Having A problem with windows media player 11 and a DVD.

  1. Sep 7, 2006 #1
    Umm my friend recently gave me a DVD with some physics videos on it that he thought that i should watch i got back to my room and the vids didnt work but then he tried it on his computer which also had windows media player and it worked perfectly so i dont really understand what is happening.

    The file extension is .mp4

    i went trobleshooting on the windows site but i came up with nuttin so i figured i would throw a post up here and see what you guys are saying.

    Perhaps you need to install the mp4 codec manually.

    Didnt think windows media player played dvd's out of the box, and I dont think that the codexs are free for that. Try a different player, like winamp and see if they have the correct codexs.
