I have recently been unable to play/edit any of the video clips on my Dell Inspiron PC running Windows 10. All was fine until December/January, when I created a DVD from a recent holiday. I have 2 apps which now will not play or allow me to edit the remaining video.
I get an error box saying I have "insufficient graphics capabilities" & "the video card and/or driver does not fully support DirectX 9" and I should upgrade/update one or both (Windows 10 has DirectX 12).
From other sources I believe there is an updated driver for my Intel HD 4400 graphics card but Intel say I should consult Dell before installing this update.
I would appreciate any advice anyone can give.
The error is because directx 9 and 10 drivers are needed.
Also DVD codecs are REMOVED from WIN10 they want you to pay $14 TO $100 for them all over again. Windows media player is also removed as is windows movie maker.
