Probably a missing codec. Have you downloaded the Ffdshow codec pack?

Hope this helps,

Always use VLC. you can't find any other app which you can open ANY VİDEO FİLE.
download free codec packs. ACE CODEC PACK , VİSTA CODEC PACK (this one is specifically for WMP) and my favorite one K-LİTE PACK.

you might want to check the free-codecs.com

if you're interested multimedia you might wanna equip with a codec (video codecs+quicktime+realmedia AND WEB PLAYERS of these formats) and VLC player

I have downlode 2 movies but it is not play sume code problam pls hilp me


If you are trying to use Windows Media Player it's no wonder you can't watch them or you are having codec problems. Open up internet explorer and go to google. In the google search box type in "Download VLC Player". Look at the search results and look for www.videolan.org/vlc to download the player. VLC is free open source and it is a much better player with all the drivers and codec. It runs things that windows media player has a problem playing. Once you download and install it, go to the movie file you downloaded and Right Click on it and select the Open With option. If you don't see VLC listed in the Open With options, choose the option at the bottom that says Choose Program. Look for VLC in the program list. Choose VLC to play the movie and see what happens.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook running WindowsXP with a DVD-RW/CD-RW drive. When I insert a DVD to play or to copy it won't work, it tells me I need a DVD decoder. How can I get one to solve this...


Hi,
Just download FFDShow and VLC MEDIA PLAYER.
Its extremely rare with this combination, to find a movie that wouldn't play,

get FFDShow here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5550&s=50
with ffdshow all you need to do is to run the setup file and click next repeatedly untill the setup is complete, and then just finish it, close it and its done, works on the background when movies are played.

vlc media player - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

After you got these two installed, you should be able to play most if not all of the movies out there.


open vlc media player and then click File, dvd movie.
