Free DVD Decoder



Where can I get a free DVD decoder for Windows XP? Thanks in advance for your replies.


A codec? A player? A ripper?


Very good Question :slight_smile: When you find one can you let us know so we can get one as well :slight_smile:


For watching DVD-Video, you’ll need these decoders at least:

Free MPEG2 video decoder here.
Free MPEG2 audio decoder here (bottom of page, under freeware).
Free AC3 audio filter here.


Or just use MPC player, VLC Player or the ffdshow-tryouts :).


When I play to store bought DVDs on the player you suggested it says that it’s copyrighted and I can’t play it. How do I fix this?
