Problem with video playback

I'm trying to play a tv episode through the 'Videos' app on Windows 8, but it gives me the following error:

Can't play. Make sure your computer's sound and video cards are working and have the latest drivers, then try again.

0xc00d11d1 (0x80070241)
I'm running VMWare Fusion 5.0.1 with the guest tools installed.

Running dxdiag, it says it the video driver only supports DirectX 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3. Movie trailers play fine.

I've tried increasing the VRAM from 2MB to 32MB via the vmx file, to no avail.

Any help?
