Hi dinshan,
The easiest solution is to install a program called VLC media player.  This is a program similar to winamp, or windows media player, except that it has additional support for other media file types like .mp4
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Download the correct version for your operating system, follow the install guidelines, then run the program and open the mp4 file saved on your harddrive.
Thanks, and don't forget to vote/rate.
