According to the M$ folks, if you cannot play a commercial DVD movie, you need to purchase a DVD decoder, as one is not installed on your computer.
This is the url they provided:
The plug-in that allows WMP11 to play DVDs can be purchased at;

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.

Media Player Classic can play DVDs. In combination with FFDShow it can play almost all codecs.

But if i do...
I will overwrite wmp9 which i currently have
and when i have wmp11
I don't know how to make wmp11 use FFDShow
as a plug-in dvd decoder or in any cases,what if wmp11 can't detect FFDShow as a dvd-decoder plug-in?
hmmm.. i heard of a codec before....
not that much but i think its going to work
although i don't know if it is full of viruses&spyware
its called MegaCodec Pack
If you are apt to download it,
might as well download from codecs.com
if you want to download in a mirror
check for reviews about the software

I looked around. FFDShow won't allow you to watch DVDs with WMP.

Sidenote: FFDShow isn't a plug-in, it is a DirectShow filter, and you can during install tell it which programs you want to use it.

I personally try to stay away from codec packs because they can often cause compatibility problems. I just use FFDShow and Media Player Classic.

Some computer programs, like games, which come with video clips built-in refuse to start or refuse to show the clip if you have a Codec Pack installed.

What would what do to which player?

Don't know. I wouldn't think so, but it depends on what all the codec pack does.

Hey, I just signed up on for this board to say thanks for the Media Player 6.4 link....

I had my cpu crash, so i reinstalled windows, and with it WMP 11.

Unbelievable, they expect to charge people $15 for simple little mpeg2 decoder. What a bunch of bleeps. And just for the RIGHT to watch my own DVD's.

Then I download a 2 megabyte old school media player and it works perfectly. Even the addons they were trying to charge for were 10 megs or more.

Well now I can watch Super Troopers, thanks guys.
