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!!!!!

Can you tell me why I can't play dvds on my laptop please?


To ply DVDs you will need a DVD decoder. Some operating systems comes with their own decoder already, for example Windows Vistal Ultimate has Media Center. If you are using windows you can fetch a decoder from the microsoft website http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx

Dvd player not working on desktop computer


If the problem is that it just wont play or recognize DVD movie but recognizes CD then you may need to download a DVD decoder.

Windows Media Player ( depends on the version) doesn't come with DVD decoders so you may have to download it OR :

You can download WinDVD here.
