Try downloading the latest version:


and try your activation-key. It might work.

The video format from the DVD is not recognised or supported by the player you have installed.

An alternative is to install the latest Codec for Windows OS(K-Lite Codec Pack Full or K-Lite Mega Codec Pack) from http://www.free-codecs.com/index.htm.


You can download the MPCStar player which play most Video/Audio format from http://www.mpcstar.com/ or you can also use the VLC Player from http://vlcplayerdownload.org/ (but need to install the codec too.)

Hope it helps.

First of all, do you have a BlueRay disc player in the computer, or just a DVD player? Also, from what I can tell, WinDVD 5 only supports DVD playback, not BlueRay. That may be why it's seeing "protected content". It just doesn't recognize the disc. If you do have a BlueRay player, you may need to upgrade to a newer version of WinDVD, or try some other software.

ok Fred did your son pass along any cd's for the machine, look in that plastic envelope he dropped on you and said you will never need them. In there is a WinDVD 5 cd install cd, slide that bad boy in and let auto start load it on the machine. If its not there tell JR to find it when he does install it or have him get his **** over to do it he took it off to put another DVD program on. And after that tell him to take you out to the web page for it and updated it because if i remember its going for about $59 bucks

Welcome to FixYa
DVD stands for Digital Versatile/Video Disc, DVDR stands for DVD Recordable and DVDRW for DVD ReWriteable. If you're familiar with regular audio/music CDs or regular DVD-Video discs, then you will know what a recordable DVD looks like. A recordable DVD stores up to 2 hours of very good quality DVD-Video, including several audio tracks in formats like stereo, Dolby Digital or DTS and also advanced menu systems, subtitles and still pictures that can be played by many standalone DVD Players and most computer DVD-ROMs. If you choose to lower the video quality it is possible to store several hours video on a recordable DVD using low bitrates and low resolution with video quality more like VHS, SVHS, SVCD, CVD or VCD. It is also possible to have up to 4.37* GB ordinary data or mix DVD-Video and data on a recordable DVD that can be played by most computer DVD-ROMs.
There are three competing DVD Recording standards, DVD-R/DVD-RW and DVD+R/DVD+RW have pretty similiar features and are compatible with many standalone DVD Players and most DVD-ROMs while DVD-RAM has less DVD Player and DVD-ROM compatibility but better recording features.
Do Following:
  • Check your Audio Driver/Cable Properly installed[To check Audio Play other Audio Files in this Software OR with other Player]
  • Uninstall Program[Converter Software] Completely-Reboot PC-Reinstall it
  • Check the Drive you Trying to Write is able to Write/Write Protected
  • Try to play with any Other DVD Softwares
  • Check DVD codec properly Installed on PC.If not Download it when ask/prompt to Download when Opening Software
VCD do not require any codec but SVCD/DVD requires a MPEG2 Codec or software DVD Player

Intervideo isn't your video driver, it's a program you have on your computer. To see what your video card is:
  • right-click on a blank part of the desktop
  • select Properties from the menu
  • select the Settings tab
  • you should see something like the picture below

My display (video) card is an NVidia GeForce2 as shown. What is yours?

I think KMplayer is better than Windvd, and it is a free software, you can search it on google.
www.hishopnow.com is a good online shop for you to buy camcorders
