DVD Codec
    #3424092 - 11/29/04 07:22 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Here is the situation

I have a computer with a DVD player, which I formatted.

Said player will not play DVD's without a player or a codec for Windows Media Player since the format.

All DVD codecs/players seem to cost money.

I don't want to pay money, since the functionality was lost by a stupid mistake.

So, any good places to get DVD player stuff from for free?

Thanks, 5 shrooms and some good karma for anyone who helps.

Are you sure you mean the "codec" and not the DVD player?

Most codecs are free, try downloading the Divx codec or the Xvid codec

A codec is a small peice of software that allows another program (e.g. winamp or windows media player) to decode a type of specially encoded video.

Are you sure you don't just need a DVD theatre program? Something like Ulead DVD Player ? You will of course have to pay for that, but if your curious as to what a crack for it might be like, I heard somewhere that you can find keygens at www.cracks.am if you search for "Ulead DVD Player"

Hope I didn't misunderstand you and I hope this helps.

VLC will play anything. I have had many a video that won't play in anything else but VLC.

Don't get the klite codec pack. That thing sucks. EIther get DVD a program like WinDVD or PowerDVD.
Or try Media Player Classic. Its free and it works well. Just open it up, put the DVD in and hit ctrl+D and enjoy the show.
It can also be used to watch all of your other video files. It even has a Quicktime and Realplayer alterantive. (seperate)
