After instaling XP, Downloading video and sound drivers I wanted to watch a movie, so i got a DVD put it in and clicked play using Windows Media Player but an error message popped up saying

“Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatable DVD decoder is not instaled on yout computer”

Hello Ben, welcome to CDF :slight_smile:

I would recommend you use the free software VLC to watch your movies. It supports many audio/video formats too. :slight_smile:


Ah that one :slight_smile: ive used that on my old pc its good. Lol i only got it so i could play my American dvd ^^ as im in the UK

Oh and thanks for the info but there is one last thing when playing on any video player i can see little horizontal lines going down the screen do you know what that could be? maybe my video graphics driver?
