Does anyone know of a really good DVD player besides Interactual? That's the one I use, and the text problems that I mentioned here:

Does anyone know how to fix the damn choppy word-appearing thing? Like the intro to chapter 11, for instance, when the words start appearing, it's really choppy-almost makes my player freeze. Then, when the animations start, the words are fine. Anyone know what I'm talking about?


Or it might be a problem with the drive itself. Just random sticks and nudges that irritate the crap out of me. Any suggestions on a better DVD player to use?

It might be choppy because of the heavily rendered particle effects in specific sections...could be slowing the player down

I hate playing the discs (ANY disc, really) on a computer - just feels like something is missing.

Windows Media Player does an OK job...grumblegrumble.

Yeah, don't use your computer. I've never liked any of the computer software for playing DVDs. Except maybe VLC.

Gracias.

Hmm...looks like I might actually have to buy a television now.

Oh, well.

I disagree, actually. I prefer dvd rom drives over standalone dvd players, simply because if you have good software to run them, they don't skip nearly as much as dvd players do. DVD rom's are much more advanced than dvd players, in the sense that they are able to read ahead of what's playing, and detect scratches before it encounters them, reading the disc at every angle to prevent skipping.

Does divx play dvds? Gotta love divx! XD
