    I need help in getting Windows Media Player to play my VCDs. Previously it
    was able to do that. Am not sure what happened recently but now it just
    refuse to play.

    The error message is C00D11B1

    Please help

    Thanks a lot

  2. VideoCD uses the MPEG-1 decoder, That should be available if your
    DirectX is up to date, as it's provided by that - see DirectX 9.0c on
    this page

    If that doesn't help after reinstalling DirectX, you might find
    FFDShow restores VideoCD playback, though I've never tried it for
    that, it lists VCD support in the package contents :
