DVD codecs help
We are having problems with DVD codecs at our school - specifically the sound on certain DVD's. We currently have the k-lite codec pack installed on all our machines, but the sound doesn't work on certain DVD's.
On some DVD's it doesn't work at all, on some it works for the adverts but not the main film, and of course on some it works perfectly.
It seems to be at least partly permission related, as it works for the admin account on all. As a test, I installed the cccp codec pack over the top, logged on as a member of staff (they have local admin rights, they just don't know it :P), and it works.
The codecs were originally installed as the domain admin along with all the rest of the software and then imaged.
All other videos tested so far have worked i.e. avi's, mkv's etc, its just the sound on certain dvd's.
What codec packs do you guys use? and how are they set up?
Any and all ideas are appreciated
I have found this is better than K-lite - CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack
Might be worth giving that a try. If you like i have a script to send it out to all machines.
Yeh thats what i've been installing over the top, thought it wasn't working if installed as admin but just checked and it seems to be...that script would be awesome thanks :D

You will need to chage the .exe name server and share. Run this as a batch file on startup
I had aggro with some DVDs and K-Lite caused by the AC3 filter... installed this as an addition and it fixed it
Had this Issue here with the KLite codec pack - The problem lay with the AC3 component of the ffdshow audio decoder. Changing the AC3 Decoder from liba52 to libavcodec fixed it straight away (well after a restart) this can be found under programs->Klite codec pack -> Configuration -> ffdshow audio decoder configuration, then the codecs option.
