Because it does not know which program to use to play it.

If you right click the file and select "Open with" then from the list of programs chose which of your movie player software you want to play it with, once you have selected the correct program (because you don't say what the extension is) place a check mark in the box at the bottom to "Always use this program to play this type of file" (or something similar to that)

Each time you then click on that type of file it will or should then start playing with the program you selected.
