Windows 7: No video on dvd playback WINDOWS 7

No video on dvd playback WINDOWS 7

I get no video either in Media Center or Media Player. I do get the audio however. Right now I'm using VLC for my dvd playback. I like the zoom in Media Center though.

Anyone ever had this problem. I'm using 64-bit windows 7.

Nope al is good here, try installing some codec packs or Xvid and see if that helps.

Here is a good one to try Shark007.net - Windows 7 Codecs

I haven't had any problems with any of my disks but like I just posted in another thread it might be worthwhile to try anydvd from slysoft. You can get a time limited trial off of their site just to see if it solves your problem. No guarentees though, it will only help if the problem is the disk copyright protection.

In vista I had a similar problem and it was due to the video driver. If you set the video card hardware acceleration from "Full" down one notch it would work. Unfortunately, I am having the same problem on Windows 7 64bit on a mac mini (intel 945 integrated - gma950 video). Unfortunately the button is greyed out. I am investigating it at the moment.

Hope that helps.

Windows XP in 1, and Windows 7 in 2
 
 

this could be only because i have the x32 version (too accustomed to 32 bit systems to even try x64, though i am regretting it) but i have had no problems, im actually glad that they included a DVD player in the beta, considereing in XP i had to use a workaround. if it plays the audio, i have no idea why it would not play video, it could be something with your video card, but im not an expert, yet.

well, I have had this probelm on both 32 and 64 bit machines. It is definately a combination of video hardware/driver issues. My previous media centre machine worked fine until intel release a driver update that prevented the display on SOME video files encoded with divx but not all.

I checked different versions of divx encoding but never found a full solution. unfortunately the crap minis dont have a good/updated video. I never had this problem when running media centre via my nvidia based machine to the plasma. (on my old 7800 and now on an 8800).

I have since tried some reg hacks from xp/vista but they dont seem to make any difference to the acceleration settings in Windows 7. It is probably something to do with the driver now. Fat chance getting Intel to update whatever they need to update to fix it.

I am currently using vlc to play media from my NAS device but I really like the media centre interface. There isn't anything that can beat it at the moment. I have been using it since XP Media centre edition was released a long time ago.

Sick Nasty, any resolution to your playbck problem? I have the exact same issue.

In Vista and Win 7 build 7000, it worked great without installing any 3rd party codecs. In build 7100 I get audio in Media Center, but no video or menus.

I decided to download the Vista 64 bit drivers from Intel (version 15.8.3 - 7.14.10.1504) and installed them (ignoring the error message that I have newer drivers installed already - Pre-release WDDM 1.1). It actually works, I get the Intel graphics system icon as well. I have no problems with the drivers and video playback and all of the video editing software packages work as well.
you may want to try latest vista drivers for your graphics card too.
