Does sounds like pc doesn't have the right codec unless it is trying to look at a raw or native format video stream.

I use K-lite codec pack and haven't seen anything it won't work on.

is the official web site. Even the basic one seems to cover just about everything.

Sharing Media Videos via DLNA-Connect the Converted HD Videos MP4 to Droid X via...


DLNA for HD Videos Streaming:Camcorder Videos to Droid X with Compatible Format <br />Droid X DLNA-Stream Camcorder HD Videos from Windows 7 PC to Droid X,WD TV Live Hub via DLNA <br /><br />I have recently setup DLNA between my Windows 7 PC and Droid X, and my other home devices like WD TV Live Hub. With HDMI cable connected between WD TV Live Hub to my HDTV, I can stream most of my videos from Windows 7 PC and watch on HDTV. But Droid X does not read the .mts files that I transferred to PC from my Sony Handycam CX700. <br /><br />Actually, there are DLNA-certified cameras, which might be easily connected to Droid X via WiFi. But my camcorder is the non-DLNA compliant Sony CX700, thus I need to store the .mts files on Windows 7 PC. The mts videos play well via <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">DLNA streaming from PC to WD TV Live Hub with HDTV</a></b>. I was recommended to convert the camcorder videos in .mts to .mp4 for streaming to Droid X with Aunsoft Final Mate. <br /><br />Aunsoft Final Mate works great for the CX700 videos. I just need to import videos to Final Mate, create a movie for conversion from the File menu (File &gt; Create A Movie For Conversion), bring the clips to Movies tab. Click the Export button under the volume settings, and choose Droid X output profile to start conversion. You can also <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">Free Download Final Mate</a></b> with the trial version, and give it a try. <br /> <br />For those who may have problem <b>Setting up <a href="http://1080p-converter.com/2011/07/sharing-media-videos-via-dlna-connect-the-converted-hd-videos-mp4-to-droid-x-via-dlna/">DLNA Video Streaming</a></b>, here I would like to give you the fast guide with my Windows 7 PC, WD TV Live Hub and Droid X. <br /><br />1. Windows 7 PC is DLNA-compliant, and I just need to activate two services: SSDP Discovery and Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service. <br /><br />2. Make sure the devices are in the same network, and put the video files to the video folder on Windows 7 for sharing. <br /><br />3. WD TV Live Hub and Motorola Droid X are also DLNA-compliant. There is built-in DLNA application on Droid X, and is available in the Application tray. Just run DLNA to control or play videos on Droid X. <br /><br />Below is the DLNA application on Droid X: <br /> <br />Turn on WiFi, and you will face the following screen for playing media, copying media to server, copying media to phone, or share media. <br /> <br />To stream and play the MP4 files converted from AVCHD files by Final Mate, just choose Play media, and Droid X will ask you to choose source, choose player, and start streaming. <br /><br />With Final Mate, you can easily stream <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/07/droid-x-dlna-stream-camcorder-hd-videos-from-windows-7-pc-to-droid-xwd-tv-live-hub-via-dlna/">Camcorder Videos to Droid X with DLNA Compatible Format</a></b>.

I just bought a brand new Toshiba Satellite P75-A7200. It won't play DVD's and keeps saying wrong area code...I live in Australia, bought the PC in Australia and am trying to play Australian DVD's but


hi, I think this may help. what you need to do first of all is change the default player for DVD's from Toshiba Video Player to Windows Media Player, cant remember off hand how to do that but should be in manual, but try this. go to windows control panel, select 'Default Programs' and click on it, then select 1st option 'Set Your Default Programs' a list of all programs will come up, look for Windows Media Player and click on it, then choose one of the options on the right. The top one sets as default, the bottom one allows you to set file types to open with the program. this should work as it is telling your system to launch that program for DVD's etc, If you cant find your control panel, simply click Start and type it in the little box that appears just above it.
hope this helps

My LG DVD palyer will not play Windows Media 7


Hi,its obvious from your problem that both windows media 7 and mpeg video formats are not compatible with your dvd player,as you know,the windows media 7 is a very recent media player which is compatible with only very few dvd players so its not a defect with your dvd player,however you can go through your manual to see the list of video formats supported by your dvd player.
Thanks and take care

Play dvd nothing - play s/d card (video) sound but no picture.


You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.

Hi there
Is this problem with windows media player only or with rest players also.
You try to repair your media player using your XP installation CD and then install a good codec pack such as XP codec pack or K-Lite codec pack.These are available for free .
Hope this works for you.

Waiting for your thanks.

Video down load problem


It sounds like your computer doesn't have an MPEG-2 CODEC installed. Windows doesn't come with one on its own, you generally have to have something else installed, like a DVD player application WITH a DirectShow MPEG-2 filter. That's the usual reason for a video file playing audio-only... the video CODEC is missing.

You would think this would be on the disc that comes with the camcorder. Do they have any video player or editor of their own? Did you try it? 

Anyway, you can get a free (open source) DirectShow MPEG-2 filter here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gplmpgdec. Download and install this, and... assuming you're using a compatible version of Windows, you will probably be able to play back the video in Windows Media Player.

In the future, it's a good idea to indicate things like the computer OS you're using, version, the kinds of programs you're trying to use, etc. That will help folks like me pinpoint your specific issue.
