A DVD decoder is another name for an MPEG-2 decoder. The content on DVD-Video discs is encoded in the MPEG-2 format, as is the content in DVR-MS files (Microsoft Recorded TV Shows) and some AVI files. To play these items in the player, you need a compatible DVD decoder installed on your computer.

If your computer has a DVD drive, it probably already has a DVD decoder installed on it. However, if you encounter an error message that indicates that you are missing a compatible DVD decoder.

1. You can install a free MPEG-2 codec to interpret the files on the DVD. May be sometime you will meet with the problem that you have already installed a missing codec, but you still can’t play the DVD.

2. If you are using Windows Media Player, upgrade to the latest version. Go to the help menu to find a link to upgrade.

3. You can get the DVD X Player.

The DVD X Player can play regions’ DVD due to its region free feature.  It also supports recording DVD movies as MPEG-2 and to most popular portable devices.
