Can you let me have a bit more information on the player you are using version etc? Also what files you are trying to play. It is probably just a setting that needs changing.

Video wo'nt play on XP


To play any media on PC needs codec to support it. If you are playing video on Windows Media Player, go to Tools - Options - then in opened dialogue of options go to DVD - Advanced . Here (Properties dialogue) you will find the supported codecs for different media. If the video file you are playing is not mentioned then the video won't play. So download the required codec to support the video file. A better option is install PowerDVD software which plays almost every video file. Download the old version software from the following link.

Name: Deluxe
Serial Key of Power dvd 7:

Also install real player.

Im a bit clueless but i have a downloaded movie on my pc and want to be able to put it on a disc, i have a compaq 6720s , does it have a burner inside it? what do i need to buy or install to be able to use...


I'm going to assume you are using a Windows operating system if you are using Windows media player. Windows media player does not come with the ability to burn or rip dvds. If your computer came with a dvd burner installed it should have also come with the burning software. You need to look for software labeled "Nero" or "Roxio" or another name that alludes to the fact that it will burn your dvds for you. Most of the software is pretty user friendly and if you need help using it you can just Google the software name and what your problem is and you can usually find an answer.

Now the tricky part is getting the video to a format that will allow you to burn it to dvd AND be played through a standard dvd player.

In order for your video file to be played in a standard DVD player it will need to be encoded in the MPEG-2 format. You will need software to do this for you. An excellent program would be "DVD Flick"

LifeHacker has put out an excellent tutorial explaining how to use DVD Flick here:

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

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.

I can not play audio files


In the windows media player go to > now playing - more options - devices - speakers then changed the audio device to use your soundcard.

Also, uninstall any other players, they usually interfere with each other.
