    Question What do you watch your dvds with?

    I'm currently setting up my new laptop (the new HDD for the desktop is some days away yet ). New OS - Vista Home Premium. Still getting to grips with some of it's nagging behaviour!

    What do you guys (and gals too, of course) use to play your DVDs on your 'puter? I previously used Nero 6 - can't remember the exact name, was it Showtime?

    I will need 'whatever' to be reasonably quick and uncomplicated to use in a relatively public environment!

    As aways - TIA.
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...

    Media player classic and or VLC are my two choices as between them they just about cover everything, and for burning I use Burnaware free or CDbruner XP which despite the name is not just for XP

    VLC or WMP

    WinDVD probably came with your laptop, you could use that too.

    Power DVD for movies, VLC for other little clips.

    Media player classic, mainly because you can adjust the screen size in every direction.

    And if you don't want to install any extra software, Windows Media Center does the job too (as I see you are/will be using Vista Home Premium),
