Question Free Vista compatable DVD codec?

I just upgraded to Vista Business, but that version of Vista doesn't play DVD's. It tells me I need a DVD Codec, and offers some suggestions of ones to buy. I want to be able to play DVD movies using windows media player, and would like to be able to use my dvd burner to burn home movies I made using windows movie maker. Anyone else using Vista Business along with any free DVD codec without any problems? If so, can you tell me which DVD codec you are using please? Thanks.

No, I actually have Ultimate, so I don't need it. Give it a try though, it can't have gotten this for nothing:
