Do you have your automatic updates on, Get online and update your drivers for your media player and your audio drivers. Also check in your device manager and see if you can upgrade your audio driver there, You will have to open windows media player and update that in the tools bar, if you need anymore help write back here, I would also suggest if your going to watch DVDs you should probably get ultimate DVD It comes with most Dvd players one of your friends may have one, or if you know anybody that has recently bought a new DVD Player for a desktop or laptop should have the Install DVD for ya. Hope this solves some of your problems. If not just come back here and let me know, I'll do my best to figure this out for you, Thanks

Im not an expert on this, but it sounds like a codex problem and you need updated codex software. You can get free stuff off the web but I wouldnt know where to look. Another option is to download another DVD player program to play the DVD instead of using WIndows Media. There are some free ones on the web, but I'd recommend spending 20 bucks or so on one so you dont get loaded down with adware.

Not able to watch DVD's or videos on your PC? No picture only audio?


Reason
If you're having a problem reading DVD's or video files on your PC the this is because you either don't have a media player installed on your system or that you don't have a recent or updated codec pack installed on your PC.

Codec update
Firstly lets get to the Codec pack. A Codec pack is a list of video decoding information that, when added to your systems codec library, reads and converts the code and instructions from the video clip to your video player. To be able to play new videos or DVD's you will need to have the latest Codec update available. You can get the latest codec pack here. All you have to do is click the Download [ K-Lite Codec Pack 6.9.0 Full ]. Once downloaded you will need to install it and you may need to reboot after the setup is complete. VLC Media Player comes with Windows Media Player Classic and a host of audio/video decoders needed to play any video or audio file.

A great Video/Media Player
If you don't have a media/video player installed then you should try this great media application I found on the net. It's called VLC Media Player and it can literally play ANY media file, especially HD videos that Media Player Classic can't handle, and the best thing is that it is totally 100% FREE. It can be found on the VLC website here.

Extra
If you want to customise your VLC media player you can, just head over to the VLC skins department and get the skin pack.

PLAY HD CONTENT IN YOUR LOW PROCESSOR SPEED PC TOO.


Playing HD content in your pc which got low processing speed with lots of lagging and poor synchronization of audio and video, has become a great issue. Here is the solution for that problem.

Step 1 : Download Media Player Classic - Home Cinema from : http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/.

Step 2 : Download Core AVC Video Decoder from http://hotfile.com/dl/47202507/bb451dd/CoreAVC_H264_Video_Codec_Pro_v2.0.0.rar.html
Or
http://rapidshare.com/files/396874926/CoreAVC_H264_Video_Codec_Pro_v2.0.0.rar

Step 3 : Install Media Player Classic Home Cinema. And now install CoreAVC Video decoder.

Step 4 : Open Media Player Classic Home Cinema. And click VIEW->OPTION.

Step 5 : OPTION windows appears. Select "External Filters " and click "Add Filter" and then select "CoreAVC Video Decoder" from the list and click OK.

Step 6 : In that same "External Filters" window choose "prefer" radio button visible under " add filter" button. Click OK.

Step 7 : You are DONE. Now your Laptop/PC will play HD content easily. Sometimes this Decoder is supported by Windows Media Player and it will also play the HD content easily after you follow the above steps properly.

Note : In some cases, when you install the Core AVC Video Decoder, even Windows Media Player and other media player make use of it and you can run any kind of video files, even you can run FULL HD Videos in Windows Media Player Itself.

The Media Player Home Classic is preferred because, it buffers the whole video first (very fastly) and then it plays. Hence there is no lag in playing Videos.

Thank You.

Cannot play dvds. says my Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer.


Chances are you need the proper codec to run the DVD. Software companies often write their own 'interpreter' software to read the format they use to encode videos/music files.

Trying doing a search on the internet for the type of file format Windows Media Player is trying to run, then look for the codec for that format. Unless the format is copyright protected, Microsoft should have the codec available on their website.

DVD audio


You need to install a DVD decoder. Media player is horrible on it's own, but works great if you have other DVD decoding software. Try filehippo.com for the software.
