You could try just reinstalling WMP9. Or, try installing an alternative application and see if that does the same. Does it matter which DVD you watch or do they all exhibit the same behaviour of no sound after 5 min?

is it every 5 minutes exactly?
i had the same problem and i couldn't figure out why - i had entered my licence information in for the decoder (windvd).

try uninstalling then reinstalling the decoder.

Windows Media Player does not require a licence as it is part of Windows.

Read all of what I said. Windows Media Player requires a decoder - which is not provided by Microsoft. You have to purchase a third party decoder.

Cyberlink's PowerDVD also hooks into Windows Media Player.

The trial version of PowerDVD does exactly what is described. Plays a certain amount of the audio then mutes, but carries on playing the video

Yup - I eventually just bought the add on decoder for powerdvd. Works very well with Windows Media Player. - Good for on the plane!
