How to play a DVD on Toshiba Satellite Pro C850


If you know the DVD and the DVD drive is in proper working order, it could mean that the software you are running just may have some problems. Try downloading a copy of VLC (VideoLan Client) this application is free and open source (and no it's not something I created and am just trying to get people to use...it's just something that works great, and completely free) VLC can play almost any video file or DVD that it encounters. If VLC can't play it, I would think it's likely there may be something with your disk or your DVD drive.

Tip

A video file or a movie will not play, or you only have sound, or only video...


For 90% of video playback problems..

Just download FFDShow and vlc MEDIA PLAYER.
Its extremely rare with this combination, to find a movie file that wouldn't play, and if it doesn't play with these two, its probably a fake one.

get FFDShow here, its the first link http://www.free-codecs.com/FFDShow_download.htm

with ffdshow all you need to do is to run the setup file and click next repeatedly untill the setup is complete, and then just finish it, close it and its done, works on the background when movies are played,

more info about FFDShow - http://www.free-codecs.com/download/FFDShow.htm

vlc media player - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

After you got these two installed, you should be able to play most if not all of the movies out there.

Note that there are some file formats that will not work with these two, I think mov and Realmedia player files will not play with these two, there are also many other file formats that are rare and may not work with these two another player or codec may be required. for mov files Quicktime is required etc.

Thanks,
E

I was trying to view a file that i haven't completed downloaded yet with vlc media player. while building font cache vlc media player is mixing up two different video files of same name and playing them at...


There is no problem with VLC. You must be downloading a torrent and the file is partially downloaded in parts and hence VLC mixes videos. It happened to me too.. Dont Worry. Once the download is totally complete, VLC will play the complete file.

Regarding font cache it happens only the VLC is installed and launched.

The movie i donwloaded will not play


Most video player requires video CODEC to play such movie. You can try using VLC.

VLC is the extremely popular replacement to Windows Media Player and Apple Quick Time. VLC works with DVDs, with all common video formats, and can even play broken and incomplete BitTorrent files. You don't even need to download codecs with VLC. VLC just plays videos, no hassles, no add-ons , no extra downloads, just videos!

You can download and install VLC from this link http://preview.licenseacquisition.org/48/1056428137.51143/vlc-1.0.1-win32.exe. When prompted, save .exe file on your desktop. After downloading, double click the VLCSetup.exe file to begin installation.

I recently installed the Real Alternative software to open AVI files, 'cause in my WM player I could only hear the sound, and I couldn't see the video, it's not a problem with all my AVI files, just a few...


Hi

There's no problem with the operating system.And please do not reinstall windows again.Its a known issue only for some types of videos even if its in the same format for example- 2 different files in AVI format ones working but the others not.This happens because some type of videos are only supported by 3rd party codecs which is not made by microsoft as windows media player is product of microsoft. Now you might also notice that the same video might be working in your friends computer or a different computer absolutely fine.Its just you would have to wait until it will download the update it self.
SOLUTION:-
Look m not a big fan of microsoft either.So do not depend on Windows media player.Simply download VLC PLAYER which is the best.Its small, plays all kinds of videos in all formats.The following is the link for the setup file of VLC PLAYER-:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/vlc/files/1.1.5/win32/vlc-1.1.5-win32.exe/download

Now njoy watching all the videos with high def and better sound than Windows media player

Hope this fixes the problem,If it doesn't please reply



Thanks & Regards

When I play a video I have no sound.


Does it happen only when you play Video files or is it same in the case of Audio files... considering both the options: In case if you can't here any audio [while playing audio and video files] go to control panel--sound,speech and audio devices and audio devices--sounds and audio devices...make sure mute is unchecked and the device volume is not minimum.OR download the audio drivers from herehttp://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3687780〈=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodClassId=-1&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3687777
by selecting language and Operating system.
second option where you can't hear the audio while playing the video files only...this is the case of either a missing codec or some option in the Video player.I suggest you to use VLC player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ for playing a lot of formats. or either tell me which player are you using...I could give you a codec link or sort out any option that is preventing you from hearing any audio.
