Hi

We have a Lord of The Rings DVD and would like to play it on the compaq laptop with winxp pro sp2 mobile Athlon 1800. But Windows media player can't do it. I have tried downloading lots of other media players, like VLC - which only play the audio and not video.

I downloaded a codec pack but now WMP says there is a copyright issue.

Are there any *working* freeware dvd players out there?

Thanks

Did VLC work after u installed the codecs?

WMP isnt that great for anything, without some kind of codec.

Have you got powerdvd?

We have the powerdvd 4.0 CD, but it is realy old and cumbersome.

Does VLC have a separate codec pack?

Pass, I dont use VLC. I use Powerdvd 6 and DVD x player, but this isnt free.
