Re: what is a good dvd player that is free??
I just use Windows Media Player 10 to watch DVDs for now. It has Dolby DIgital support and the picture is very sharp compared to PowerDVD. Sounds good too. The Power DVD player that came bundled with my DVD burner is horrible. It turns out that it is a stripped down version of the orignal PowerDVD. The THX and DTS settings aren't there, speaker channels are missing, screen ratios are locked at minimal settings, what a joke. I got rid of that program. Then there's a button I can click to purchase the full version of the software. Come on, what are they thinking? I don't know who's in charge of providing this software (Newegg, LG, or PowerDVD), but they could've given us the full retail program. I'll bet WinDVD is better.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
