Paul881 -> MPEG2 Encoder/Decoder (11/10/2004 8:45:34 AM)

My first post, so be gentle with me[8|]

I have just installed an NEC 3500 DVD-RW OEM version and at the same time, bought Nero 6 OEM suite, including Showtime. When I try to play Video's, I get a message saying that I have to buy an mPEG 2 liscence for £25 from nero.

Is this right, or is there a work around?

As a newcomer to all of this, I was also amazed that WMP10 can't playback a DVD either.

I'm not 100% familiar with the different Nero versions (OEM/Enteprise etc.). I guess the oem version does not support DVD playback( a way to cut down the cost of the bundle). Along with WMP software, they lack the necessary codecs to playback DVD Video.

A workaround I can think of is installing another freeware dvd player software. One completely freeware solution I can think of now is VideoLan media player.

Welcome to CDRinfo's Forum!

There are some DVD packs, something like drivers, which might help you. I'll search for them. Otherwise you can install a freeware player.
