never sound in media player

Media Player in windows 7 will play DVDs for me, but not the sound. I have K-lite codecs installed and sound works fine in media player classic, et. all.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Knew this one would come up here soon.

Go to the control panel then Hardware and Sound then to Manage audio devices then right click and choose speaker properties then go to the advanced tab. Choose the "16 bit 48000 hz (DVD Quality)" This will get the sound working in your Windows Media player.

With the new Win build the default setting has changed so DVD's won't play sound in WMP unless you do this first.
