For your missing indeo 4 ( and 5 files, the solution’s easy - just download this

For your dvd playback problem it’s very hard to tell what’s wrong. Based on your description it could be anything. I don’t know what to suggest, except your generic checklist
- latest drivers for your dvd drive / display adapter
- latest service pack, version of directX, and windows media player
- test with more than one dvd
- keep trying other programs (cyberlink powerdvd?)
- try freeware programs (videolan, media player classic) reply
