Windows Media player autorun issue

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


When I trying to view a DVD, autorun does not start and the DVD will not play. But when I double click to open the DVD all my files are seen intact, but when I click on any of them, I get an error message. Please help?

Windows Media player cannot open the file. The player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

Windows Media Player is a nice media player with cool GUI and awesome graphical performance. But this is its biggest problem that it doesn’t support many popular media file format.

But there are remedies for this also. The easiest solution is installing codecs for Windows Media Player.
