    Hey guys.
    I was wondering what the best codec to use with WMP 10 to play DVDs.
    I have PowerDVD 4.0 but was looking for something a bit newer or updated.
    I'm also looking for free alternative then having to purchase a codec.
    Do any exist?
    Any defiant codec packs to install?


    Thanks
    Just looking to see what you guys use to get best video and sound out of WMP10!
    Or other alternative to use to view videos on my computer.
    Are there any good guides on playing DVDs on computers

    Thanks

    As for a decoder for WMP10 - I just have WinDVD since it came with my system, and I've found no reason to change.
