Artifacting in WMP11 when Playing DVD
So I setup a new system for my aunt to play back DVDs. The system uses parts scavenged from 2 disgraceful HP and Dell pre-builts.
I installed the windows updates fine, but I let the windows updater pick the drivers. Everything works fine and dandy, but there's a problem when I actually try to play the DVD.
I tried to use VLC originally, but it just refused to play the disk. Then I tried WMP; the playback is almost entirely artifacted. There's nothing really much to say.
What could cause this sort of problem? I'll provide more details once I get some hints on what to provide details about.
Core 2 Duo system using very ancient intel graphics.
no gpu acceleration causing issue mb / HDD ain't fast enough
I would try something like PowerDVD or similar. I don't see why a Core 2 Duo wouldn't be able to decode a DVD.
any reason why VLC wouldn't even start the DVD? i tell it to play it, but it just ignores me and does nothing. It doesn't freeze, but it just sits there like I never gave it a command.
I've actually used the HP for DVD playback in the past (where the 1.9GHz C2D is from) and it ran normally. However, the DVD drive itself isn't the same. I had to play 1080p youtube and it struggled, but it played back 720p no sweat.
also, there's a warning message on post telling me the system fan has failed, could that be screwing something up?
