DVD Decoder

  Spr 17:22 28 Mar 2009

I tried to play a DVD that came with a Photoshop magazine unfortunately trying to play it I receive the following
“Window Media Player cannot play the DVD because the DVD decoder is not installed on your Computer”

How or where can I download the Decoder?

Thank you

I think that utility only tells you if you have the decoder installed or not, it doesn't actually contain a decoder. Spr needs a program like PowerDVD which does contain a decoder. It's been a while since I needed a decoder but I think VLC media player contains one. click here

Silly me - of course you're right, and apologies to Spr for misleading info
