How to Activate Parental Control in Windows Media Player

By andrea allarey
You have DVD Videos that usually depict violence, horror, ***ual content, etc. You would not want your little children to view such videos while they are on your computer. If you use MS Windows Media Player to view such videos, a parental control tool can be deployed in order to activate the necessary restrictions. Here are the steps to activating

Parental Control in MS Windows Media Player:

Create an account user specific for your children. As you have logged in as Administrator, launch the Windows Media Player by clicking on Start menu>Run and keying the command wmplayer in the dialog box.

Click on the little arrow located under the tab “Reading in progress”. The list has an option labeled “Additional Options”, and selecting this option will launch a dialogue box. Click on the tab “DVD”, and then click the button “Modify” under “Restriction of the readings of the DVD”.

Afterwards, a list appears that has 9 options: “No”, “Any public”, “Level 1”, “Level 2”, “Level 3 - Prohibited at least of 12 years”, “Level 4”, “Level 5 - Prohibited at least 16 years”, “Level 6 - Prohibited at least of 18 years” and “Level 7 - Classified X”. Here, you can select the level of restriction that is most appropriate for the DVD video content.

Select Ok and press Enter to validate these changes.

After all the processes mentioned above is accomplished, go to the user account settings. At this point, change the account of your children to limited account so that they cannot adjust the modifications. Although this feature will filter a lot of DVD’s, remember that it is not applicable on all the DVD Videos in the market.
