Hi,

I can't get Windows Media Player 11 to play DVD's I've been on the Microsoft site and downloaded the Microsoft Windows Video Decoder Check up Utility and it says I no longer have a MPEG2 decoder installed. As far as I know this hasn't been deleted.

The error message that comes up when I try to play a DVD is "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with digital copy protection between your DVD drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card".

Does any one know how to solve this problem or where I can go to get a free mpeg2/DVD decoder from?


Thanks for your time.

I like to use VLC Media Player:

VLC is okay. But I much prefer Free DVD Decoder. It more fast.
