    While OSX's DVD Player isn't all that bad, it could use some more features (like 5.1 audio support [​IMG])
    Is there any way that it can be determined if it is there or not?

    5.1 Support is there. Apple sells the Logitech 5.1 speaker system on the Apple Store and mentions optical hookup. No way that happens without DD support in the OS.

    I would tell you but I haven't been able to try it due to my iBook Combo drive not reading DVDs. Maybe I'll try now and see if it works...

    i've noticed a great new feature where mine doesn't have an icon and it "unexpectedly quits" when trying to launch.

    doesn't matter for me though, as i don't have a DVD drive

    That's probably why it crashes on load.

    Did you have to insert a DVD to get that? I just opened the app and saw plain old Dolby Surround.

    The only other new feature I can find is that you can make the info window and the closed captioning transparent (a user contollable amount). You can only do this on a Quartz Extreme enabled Mac. I can't post a shot of it as Grab will not take screen shots when a DVD is playing :(
