Computer does not want to play a video. is asking for a DVD decoder.


Certain software that plays media require a DVD decoder that you can purchase. You can also go to www.snapfiles.com, look at the freeware tab and you may be able to find a DVD player program that will play your DVD.

Why is the lap top telling me i need a decoder to watch a movie


DVDs are one of the most popular types of media sold today. They hold feature length motion pictures, videos, audio and countless other types of media such as software and data. DVD's not only can be played in stand alone DVD players, but also most computers have a DVD drive. If a DVD includes media such as a feature length motion picture, this media has been encoded and sometimes compressed. In order for this type of DVD to be played on a computer's DVD drive, the data on the DVD must first be decoded; this is done with computer software which are know as Decoder. It should be noted that there are many types of DVD formats, hence several types of encoder programs to make a DVD accessible to computer users.

DVD's encode data in a variety of ways. For instance Dolby Digital data requires a Dolby Digital decoder. The same is true with DTS (Digital Theater System). These are both audio data that require decoding, but many video images stored on a DVD also require decoding including
MPEG (this is the most popular video format for DVD's). It should be noted that in order to play a standard DVD, the DVD player is not enough, you also need the software to decode the images making the data fully functional.

Hope this Explanation will help you,,,,,,

Cheers!!!!!

Dvd decoder not installedhow can i install it??need a answer immediately


If it's about you not being able to play DVD's with your media player, it's because you need a media player capable of doing that - i use  http://www.videolan.org/vlc/  .
Click on Windows, in the next window select the closest location to you, select Save (nor Run) and wait for it to completely download, close the browser and launch the installer, set it as your default media player. 
When the install is finished just play whatever you want with it.

My computer wont let me watch movies now. it keeps saying something about my dvd decoder wasnt installed.


if you bought the computer new or the DVD drive new , you whould have got a CD with it , most probably with something like WinDVD or something , if you have the specific CD with DVD software on it install it , as it will enable you to watch DVD's using Windows media player etc..

if you bought the computer second hand etc.. and or cant find the cd's a free solution is to download VLC media player (Download here) the only disadvantage about using this free solution is that you will have to play the DVD's through VLC you wont be able to use windows media player etc. to play DVD's as VLC does not require decoder software to play DVD's

otherwise you can purchase software such as WinDVD and this will enable you to play using your media player of choice.

Thanks!
