    No sound On DVD Playback

    I recently got a dell Inspiron 530, and it came with Cyberlinks PowerDVD to play DVD's. That works great, but when i play A DVD on WMP or the Real player i get a video, but no sound. Does anyone know whats going on? On my old system WMP and Real Played DVD's great. I say its a conspiracy by Cyberlink.

    Its because PowerDVD uses its own proprietary CODEC (with DRM support) instead of the system installed CODEC. Time to look for that ffdshow package (or CCCP which includes it)

    Now if I can only get my WMP (on VISTA) to recognize .mp4 files...
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    Whats preventing WMP, and Real from using the system CODEC? Or does it need to share with another program to Work right? Like my old system probably used WINDVD.


    Oh BTW im not using Vista, still with XP.



    Installed K-Lite Codec Pack, and now my sound is back. Yeah!! So it does seem WMP and Real need some program to piggyback off of.
