First what needs to be known, were there any software/hardware changes made prior to your first noticing the problem?
Do you have Windows Automatic Updates enabled? (Personally I don't like when Windows tries to "help" me, by using the updates. Some older software does not work properly after such updating of Windows.)
What DVD player software or decoder(s) are you using?
Are your drivers for your sound card up to date?
Do you notice any other sound related problems?
Could this be due to any recent changes to your settings?
What configuration do you have in the way of audio output? (I.e., how many speakers do you have?)
Is this a new sound card, or video card?
It is possible that say if you have only 2 speakers, but the DVD is trying to play Surround sound audio, it will not "sound right" if it is not decoded properly down to 2 channnels, for instance.

I did uninstall a player that I didn't like. I'm not sure if the problem was only after I uninstall the program or not.

What I would try to do, is completely uninstall WinDVD, then reinstall it.
Have you attempted to use the System Restore function? You could try that, as an alternative to the uninstall/reinstall of WinDVD.

Is it onboard audio or a sound card?
