Thanks for the reply, Shy, and your most logical suggestion.
Of course as soon as i loaded up media player classic it was able to pick up the files just fine so I went back to wmp and realized what i was doing wrong.
For the benefit of other people who get stuck with stupid annoying little things like me: wmp first throws an error message about the unknown extension, which if you get past it, is followed by another about unknown codec. After you install the radlight codec and try to play a file, it will still tell you it doesn't know the extension and this is where i was getting stuck wrongly assuming that it can't play the file. But if you click "give it a go anyway" and tick the box "don't bs me anymore" it will actualy proceed to play the file using the installed filter. After that you can set up file association manually via folder options and all works well.
So a typical case of being not paying attention to error messages, which is what i usually get mad with my dad for, o well.
All the best with helping other codec noobs :shock:
