You have given us almost no information with which to help you. Since we aren't mind readers we don't know how you actually tried to play it. I'll take a stab in the dark at the most common problem that we see. Through much trial and error, tested upon countless newbies we have found this simple and quick solution that will fix at least 98% of all problems that we see. I expect it will work on your problem as well.

Uninstall all your codecs. Trust me. All of them:
Uninstall DivX.
Uninstall XviD.
Uninstall ffdshow.
Especially uninstall any Codec packs, They are Evil!

Download and install ffdshow. You'll find it listed as [Level 1] on the Media Configuration Guide.

After you have done this you should be able to play videos with pretty much any video player, but if you are still having trouble, then try using Media Player Classic.

There's not that fine a line between willing suspension of disbelief and something just being stupid.

This post belongs into the Playback Help Forum but nevermind ^_^

Step1: Uninstall all of your codecs
Step2: Go here and download ffdshow-alpha
Step3: Install the mkv codec.
Step4: Playback with Medial Player Classic (mkv files) or other players (other files than mkv)
Step5: Have fun

Step 3-5 are optional. Step 1-2 will be all you need for most animes.

EDIT: Bah, NSW...
There is a little known provision in the Forum Rules that explicitly allows a moderator to remove any signature image that they believe to be inappropriate for any reason. That did not happen in this case because _Sin_ is so boring that he never even had a signature to remove anyway. So why is this text here? To attract attention of course - isn't that what a signature is for?
You can still find my Azureus Download Guide here

By all means, make sure to read this.
