Question about Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop
dell 8400 desk top..playing dvds in wmp 11 have video but no audio.
In the past this has not been a problem. when playing cds in the same
dvdrom drive the audio is ok and all the coumputer sounds are ok
the problem seems to be only when i play a dvd....HELP.
I had also the same problem with WMP11.
I have downloaded and installed the codec pack "FFDShow-mpeg4" from the link, in "free-codecs.com"
The problem is solved.
While installing, enable all required extensions like MPEG1 MPEG2 etc.

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.
