XP/media player 11 refuses video dvd

  Chicks 10:21 11 Feb 2011

I have tried playing commercial video DVDs (correct region set) using media player11 or VLC and get this message

"Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because it is not possible to turn on analog copy protection on the output display. Try installing an updated driver for your video card."

I have an ATI Radeon 4800 card installed with the latest drivers and an Iiyama ProLite E418 display.

Has anyone seen this and have a cure for me

Many thanks in advance for considering this problem

Sorry Crossbow7 but neither of these helped. Altho the screen has two inputs there is not another screen attached to either the main display or the video card.

Thanks for trying

Try lowering the resolution of your display. After some googling it seems this error occurs if your monitor or graphics card are not hdcp compliant.

Mark, thanks for your help. While your suggestion did not completely solve the problem it has moved me forward. I reduced as you suggested the resolution of the screen and the DVD played the sound and no message was received and when I returned the screen to max resolutuin I could also hear the sound but without the video component. Now all I need to do is find the video

Thanks once again

if you can hear but not see, you might not have the right codec. Try playing it in VLC media player again.

This is the codec pack I install. Scroll down to see the versions ie. XP/Vista/Windows 7.
