Specs: Windows XP
Hi Guy's,

My other media players play 100%
But I prefer to use wmp9. However in wmp9 DVD loads and plays title track only then closes.
I can not get it to go any further and play the actual film or recording.

Not a technical person, so not sure what to do.
Any help would be appreciated.

Kindest regards

Windows Media Player 9 is a bit dated (2003?) and does not include many of the codecs required to play movies. I believe the last codec package for it was released in 2004.

Validation Required: Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Codec Installation Package for Windows Media Player 7.1 or later:

If you open Media Guide (internet interface with ads, etc) you will notice that it doesn't even load optimally anymore. I would recommend using WMP 11 or even better VLC Media Player, which is updated regularly and even runs on Windows 95.

Hi There sd,

Thank you for that information, I will be giving it a try tomorrow, as it is a little late in the evening where I am in the UK, and hopefully it will do the trick.

If not I will use VCL Media Player as you have suggested.

Your help is very much appreciated.

Kindest Regards.
