I am a little confused.

You are saying you speakers work for internet and playing DVD's but for nothing else.

Is that correct? If not please explain a little bit more clearly.

this is what it says. Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer.

My choice would be for the DivX Player. You can download it for free at divx.com
It's a great player. I wouldn't worry too much about Windows Media Player.
