XP/2000/2003: Play DVDs in Windows with Free Decoder Software

Posted October 21, 2005 by AlexTheBeast in Windows

Buying expensive DVD playing software is no longer necessary.  Packages are available for free.


You no longer have to pay high prices for DVD software for your system. Now, several free packages are available.

Video LAN is an impressive piece of software IMHO. It will play DVDs (and almost every other media file) without problems. It supports over twelve operating systems.

Equally impressive is MPlayer. It plays DVDs and most other media files without issues. Multiple translations are available.

Zoom and BSPlayer are both free players that have pro versions that you can purchase. I have used them, and they work well.
