Well, there's probably your problem. Last I checked (which is,
admittedly, a long time ago, but given M$'s track record...), WMP
didn't support H.264 (A.K.A. AVC) natively. I see a "Nero Video
Decoder" in there, but is that the Nero H.264 decoder? It's been ages
since I've used Windows, so I'm genuinely unsure.
It's also possible that this was created with x264, an Open Sourced H.
264 encoder, which supports many features of the H.264 spec that many
commercial codecs, including Nero's and Apple's codecs, don't
support. You might want to make sure this isn't the case.
Another problem might be the set Display Width and Display Heights.
They're currently set for 16 and 9, respectively. My guess is that
the aspect ratio is 16:9, but those parameters shouldn't be set like
that. So, at the moment, looks like the decoder (if it's respecting
those two settings) is outputting to 16 pixels by 9 pixels. Remuxing
the file with a proper display resolution might fix it, assuming the
codec isn't your problem. I could be wrong, though.
