I have windows media player on my laptop but every time i put a dvd in, it says that i don't have a compatible decoder or something? How do I get one of those?

Are they free also?
Please can someone reply asap

Windows Media Player doesn't play MPEG-2 videos (DVD) by default.

You'll need to download the proper codec.

Here's a complete codec pack: K-Lite Codec Pack


Or, you can install the VLC player, which already includes that MPEG-2 codec.
