I've been having a problem with Windows Media Player 11 for a few months now
and I'm at a loss for figuring it out.
A few months ago, Windows Media Player decided to stop playing my DVDs.
Before this it had worked perfectly in both it and Windows Media Center.
The DVD drive works just fine as I'm able to read and write DVDs without a
problem. I had pretty much stopped watching DVDs for a few months so I
can't link it to specifically one change that I've made to my computer, but
suffice it to say none of the new program instillations should have bothered
anything video related.
This is what it looks like when I try to watch a movie:
I downloaded and install VLC Media Player and I am able to watch movies
perfectly fine with it. This leads me to believe that something has gone
wrong with the embedded DVD codec in Vista, but I can't figure out how to
find the problem or fix it.
Any suggestions? Thank you for any assistance.
