Thanks for the reply and help...

I do receive an error, this is what it states:

__________________________________________________ __
BS.Player cannot play the media file.
You don't have necessary codec installed, file may damaged or not media file.

Click 'Find codec' to try to find codec.
__________________________________________________ __

Clicking on "find codec" only brings up the screen I saw during the installation regarding the locally installed codecs. it does indicate "installed" for all of them.

I went into Menu>Options>Preferences>General;File Types and all types are being associated.

Further down under ffdshow properties there are no options such as those you suggested.

If yes, please post here that message.

The difference between the two files it's not in size but in filters requiered to be able to play the files. First file needs an MKV splitter, an AVC decoder and an AAC decoder, while the second one require a simple MPEG4 decoder and an MP3 decoder.
If you allowed internal filters to be installed, you should check in:
-ffdshow video options that it is set to decode H264/x264/AVC
-ffdshow audio options that is set to decode AAC
