VLC?

    As I've said earlier VLC 2.0.5 works in every OS EXCEPT Windows 8, I do not think it's the lens sorry.

    I am in windows 8 and run VLC 2.0.5 no problem.
    If you have a problem uninstall it and reinstall it
    See if that works…

    I have VLC on several Windows 8 PCs and no disk playback issues.

    Is there a driver issue in 8? Has it been uninstalled and reinstalled?

    I agree to the fact that multiple codec pack interfere with each other. VLC doesn't need codec packs since it has all bundled.

    Try to remove any codec packs and re-install VLC.

    Get to test the 64bit version as well if your Windows is 64bit. That has its own 64bit codecs.

    Still doesn't answer why 1.1.3 works where as 2.0.5 does not for dvds/blu-rays anyway works fine with any other format.

    Edit: vlc works with DVDs/blurays up to 1.1.9. 2.0 branch for me does not work in windows EXCEPT when I build from source or on Linux. So if DVDs play fine with 2.0.5 on Linux and osx but do not on windows unless compiled from source. Isn't that a bug? Various reports from the same issue for windows but not osx or linux.

    Alright...

    Was the install of 8 an upgrade or clean install?

    Can you find out in 7 if Media Player (or in 8 if you have the Media Center addon) if DVD playback works? Also, is this an issue that has recently cropped up or been like that for a while?

    DVDs play fine in media center on 7 never bought the upgrade for 8 though. It seems more of a vlc issue to me and each CVD is encrypted differently.
