When codecs complain of 'No Hardware'

Simply plugging in the speaker cable should fix it 👍

This usually only happens with some audio decoders like the 'Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio Decoder'. What it means is the decoder couldn't find speaker output hardware, which most of the time is because your Windows speaker selection is set to something like 'Headphones' or 'Speakers (High Definition Audio Device)' but no headset or speaker cable is plugged into the jack, which on some computers makes the audio device completely 'disabled'.
