Player is not important, Windows Media or anything else. All you need is 
Try to install FFDshow on Windows. To encode, use libavcodec and mpeg4.
You should get sane output and good quality. You also may try to use XviD,
search "xvid koepi" in google to get windows xvid codec installer.
XviD streams are also player with FFDshow.
