Unable to play any video (1 Viewer)

I´m always getting a error
" Unable to play...
video codec: AVC
Audio codec: AAC LC"

I think this is not related to MP itself because I had to delete some intro video files to be able to play Civilization 5
Any help?

    Hello :)

    First, your MovingPictures database appears to be corrupt:
    [2015-10-26 20:11:21,376] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - SQLiteClient: Closing database: movingpictures.db3
    [2015-10-26 20:11:21,378] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - SQLiteClient: Closing database:

    Please fix that according to the instructions here:

    Second, your video codec preferences appear to be unset:
    [2015-10-26 20:12:16,835] [Error ] [MPMain ] [ERROR] - Failed filter: not found
    This is a problem because when MP tries to fall back to using the default system codec, the following error occurs:
