MPEG-2 Codecs for interActual Player
This is OLD content
the old links to download mpeg2 codecs were broken; I'm sure you can use google to find a download site
interActual Player 2.0 is a free Windows DVD playing software bundled with many DVD movies. However, it frequently does not work and gives the error message: Playback failed due to a problem with the video subsystem. Lowering your screen resolution or color depth may fix the problem. However, this is often not the problem. The problem is that MPEG2 codecs need to be installed if the video card does not have a DVD-decoder.
I have succesfully installed this on a Windows 98 computer. For screen resolution and color depth, I have found that 800x600 and 640x480 work fine with 32-bit color (True Color) and 16-bit color (High Color).
