    Between laziness and impatience
    I am trying to play mpeg2s on my computer, but I keep getting a window that tells me

    "The Cineplayer Decoders have not been activated. You must activate product before use."

    I searched it on google and it turns out cineplayer is some 15 dollar program that adds onto WMP. I dont plan on paying 15 bucks to watch my own mpeg2 files. What are my options and why is it doing this?

    I had the same issue before.

    Do you have Roxio Easy Media Creator installed?

    I had Roxio v7.5 and an un-install and re-install fixed it.

    Use VLC Media Player, it plays 99% of the stuff out there.
