Is the source media involved in this issue a retail video DVD like you might acquire from RedBox, and are you certain it is not a BlueRay Disc.
OR
IS it a homemade movie produced with third party software and if so what format is it in.

Hi Michael,

if all other suggestions from the other posters fail, try a CD cleaner for that just in case scenario. ;););)

Try Pot Player and see if that will work. I actually like it better than VLC.

We tried this suggestion but backed off as his antivirus program flagged big red screen when we tried to download.
I may try to download the program on my desktop and save to USB an give it a try on his. ;)

hey...case almost solved...
I installed PotPlayer and the darn thing works..
My fried jumped off the chair in delight and so did I.
But... I cannot get PotPlayer to start automatically. We have to go Open PotPlayer =>Open Files=> go to the DVD player and look for the first trac => Open trac.
Cannot find the setting for this. :(

Hi Michael,

see post # 7 and set PotPlayer (never heard of it) as default player!. Another recommendation is to remove any other 3rd party apps that you have that are related to playing vids/music!. :):):)

I read that Michael has already had success with Potplayer.?
Oddly, I did use it some months ago, but experienced the same problem that he describes. I went back to VLC, which, unlike Michael's, works flawlessly for me.

I kicked PotPlayer out and went back to VLC on my machine too.
But my friend is happy now and Im too for his sake.
Thanks for all input in this matter.
Michael
