Windows 7: DVD playback suddenly choppy

DVD playback suddenly choppy

Hi,

Been sat here this morning doing some bits and pieces with Media Center on Windows 7 Pro.. including some DVD importing. I found an article that suggested that just dragging the VIDEO_TS folder into the library would be enough to play the file without issue; at first this seemed to be OK but I came back to do some more DVDs and suddenly the playback is corrupted, almost like it's encrypted. I don't get why it would work at first but not now?

Any thoughts? There are no codecs on the machine other than what Windows 7 comes with and I've made to real changes to Media Center.

Neil.

Retail DVDs are by default encrypted. Unless you have some sort of software to circumvent DVD decryption you're never going to see a hat trick in your results.

Suggestion: DVD Decrypter. Do a google search for it. Given the potential legal issues, I'll refrain from linking to it.
