    Im a bit curious.

    I have divx running with out a hitch (use mediaplayer ocx thingy).

    I havent tested it for dvd but i dont see why it shouldnt be possible to use the media player for dvd playback ??

    I cant test this since my dvd playing machine is in bits, but as far as i can see all you have to do is tell mediaplayer which file on the dvd to play ? or am i missing something here ?

    btw i use winamp for mp3 so i never noticed the sound problem

    Mp3 V: erhm could you enlighten me a bit here. As far as i know ms has decided to include dvd support in the mediaplayer, and thus the mediaplayer ocx should work ?

    Is it just the way i think i can activate the media player when it comes to dvd or wont dvd work at all.

    Well i just went out and did a little searh, and found a few things. It appears that the media player for windows xp directly support dvd playback and i found this link

    http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/717/

    That says it will enable mediaplayer to do dvd. I have no clue to whether it works or not.

    I will "steal" my girlfriends portable tomorrow and test on that since its got dvd drive.

    it wont work. All that does is tell the OS that u have a DVD codex driver intstalled (hint: windvd/cinemaster/powerdvd). By default when u run media player it detects the drivers....if it is installed then it turns on the DVD module in media player.

    MY DVD module is turned on and I can add the mswebdvd ocx into vb. But when I try and play a dvd all I get is a black screen, followed by mediaplayer locking up. I'm just downloading windvd to see if this helps the situation... The last time I played with DVD playback was in windows me with power dvd 3, which incidentally worked fine like this. Ahh well - back to the drawing board...

    Well, yes and no with this - yes if your dvd disc (not drive) is region free (region 0) or if you're playing back a file from the hdd which you have de-css'd. However, mediaplayer can't do MPEG 2 decoding so still needs a direct show filter from a software dvd decoder such as windvd or powerdvd to do it. Look out for the mswebdvd ocx file that sorts out everything for you!

    using win2000, and windvd, i have failed to make it work.

    For some reason, the mediaplayer just disappears (crashes silently) when trying to play a file from the dvd. if i copy the file to disk it will only play the sound and even the sound is VERY choppy.

    It doesnt appear to be a regional coding problem, the problem is the same with movies from different regions.

    sigh .. and i though this one would be the easy one

    back to the drawing board ...

    any suggestions to how to implement this ??

    Right - PowerDVD XP seems to work fine with mediaplayer as long as hardware accelleration is turned OFF. You cannot simply copy the dvd file to the hard disk as the file will still contain css region coding which will have to be removed using decss or clad dvd or the likes. Then, simply use the microsoft webdvd ocx (mswebdvd.ocx) to do everything - its quite simple.

    Let me know how you get on - or if you ever get hardware accellerated decoding to work!
