Wmp 11 And Missing Codec[s]


edx15plextor

Question

Vista 32 bit Business

New Build

ASUS M2N - E motherboard

AMD AM2, 64 bit 4600+ CPU

2 x 1024 MB ram, 667 MHZ

XFX GeForce 8600GTS graphics card

Plextor DVD burners

Easy MC 9, bundled with Plextor drives

 

When I tried to play a commercial DVD, Roxio Easy Media Creator 9's CinePlayer popped up & played the DVD.

 

I closed CinePlayer & tried to use WMP11, but was informed that I should change my display settings to a lower quality, which I did.

 

WMP 11

tools > options > DVD

"advanced" is greyed out.

 

I uninstalled Roxio 9, to include CinePlayer.

Now, the "advanced" button is active, indicating that the codec is installed [ I think that is the indication ] but still no success.

 

If I need to install a codec, or a codec pack, do I need to uninstall the Roxio Codec? If so how?

 

I would like to have Roxio installed AND be able to play DVDs using WMP.

 

I can view some [ all that I have tried ] web based videos & hear the audio, using WMP 11.

 

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your reply.

 

I apologize for not responding sooner. I am still learning my way around this excellent forum.

 

I may upgrade to Vista Ultimate.

The Roxio Cineplayer codec shouldn't matter to WMP.It needs to have a plugin that allows DVD playback.I believe in that article there were links to those plugins.I have both on my machine and can view a DVD in either.

Thank you for the educational link.

 

Do I need to uninstall the Roxio Codec? If so how?

 

I would like to have Roxio installed AND be able to play DVDs using WMP. At present EMC 9 is uninstalled. Should I install it, then the codecs, or should I install the codecs, then EMC 9?

 

Thanks for your help.
