    "cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer"

OR...If you have Win XP, their is a small DVD Codec specifically designed for Windows Media Player called "DVD Decoder Pak for Windows XP" the size is 1MB.

Decoder want let dvd play

The software technology used to decoded the format used by DVD's is owned, and has to be purchased in order to decode and playback the content. Hardware manufactures already have paid for this license for your "on-the-shelf-dvd player". You have another option... to download a DVD Player that includes a pre-licensed decoder.

Download this codec pack...

Then, open the program called "Media Player Classic" that the mentioned codec pack will install.
