    DVDs(with menus) I have created in Encore so far don’t work with some videos players(WMV, VLC, etc), although they work with actual DVD players and DVD playing softwares.

    Windows Media Player can’t play anything at all(probably due to lack of codecs?). VLC player can access the menus and play the videos, but the video controls don’t work. Gom Player seems to work pretty well, although clunky.

    Is this to be expected when using Encore(I’m using CS4)?

    You need a software DVD player or an MPEG2 decoder that windows can use. The former is preferred. WinDVD, PowerDVD, Nero and many more come free in OEM versions with a lot of drives and most PC manufacturers include one on their systems..

    Hi Chin ,

    John is right .

    I am using Power DVD for viewing my DVDs on computer . There is also a PowerDVD version available for Blu ray as well , if you want to view your Blu rays on computer try it.

    Thank you, both.

    The problem is I am burning DVDs for clients, and some are saying that they can view “hollywood movie” DVDs without special codecs or dvd software, using regular video players like Windows Media Player. But, they can’t play DVDs that I made using Encore CS4 (although my DVDs work perfectly in DVD players and with DVD playing software).

    Is there a way to create DVDs like that using Encore CS4? If there is a way for clients to pop in a DVD and have it work without needing special codecs or a DVD player software, that’d be great.
