Instructions

The maximum supported resolution for Windows Media Player 7 is 1920 × 1080 pixels due to limitations with the software and DXVA decoding. Read more information from Microsoft

The recorded Zoom video of a shared screen cannot be played with WMP on Windows 7 if the resolution of the shared screen is higher than 1920x1080.
 
The recording resolution is based on the largest shared screen in the meeting or webinar, so even if video and screens were shared at lower resolutions, Windows Media Player may not be able to play the recording.
 
Please try another media player such as VLC or Quicktime
