Hello

I rented a movie and i am trying to play it on my computer but it won't play. Usually they start up automatically but this one doesnt. Even when i hit the play button on the main menu on the movie nothing happens ?

UPDATE

I changed my default media player to windows media player but when i tried to play the movie i got this below

"Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer."

I think some newer DVD's have "improved" copy protection to prevent you from copying/playing them on a computer.

Thanks John

Well i can understand copying but why stop people from playing a movie, what if a person's computer monitor and computer are the same, can i find a decoder for this
