No DVD sound in Media Player!

posted in General

Hi, I have had this problem for some time now.

Basically I can’t get any sound from DVDs when I play them in MS Mediaplayer. I have the latest version of mediaplayer, but still no joy, I used to be able to get sound in older versions (i think 7). I can’t seem to find any configurations in the options menu to deal with this.

I can, however, play DVDs with sound using Cyberlink’s Power DVD package that came with my laptop.

Does anybody else have/had a similar problem, and if so, what course of action did you take to rectify this? reply

WTF!!!!!!!! If U can play ur DVD using Cyberlink’s Power DVD..then why still wanting 2 play em with fucking media player? Drunk..Stone..High?!! reply


Erm, stoned, yes. However, I find it strange that I get NO SOUND from mediaplayer, surely there’s something wrong... plus i found it kind of easier to navigate DVDs with mediaplayer. reply

This is (sometimes) caused by a seemingly random incompatibility between certain DVD Codecs & windows media player. Installing AC3 Filter will resolve (free codec) available at & reply
