Re: Play DVDs on RealPlayer or VLC Players?

As was posted earlier, my Vista Home Premium will not play DVDs in
Media Player like it's supposed to (colored, blocky video). It may
be the CODECS, but I'll play with that later. Meanwhile, can I
download free RealPlayer or VLC and play DVDs, or do these need an
extra set of CODECS to play commercial DVDs?

I'm at a loss -- my super-duper Vista Home Premium SHOULD play DVDs,
but no...


VLC should play the DVDs.
