    I just got this used computer, with WinXP pro. When I try to play a DVD using Windows Media Player, I get "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer."

    So where do I get such a decoder?

    Or is there an equally good freeware alternative to Media Player?
