I am having some issues with the sound on my laptop when playing DVDs with Media Player Classic.
Just some background, recently Dell replaced the system speakers in my computer...I'm not sure if this was the cause of the problem or not, but my warranty is expired, so I can't go back to them to find out.
When I go to play a DVD, I hear everything fine. But when there is music (background noices, climatic music, anything of the sort) playing, I cannot hear the actors'/actresses' voices.
If i put the volume all the way up, I can hear the voices, but the music is deafening.
I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue, or what it could possibly be.
The reason I use Media Player Classic is that if I try to play a dvd in Windows Media Player, I get an error message. This could be a separate problem, or connected. I followed advice on other websites, and have used the Windows CP Video Decoder Checkup Utility. I get two results, which are neither compatable with Media Player 10 or MCE Compatable.
Here are the two things:
Ligos MPEG Video Decoder, lmpgvd.ax, 188.8.131.52
GPL MPEG-1/2 Decoder, GplMpgDec.ax, 0.1.2.0
Hopefully someone can help me with either problem. Just fyi, the Dvds I am trying to play are all legally obtained, either from Netflix (free trial) or bought from the store, and the problem exists with all of them (eliminating the "it must be the CD" problem).
