    I am trying to play a DVD rip on my computer and I am not getting any audio. I have downloaded three DVD playing programs and none of them will play the audio. I have tried sticking in a DVD movie and once again I get no audio. However I have audio on all other types of video formats. WhatÂ’s going on?

    >_> What DVD players are you trying? I always use Media Player Classic, and the Ace Mega Codecs Pack, or Combined Community Codec Pack (try google, i reccomend ACE). These will play most formats, and i had this problem, until i started using this

    You could try re-installing the sound drivers for your computer so they will work with all of the programs.

    Also if this does not work check the options in the players that have no sound to see if there is any setting that might be blocking the sound from playing like line in not set right etc.

    I have Easy DVD Player, Advanced DVD Player Pro, Artisan DVD Player and Windows Media Player.

    Its not the audio drivers because I get audio on other video formats. But I am not even getting sound in WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER on DVD's. So its not the program. Especially when 4 programs do the same thing.

    Yeah, i have tried all of those and none worked (Sans Windows Media Player but only after i installed Ace Mega Codecs Pack).
    How fast is your internet? are you able to download ~95 mb files? if so google for the Ace mega codec pack. otherwise CCCP-project.net has cccp which is about 7 mb i believe, but wont support ANYWHERE near as much as ACE

    Alrighty then, here is the link for ACE mega, it is easy to install (i would reccomend the professional install when installing it) and choose "No codecs download for Windows Media Player".

    Thanks. But!

    Every time I choose full screen in Windows Media Player I get black lines on the bottom and top of the video. I have a 16:10 wide screen monitor. How do I stretch the whole video to fill the entire screen?

    Is the video distorted at all? if not then it is probably properly fit (as in the movie is 3:5 instead of the 4:5 that your monitor is) BTW: 16:10 reduces to 4:5

    No the vide is not distorted but it does not fit the screen. Its like the video is "zoomed in" about 15%. Like when the "THX certified" thing came up on the video, the bottom lines that are in the THX logo did not show on the screen. They were cut off.


    Is there a DVD player you would recommend to me that will play full screen movies and make them fit the whole screen that is free to download?

    Try using Media Player Classic. it should have come with Ace Mega Codecs Pack. I have never had any problems with that

    That one sucks. It does the same thing as the normal WIndows Media Player.

    that is all i ever use. it isnt quite as begginner friendly (some options are more hidden than normal) but it has more features and can play DVDs better than WMP.

    I have no reccomendations other than WinDVD but im not sure if that is free or not (its what my school's computers use to play DVDs)
