I have a dell insperon that I bought a couple of years ago that I have done little but do work apps on. I decided to expand my horizons a bit and watch a movie. I had sound but no picture. After looking in the help section I found I must now have a dvd decoder. (wouldn't you figure that it should have come with this since it came with a dvd player?) So after some searching I found nividia dvd decoder 1.00, and also a codec pack called xp codec pack 2.4.1....I installed both and guess what....yep....no change. still have sound but no picture. Any help would be appreciated.
I like media player calssic. I find it better than VLC. I can't really help, I use classic for my dvd watching. But, if you are dead set on WMP11, maybe you should try k-lite codec pack. I don't think they have a DVD play back, but its worth a shot.
I am not hooked on wmp 11 or anything. I tried the vlc and it does work but I am not wild about pic quality etc but it will do in a pinch. I am downloading 4.3.4 now and will advise. thanks for all the help.
