I use Server 2008 box as my primary machine (I'm a developer) so I've tried to configure it as much as is it can to a behave as a Vist Desktop.
I've attempted and failed to convinve Media Player 11 to play DVDs in the process I think I may have trashed its codec set or some such thing. It won't play Mp4 files (I'm not sure it ever did but I think its supposed to). I just get the dreaded "cannot play... might not support ... codec blah..." message.
Unfortunately you only have to wave the word "codec" at a search engine to be inundated with a wave of acronym diahrea which is impossible to decipher by video dummies like me.
Anyone know of a simple way to correct this without re-installing (or how how can simply re-install windows media player on 2008 that won't trash other stuff).
If anyone know how I can (if possible) convince Media player to play DVDs on server 2008 that would be a bonus. ;)
