' Psychedelic ' type display when DVD is played

  buckeye 23:14 28 Mar 2007

My daughter is having problems playing dvd's on her computer..i.e.on WMP11 or Real player she gets what can best be described as a psychedelic type picture . . . anyone any ideas ??? she is running XP Pro SP2

Is it only this particular DVD or all DVD's?

Hope this isn't sounding too basic...

But WMP11 and the older versions come with what are known as "visualisations" If your daughter clicks from " now playing" to "library" will stop the display, and then can disable from "Tools" "Options " Visualiations"

I'll tell her to give that a try in the a.m.

you could try a different player and a codec pack here: click here
with a different player does it still happen?
