Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Have just installed VLC media player and although it plays DVDs, I find the sound quality to be very poor - sound is jerky, stop/start, stacatto, and clearly not at all like the actual audio track of the DVD film. Visual appears to be fine.

This sounds like a memory related issue, could be that there is not enough memory for the audio card, or the information isn't being handled properly by the audio card. If your really gem on the program you could try uninstalling your audio card drivers and reinstalling them, and same way with the media player software. Try pulling the media software first, then pull the audio, then install the media without the audio, then install the audio if windows allows you to do that. Somewhere you have a conflict. You could also attempt to rotate your dma/irq settings, that could also do the trick. Most audio uses irq5 try 10 or some other one that's free?

Plays cds but not dvd


You need an MPEG-2 Decoder, it's a software program that will allow you to play DVDs, download VLC media player from www.videolan.org (free), It is kind of like windows media player but will allow you to play DVDs

Did download a VLC but Win Media Player says"


Did you try playing the dvd using VLC instead of windows media player?

VLC is a separate player for media files. It will not enable Win media player to play DVDs but WILL play DVDs very nicely on it's own.

If you still want to get win media player to work you might try installing this free codec pack : http://download.cnet.com/Media-Player-Codec-Pack/3000-13632_4-10749065.html

  • Download.
  • Install.
  • Restart computer.
Hopefully you should be good to go.

Good luck ;)

Unable to play dvd


DVD decoder does not come pre installed with windows. Download GOM or VLC media player and install it. Media player will then play DVDs. Also the two players I have mentioned play dvds.

For vlc copy and paste this link in internet explorer adress bar:
http://www.videolan.org/mirror-geo.php?file=vlc/1.0.1/win32/vlc-1.0.1-win32.exe



for gom do the same with this link:

VLC DVD player is jerky


What are your PC specs for RAM and CPU speed? VLC player is an amazing player. Are you saying this player is jerky on the same videos that another player was NOT jerky on? That seems very odd. I have yet to experience a jerky playback on VLC for movies (mostly HD).

Is your PC doing something else in the background while attempting to play the movies? Hit Control, Shift, Escape while playing a movie and look on the bottom at how much CPU % the PC uses before and during movie playback.
