FIX: Video could not be decoded on Windows 10

There’s a lot of different codec packs, all of them free. We had the best time with the K-Lite Codec pack, which is fairly light in comparison to some other similar packs.

3. Install an alternative player

This is as apparent as it can be. If you’re not a purist and want to use exclusively system-provided apps for your multimedia dosage, the best you can do is give a try some other multimedia player.

And there’s a lot of those available for free. The first one which crosses our mind is the Master of utility, VLC media player.

There’s probably not a single video format that can’t be played with VLC. The interface is indeed obscure, but all in all, this is probably the best all-in-one video player you’ll ever find.

Some alternatives you can try out are BS Player, GOM Player or KM Player. All free and, mostly, paired with adequate audio and video codecs.

This means that all of them should perform much better with video files, and you’ll most certainly avoid the above-mentioned error.

4. Update Windows

Finally, if you’re determined to use Windows resources for the DVD reproduction’s sake, but the error is omnipresent, the only remaining thing you can do is to update your system.

Some users reported that the error even speeded on the browser’s video streaming, but it was resolved by updating the system.

So, make sure that your system is up to date and maybe, and just maybe, the error will be gone. Furthermore, you can navigate to Store and update the Movies & TV app from there.

Changes are frequent and there’s a chance that there’s a resolution for the issue at hand.

That should do it. We hope that this was a helpful read and encourage you to share your experience in the comments section below.
