Windows 7: WMP 12 DVD audio failure

WMP 12 DVD audio failure

I did run into a small surprise on an older system that required me to download the audio drivers from MS update. The audiochip is made by VIA.

WMP12 doesn't play the audio when viewing a DVD movie, but when I use Media Center, then everything works.

Any advice on how to reinstall/enable the needed audio codec into WMP12 ?
I tried to disable/enable WMP12, but this didn't solve it, neither does changing the settings for filetypes etc connected to WMP.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Try doing this in sound properties. Switching to DVD quality 48000Hz sometimes helps with this problem.
