I have just installed a dvd drive into my old PIII 533hz computer (Windows Me OS). When I tried to play a dvd, an error message came up saying no decoders installed. I went on t'internet and downloaded Cliprex and VideoLan. The dvd player now plays, but is pretty jerky and unwatchable. I have lowered the screen resolution (does nothing) and closed all background applications (again, no change). VideoLan audio is also very hissy. Any ideas on how to fix this? Or any good free decoders/players out there?

Hi,

I would have a look and see if you got a software DVD player on the drivers disk with your graphics card (or even with your dvd drive). If you haven't, I use powerdvd and it works well for me.

Cheers for the input, unfortunately I took the dvd drive out of an old IBM computer and have no software drivers with it...

I also have no software for the graphics card anymore (doh!). I'm a bit loathe to spend any money on software if it might be the hardware thats the problem....
