How do I solve the "DVD decoder error"? RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi Jerry,

     

    This can occur if Windows Media Player is lack of decoders.

     

    I suggest installing Vista Codec Package 4.6.8 from the following site. After that, Windows Media Player can play videos in almost all formats.

    Dont use Windows Media Player, it sucks as far as supporting varied formats.

     

    Google "VLC Media Player" and use that. It rox.

     

    Also, don't make blank posts. Its really annoying.
