Hi Mat, I'm afraid I don't understand a word of your post. I am computer challenged, can you explain in simple language that even an old idiot like me can understand Many thanks Peter

Hi Peterkins777,

What MAT ALAN is saying is that your computer may not have the correct program to play your DVD video.

A codec is a device or program capable of encoding and/or decoding a digital data stream or signal eg DVD Video.

If you download his link and install this program on your computer it may well solve your problem.

K-Lite which MAT is suggesting you to download is an excellent Free Media Player.
