Windows media player will play very few DVD's on it's own. It needs to work in conjunction with a decoder. You can find a decoder, ie... Power DVD, WinVid, InterVid, etc..., at Dell's support site or filehippo.com. I use Power DVD on mine with no problems. Also, the configuration that you have will not have a noticeable or any effect on videos. They will play fine, once you have a decoder.

Dell latitude wont play mp4 video


dvancavage,

Your problem might be missing codecs. A codec (compressor/decompressor) is used to 'decode' a video or sound. A video practically needs 2 codecs; a video codec and an audio codec.

To resolve your issue, try installing K-Lite Codec Pack Pro. This will ensure you to play all types of videos and music in your computer. Install the program without changing the settings if you don't know how to change them.

Also, I suggest you un-install any other Media Players that you have and leave Windows Media Player 11 (upgrade it to 11; it's free!), QuickTime and iTunes. Set Windows Media Player 11 as your default too so you can automatically play all the files you want with WMP11. http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_li...
K-Lite Codec Pack! Download the latest PRO version/ It's FREE!

We cant plays our DVD on PDVD.Doesnt works our PDVD.It shows an error code while we trying to play a dvd by using PDVD.Code is 80040216


Read the thread from forum.cyberlink.com - Error 80040216 Power DVD!

There are many free DVD software you can use, why use Cyberlink 'buggy' software?

If you are on a Windows OS platform,
Here are some free Players eg. VLC Player, MPStar Player or Windows Media Player 11.
Download the codec package and install either "K-Lite Codec Pack or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack" from http://www.free-codecs.com/index.htm. With these you should be able to play most of the Audio and Video formats.

Hope it helps.

When i down load a movie from a sd hc card the movie won't work on the window media player it say codec problem


You need a good codec pack. I would suggest KL codec pack full. You can download it for free from here. http://www.codecguide.com/

It will allow you to play just about any video format in windows media player. Note if you are using a 64 bit operating system you need the 64 bit codec pack. Don't forget to rate me.

Windows media player doesnt play dvd movies


Simply install a DVD player separately or DVD Codec for Window's Media Player. The reason why Window's Media Player can not play the DVD movies is that it does not has a DVD codec to play it. The simplest solution to do it is to install a DVD Player program and Window's Media Player will start playing DVD movies.

-Unfortunately Windows media player is only loaded with a few codecs for video so you will need a codec pack found HERE

-just click Direct link and download and install the codec pack. Now you should be able to play 99.8 percent of video files in any format in WMP.

-As for myself, I swear by VLC media player as no additional codecs are required. its fast and easy to use. You can grab it HERE

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.

What DVD playback program are you using? Intervideo WinDVD is the best for-pay one, but you might look into Media Player Classic and VLC Media Player. Also, search google for K-Lite Mega Codec Pack and install it. It has the codecs required to play most movie formats. This could just be an issue of a broken codec. I would also recommend updating your video drivers (the screen that changes the color bit depth should tell you what kind of video adapter your laptop has; go to the manufacturer's website and get the latest driver).
