http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

when installing, click on all the file types and install, and it should play the dvd.
i personally would uninstall powerdvd as well, cos vlc plays just about anything i throw at it.
good luck

How To Install and Use VLC Media Player


VLC media player is a free open source media player. What makes it different from you average media player is that it is packed with built in codecs. This means that it natively supports many video files without the need to first find , download and install codecs.

To install VLC

Go to the VLC site and download the player for your operating system. Many different operating systems are supported including Windows , Mac OS X and various Linux distributions. Click HERE for the download page.

After you have selected your operating system , click on any of the downloads to start downloading VLC.

Now that you have downloaded VLC , open the download to start the installation. You may get a security warning to which you select "run".

Click next on the welcome page of the wizard , and then read the license and click I agree.

Now Select the installation method you would like. For the average user , the recommended installation will be sufficient and click next when ready.

Now select the installation directory. The default directory will be fine.

When ready , click Install and VLC media player will be installed and ready for use.

All your media files will now automatically have the VLC icon displayed on them and when double clicked , automatically play with VLC. Alternatively , a file to be played can be dragged into VLC player.

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 ;)

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook running WindowsXP with a DVD-RW/CD-RW drive. When I insert a DVD to play or to copy it won't work, it tells me I need a DVD decoder. How can I get one to solve this...


Hi,
Just download FFDShow and VLC MEDIA PLAYER.
Its extremely rare with this combination, to find a movie that wouldn't play,

get FFDShow here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5550&s=50
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.

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.


open vlc media player and then click File, dvd movie.

Cannot play dvds. says my Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer.


Chances are you need the proper codec to run the DVD. Software companies often write their own 'interpreter' software to read the format they use to encode videos/music files.

Trying doing a search on the internet for the type of file format Windows Media Player is trying to run, then look for the codec for that format. Unless the format is copyright protected, Microsoft should have the codec available on their website.
