playing dvd in windows media player trouble
so i recently built a new computer, i installed a variety of codec packs, including k-lite and combined community codec pack, i have windows media player 10, but when i go to open a dvd movie in windows media player it wont open, it gave me an error which tells me a dvd decoding thingy is not working. i got a download from microsoft that tells me what video decoding things i got and it tells me my mpeg2 decoder isnt compatible.
So first it wasnt opening at all, i went into windows media player tools->options->dvd tab-> advanced and enabled mpeg2 decoder which wasnt previously enabled, and checked dvd decoding box. Next to the dvd decoding box it says "not working properly". When i did these things, it opens up the DVD but no picture is there.
It also wont let me play it in interactual player which is installed off the DVD itself. I got VLC media player that a friend recommended and it plays the DVD, but i want it to play in the other players too like it used to.
What did i do, or didnt i do to make DVD movies work in windows media player.
under the decoder in the windows media player option it says "libavcodec" under every format thats enabled and then theres others that are disabled(random formats like vcr1,scq1.)
