    Dvd no sound?

    Hello

    I was wondering if anyone can help me

    Its that time year again where its the end of term and everyone is watching movies in there classroom and we are getting sound problems

    When they play the DVD(on Windows Media Player) there is sound on the trailers but when they play the movie there is no sound

    then I try VLC player and it works fine

    Note:This only happens with some DVD

    does anyone have any idea???

    Also if it helps we are using Windows 7 Enterprise

    Thank you

    Sounds like a codec issue, though could be the playback quality under sounds settings. vista was always set to DVD quality by default and this caused problems.
    My guess though is media player has a codec issue, try installing klite codec pack and see if the issue goes away.

    We have endless trouble with Windows Media Player and DVDs. It's a codec issue, but as we have PowerDVD installed everywhere we just tell the staff to load it in that (as they should anyway - Media Player wasn't designed for DVDs).

    K-Lite is illegal to use without a licensed copy of PowerDVD installed. There may be other software licenses required in addition as there are other CODEC's installed that are not FOSS - however I have not had responses from any of the other companies.

    Current version of the Win32 VLC (anything after version 0.8.6 I think) is illegal due to the DRM and CSS circumvention under EUCD AFAIK (currently our LEA is checking this for us).

    DVD playback - what programs are you using?

    This has been known to fix the problem in some cases:
    Free-Codecs.com :: Download AC3 Filter 1.63b : AC3 Filter is a DirectShow filter for AC3 decoding
    Although in one case I noticed that the teacher had selected the mute button!
