so a few nights ago I was watching a few episodes of a tv show on dvd. Right when I got to the end of the second episode on the disk, Windows Media Player froze or something. When I restarted the player and tried to play the third episode, I couldn't get any video to appear. I could here sound, but not video. I tried playing other dvds but the same thing happens. I can't jump around to different scenes on the list off to the right. I can't really do anything. So I was wondering if this could be a codec issue? It was working fine for me until it froze.

And this apparently is only happening to dvds. Other video files, avi mpeg, mpg they all are capable of playing fine. Its just these VOB files from dvds.

Maybe some codecs missing.
See, if VLC Player will work: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
