Bought Nvidia, Media Player won't play VOP files

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Sophie Borodin, Jan 15, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    I downloaded Nvidia hoping I'd be able to watch some of the VOP DVD
    files I've downloaded. When I open the files in Windows Media Player,
    there is sound but no picture. Isn't the Nvidia decoder supposed to
    enable the picture to appear? Or is there some other program I need to
    be able to watch a VOP file on my computer?

    (Oh, and Nvidia's customer service sucks. Every time you have a
    question you have to go through a bunch of screens and they ask for all
    your system specs EVERY time even after you create an account. And
    they just send you a canned answer and you can't reply to it, but have
    to go through the whole process again.)

    You need to buy a software DVD decoder. MPEG2 support, which
    is what you are lacking, does not come for free with anything due to
    licensing issues.

    There are apparently some cracked MPEG2 codecs floating
    around on the Net, and somebody will likely jump in here are
    point you to them, but they often come with scumware and/or
    virus embedded.

  3. I thought that Nvidia was a software DVD decoder. Do I need something
    else or can you suggest a better program?

    Thank you,

    Nvidia is just drivers for your video card. Won't have
    what you need.

    You need WinDVD or similar.

    I downloaded the free trial of Nvidia DVD decoder and could never get it to
    work. You might want to just try one of the stand alone dvd software
    players like Power DVD, WIn DVD, or one of the other plugins for Windows
    Media Player.
