WMP(Windows Media Player) is a popular player developed by Microsoft company, but actually it cannot play all file types. For example, it fails to support h.264, h.265 (popular video codecs on YouTube), dvd media, iso, vob, vcd (windows media player doesn't play DVD), mkv (attatched support on Windows 10), rmvb, rm, swf, webm, etc. So you may run into troubles when playing such non-supported files with Windows Media Player. That's why you need a codec pack for Windows Media Player

By default, Windows does not include a DVD decoder (which is what you need to watch DVDs).
If you are using WMP10: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx
If you are using WMP11:

Install the codec and you will be able to watch DVDs!

How to play video with .bin or of undf types ?


undf format!!!

This is most probably a FAKE Torrent download
It won't work, delete it
Don't play in WMP, if its redirecting you other sites.
FYI 'undef' is the token returned by vlc player when you try to play the formats which it not supported/or undefined.
If the video direct you play in WMP, the only thing is probably downloaded movie/video and it isn't a video at all!!
Some "Good for nothing creep" will this just to track or hack or render your PC to malfunction.
Better delete the damn file!!!

Just purchased an acer aspire one, can get movie from external dvd play playback on media player & power dvd 8 but not sound. sound plays on cds & everything else, plays on movies downloaded online...


AVS DVD Player is a free universal player that I put on all Acer Ones that I sell. It is an excellent player, that can go full screen and handle every format. It will even play VOB files which are dvd files "ripped" from dvd discs. I have never had a failure with this program....

I cannot play dvd's with power dvd dx-display output error


Try going to the Dell webpage to see if there are any updates for the software. It should be found under the support for my system link. Reason I say Dell rather than Cyberlink website is that Dell uses a "special" version bundled in their systems. There is probably an update required or it is missing the proper codecs to run. Hope this helps.

Cannot upload or play dvd with error report


Reinstall your windows player then you need to install the codecs to be able to read other formats here's one of the most complete packs of codecs. if you have doubts try this, install VLC player if the movies work on that player then your problem with the WMP will be the codecs. Make sure you install the full version.

VIDEO FILES OF CANON SX10 IS NOT PLAYING IN WMP


H264 is a "mov." file. Windows media player11 and Power DVD 9 do not support this type of file. If you don't like QuickTime, there are many free media players that will support it (VLC is a good one). You could convert the mov. file to an avi. file with a video converter program. Then your avi. format movie will play in WMP

Model ndrv-61 nec dvd recorder. having problems playing dvd's wev'e played previously comes up as disc unrecognised. We have reset to factory settings nothing has helped.


I have had similar problems and now I produce all new DVD's in DVD-R format and they are recognised. Any DVD+R will continue to deliver the same "unrecognised" disc error.
