No sound from WMP

  Skeletor 12:00 02 Mar 2006

When I play a DVD in WMP which has been burnt of home movies, the picture is fine, but there is no sound. I've checked all the Options for sound that I can find, and made sure the volume settings are ok. If I try playing the DVD in Power DVD everything is fine.
Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Steve

There's a Mute button in WMP - you haven't Enabled it by any chance?

You may also be missing a required audio oodec(s).

Thanks Stuartli,

No, I've checked that the mute button isn't enabled.

DVD's used to play OK. The sound problem I'm having is quite a recent one.

How do I know which codec I need?

Should add that I have the latest version of WMP.

Cheers, Steve

As you already have PowerDVD (and with DVD enabled in WMP's Files Types) you shouldn't have any problems playing DVDs with WMP.

WMP requires a software or hardware DVD decoder to be installed to be able to play DVDs.
