Philips DCP850/37 My dvd player will play sound from my SD card but not the videos I have recorded on my camera. The message is "video codec not supported". What is the problem?

    No leads being used - I am simply taking the SD card out of my camera and putting it into my portable DVD player. (Philips DCP850/37) I can view stills OK but when I select a video, I can hear the audio but there is no picture, just the message "video codec not supported". Hope this makes sense and you can help!

I need a codec code to play a video off my sd card for a sylvania sdvd704ob portable dvd player


Codecs are for computers. If your DVD is one of those stand-alone DVD players or those you you connect to a TV, there is no way to load it a codec.

There are different codecs for different type of video files and installerd dedepend of operating system of your device.

just for your informatiom, a very cood codec pack is the one offered by L-Lite for Windows

Download Lite Codec Pack

If you decide download it for your computer, be careful WHAT you download., press where it says download... in small letters. Keep away from big DOWNLOAD displays, they are adware and potentially unconvenient programs

Converting NTSC home Video tapes to Pal DVD or NTSC DVD


You need either an NTSC DVD recorder (keep in mind that the US has 110 voltage, while Australia does not), or a computer card that supports NTSC. Some video capture cards support both NTSC and PAL (often switchable). Choose good quality, and pay attention to video/sound sync - some bad quality cards loose sync. Once the tapes are transferred to DVD - and keep it native NTSC all the way, they can be played on virtually any PAL DVD player/TV combo. With an NTSC source, it's best NOT to convert to PAL, while with a PAL source in the US, you'd need to convert to NTSC or only show the DVD on a computer (where NTSC/PAL doesn't matter).

Can't hear sound on Windows Mediaplayer from DVD I recorded


I've been pondering this one for a day or so - at least two possibilities:
1) There is a mute/audio-off hotbutton inside Windows Media Player itself - click on it and see if the audio works. Alternatively, you can try playing a music file in Windows Media Player to see if THAT file has sound.
2) You need a better Codec - the free version of the K-Lite Codec has limited audio support. There are no easy answers to this problem. I frequently use my computer for converting VHS's to DVD, so I finally plunked down the $50 to purchase Nero 9 and all of its codecs. Before that, however, I used VLC Media Player (free) - it has DVD/VOB audio support.

As a side note, if you wanted to use your computer to convert the VHS's to DVD, you would need a plain-old VCR, a red/white/yellow cable, a DVD burner, and a product called the Dazzle DVD Recorder from Pinnacle. You can hook the VCR straight to your computer and burn away. To get the best experience however, I would also get a program like Nero, Roxio, etc. to do the actual DVD burning (although the Dazzle's native software is perfectly capable of doing the job).

Good luck!

Is a Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder codec or driver needed to play DVD disks on computer?


There are work arounds... but the reason is when its burnt and finialized its written in .vob format which is dvd mpeg2 format. majority of windows media player codecs wont pick it up. divx does. its just the format its burnt in and you cant change obviously. you can just try like nero showtime which always works or ending up ripping the disc on the computier but that might defeat your purpost of burning them in the first place. Its not the dvd recorder i may add, its just the format. by the way its a magnavox unit made by funai... www.funai-corp.com/support and trust me your not going to get much out of their. your better off going into forums finding more high depth problems if you really want this to work for firends and families and such.

Viewing a recorded DVD+R on PC


I am assuming you have an actual dvd drive of some sort installed in your computer. The problem you may be having is a missing codec. This problem can be solved by downloading a VLC player which has most needed codecs pre installed. This program is freeware and can be easily found online. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
