Question about PC Desktops

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?

Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card.


I know this probably doesn't qualify as a 'solution', but try using VLC to play your DVDs instead of Media Player. From what I understand, Media Player has a whole host of issues with DVD playback.

VLC is free and can be downloaded from here:

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.

Have video but no audio when playing dvd movies in wmp 11


Solution:
Well i could recommend another free video player instead of Windows Media Player 11. In this case, try installing Real Alternative, VLC, GoomPlayer all lf them support DVDs format.

I recommend Real Alternative over all 3 of them, to get it go here:
1) http://www.videohelp.com/tools/real_alternative and click on the "Download (mirror)".
2) after download is complete start the installation make sure to UNCHECK the following checkmarks during installation: Active X, and pluggin for firefox/opera/chrome/etc. you can leave the rest of the installation as default and click next all the time.
3) whenever you want to play a DVD close WMP 11 start Media Player Classic (installed during the real alternative installation, there should be a shourcut icon on your desktop for Real Player Classic now) on Media Player Classic go to File>Open DVD and you should have picture and sound.

Another extra side note of Real Alternative is that you can also play real media files (.rm, .rmvb) without having to install the nasty Real Media Player application

Hope this helps.
