DVD Playback Error

  Sibbo 18:54 06 Apr 2006

A friend of mine tried to play a DVD using Windows Media Player V10 but it wouldn't do it. It should do, shouldn't it? He then downloaded a Intervido(?) trial player (or codecs) and this allowed WMP to play the DVD, but now he says that he can hear the background noises on the DVD e.g. fast cars, screeching wheels etc, but the actors voices are not audible! He does get pictures though. What can the problem be? The DVD is a retail one, and he tells me that the DVD plays OK on his set top DVD player with no problems. I've not seen it in action myself, I'm just relaying the rather sketchy details that he gave to me. Thanks in advance.

I think you will find this is possibly the only time that this has happened in all my time as a member of this forum. I have either requested advice, or done my best to help others(a fact which others can vouch for). As for your claim that I "have spammed all of your topics" please do as Diodorus Siculus has said and prove it! I have given the details of one thread, I'll leave it up to you to provide proof of others. I think an apology is in order from you, or it is I who could report you to the Forum Editor for spreading incorrect rumours about me!!

Sibbo - have you sorted out your problem?

You must be psychic mate!!
I've just this minute had a response from my friend, and he has reported that everything is OK now. Thanks for the help.

Please don't post that kind of comment in our forum.

If you suspect another forum member of doing something untoward perhaps you'll email me privately, rather than making offensive statements in the open forum. In this case I'm perfectly happy that Sibbo has NOT spammed all your topics, as you claim, and you might consider that a public apology is called for. I certainly think so.
