    Default DVD Language.

    Hi All.
    DVDs that play on a player & into the TV rarely work on the computer.

    Why?

    A different "Language"?

    How can I make it work?

    Thanks PJ.

    PS...XPHome & an Imation DVD External RW unit. In the Tin Box..ASUS DVD RW Unit. pj

    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    You shouldn't need to do any configuring.
    Just install it then run your DVD with whatever player software you have.

    A bit late, but:

    codec

    (1) Short for compressor/decompressor, a codec is any technology for compressing and decompressing . Codecs can be implemented in , hardware, or a combination of both. Some popular codecs for computer video include MPEG, Indeo, and Cinepak.
