There's always a workaround for stuff like this. Windows Media Player needs to get with the times and stop being so restrictive.

Unfortunately it's not as simple as them being restrictive. The licenses to many codecs are owned by other groups/companies and Microsoft cannot legally include them with the OS or player unless it licenses them. Easier for them to stand back and let the user deal with it if needed instead.

Even when installing a Linux Distro you usually have to install "free" codecs from restricted packages and such to get the codec libraries.
