Looking for free dvd software player

Found 10th Mar 2006
I have PowerDVD6 on my system, but there is a problem with the audio.

Wonder if you guys know of any free dvd video software players?

A really good one is VLC media player (a.k.a. Video LAN) available >>HERE<<. It's totally free and it plays ANYTHING, be it streaming online, DVD or a clip you've downloaded.

It'll even make a good attempt at reading discs with *minor* damage and also incomplete files.

alternatly you can view DVD's in windows media player

if you download the correct pugin (if you want it i can send it to you)

its a tad naff watching it in media player compared to powerDVD
I recommend VLC also, it works really well with divx/xvid etc. and on Windows/Linux/OSX

I don't really use it with DVDs but I'm sure it works fine with them too. I think I read somewhere that you can get around some region locking with VLC too.
It's good for playing DVDs too, I've used it for that many times with no problem.

It's really quick too because it doesn't have lots of graphics like Windows Media player of Power DVD. You can change the look, but it's got a very plain interface which allows the software to work much faster.

again nicked from another site, haven't used it myself though:

I reckon this is worthy of a mention. I also tried out the conversion tool which is so comprehensive, quick and creates small but smooth files. Only problem seems to be a 'watermark' on the middle of the picture (they want you to buy/ register the product) which might be wirthwhile considering how easy it is to use and the results it produced. Anyway the DVD player software is completely free - so if you don't have PowerDVD yet then this Free player is amazing.

Thanx guys!!

Will have a look at them all!
'K' on it's way as soon as time limit is gone....
