I cant play dvd. asking for codec application.

The Video Player you are using doesn't support the video file format you are trying to open. So go online for downloading the corresponding codec from that player itself. You have not specified what type of file you are trying to open...... But still I recommend you to use VideoLan VLC Media Player or Media Player Classic(K-Lite Codec Pack) for smooth performance which playing audios or videos because these players support most of the video and audio file formats. You can download the players from the following links:

  1. VLC Media Player
  2. Media Player Classic Homecinema

Hope this will work the best for you.

I cannot play my videos on my windows media player

What's the file format of the video that you're trying to play? Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing your Windows Media Player or even try to update it? If not, try to update it to see if the same problem will occur.

Or, you may download the VLC Media Player. It's a great media player because it supports almost all file formats.

Thank you!

What is MP3?

MP3 is the prefered method for music downloads.

MP3 is a file format on which music is created for CD downloads which can be played either, on a computer or an MP3 player (like the one on your cell phone.)

Your computer uses pre-installed software called a media player to play the MP3 songs on the CD download. If you have a Windows based PC for example (Windows XP, Vista etc.) when you click on the download - Windows Media Player will open and automatically start playing the songs.

So, you're safe to download the music in MP3 format. It will be of good sound quality.

How can I convert MSDVD files into movie files

Please download Third party software.
To convert video file formats to Windows Media Video (WMV) format, perform the following basic steps:
1 - In Windows Media Encoder, click the New Session taskbar button.
Click Convert a File, and then enter the following information in the New Session Wizard:

File Selection. Enter the name and path for the source (for example, AVI) and output (WMV) files.

Content Distribution. Choose how you plan to distribute your file. (Your choice here affects your choices on the next page.)

Encoding Options. Choose the level of quality you want for the audio and video by selecting how you will use the file. Keep in mind that the higher the quality, the higher the bit rate. If you select multiple-bit-rate audio or video, you can select more than one bit-rate check box.

Review your settings, and then click Finish.
On the taskbar, click the Start Encoding button and wait for the encoder to create the file or stream.
