

Desktop Video
