The sound works fine except when you play dvds- it has no sound whatsoever


This is very likely a codec problem. A codec is a software component used with video and audio players that translates the electronic media file into something that can be displayed. Most of the time, the video codec will be out of date and you'll hear the audio but not see any video. You've got the reverse problem, obviously.


Unfortunately, Microsoft does not make this easy. Even the latest download of codecs from Microsoft doesn't necessarily update the Windows Media Player to play any DVD. You will need to do a codec search and download the latest. Last time I checked, 'download.com' had them available (this is CNet's download website). Good luck!

I go to yahoo.com try to open my dvdbut nothing happens


well yahoo.com is a search engine & emailing tool on the internet and

(not a dvd player) ! if you want to play your dvd use your windows media player with a codecs, or go to download.com and download the VLC player for your PC ok this should help you play your dvds not sure who told you to use yahoo.com to play dvds but was very wrong advice you can play web videos on the net through a web player like divx player or veoh player as well as the VLC player too but will play your dvds as well. the fixist good luck and have a nice day

Is windows media player able to play dvds? how daes it work? my laptop media can not play dvds.. i m feeling tired of it..


You may need codecs in order to play most DVD videos and other formats like DivX. Use this codec pack here. Select the Media Player Classic as the application while you were asked to provide it. K-Lite After that both of your players are ready to play DVDs (its better to have Media Player 11 in your system for a better experience) Enjoy your movie!
Thanks for contacting Fixya. Please rate the answer if it solves your issue.

When i down load a movie from a sd hc card the movie won't work on the window media player it say codec problem


You need a good codec pack. I would suggest KL codec pack full. You can download it for free from here. http://www.codecguide.com/

It will allow you to play just about any video format in windows media player. Note if you are using a 64 bit operating system you need the 64 bit codec pack. Don't forget to rate me.

How do I play MPEG recordings?


Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.
