It says u may need to install a directshow decoder for this audio format in order to hear the soundtract of this file. where do i get this where can i download it?


The best all-in-one 'codec' package I've seen anywhere has to be the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack free download...use all it's recommended settings, and when installing it just check anywhere you see 'Select All' for video AND audio types...plus make sure you check 'Windows Media Player' as well as the default Windows player when that option comes up. It's surprising what you'll be able to view in any player once this package is installed. >>CLICK HERE

We cant plays our DVD on PDVD.Doesnt works our PDVD.It shows an error code while we trying to play a dvd by using PDVD.Code is 80040216


Read the thread from forum.cyberlink.com - Error 80040216 Power DVD!

There are many free DVD software you can use, why use Cyberlink 'buggy' software?

If you are on a Windows OS platform,
Here are some free Players eg. VLC Player, MPStar Player or Windows Media Player 11.
Download the codec package and install either "K-Lite Codec Pack or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack" from http://www.free-codecs.com/index.htm. With these you should be able to play most of the Audio and Video formats.

Hope it helps.
