Media player wont play movies but will down load muisc and write information to cd


Media player requires special Codecs and plugins in order to watch movies! Most cases they are not free, but here is the site which you can acquire them.

Now, on the other hand you can buy software of dvd suits that will play DVDs

Also, there are various free players out there you can download and use to watch movies for free.

Cant watch a dvd using windows media player, i can hear the audio but no video


This is typically caused by not having the correct codec required for the video. You can get free codecs like ffdshow at sites like this: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/ffdshow.htm

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.

I cant open my movies


if you are trying to play movies in Media Player, then Media Player will not support all the video file types. You can use VLC media player to watch movies and install a codec pack to watch movies in Media Player.

Open www.filehippo.com
On the right hand side, you will see K-Lite codec pack
Download and install the pack then you can watch the movied in Media Player.

----

You can download VLC media player from same link....
