DVD Decoder - January 19th 2009, 05:34 AM

Is there any DVD decoder software that free? I do have power cinema that I'm guessing has a decoder but it doesn't like being installed onto my comp, it freezes then shuts down so...any suggestions?

edit 2: seems the OP means a dvd player, In that case I recommend VLC media player . This program has never failed to play a DVD and appears to bypass any region coding.

wmp plugins can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...r/plugins.aspx but they won't be free because of licensing.

Haha, yes. I know nothing about comps so yeah. It means something about needing a codec, any ideas on how to get one of those? The DVDs I do try to play are in my country's region so...

I second Lee's recommendation - VLC media player is the best player out there.
If you really want to stick to WMP, try downloading the K-Lite codec pack (link). That has all the codecs you're ever likely to come across.

It's a media player much like wmp but lighter on resources and has a lot of codecs pre-installed. It will play nearly all video types (inc dvd) without problem and has better choices than wmp not to mention VLC is free (as in speech)
