    Whenever I try to play the cast commentary (disc 1) in the Panther DVD player, it crashes. Could someone else please try it and see whether it works?

    Edit: Same thing happens on disc 2. I haven't tried any of the other commentaries yet, but they all work fine on my real DVD player.

    Simpsons Season 3

    Interesting -- I came across the same problem when I tried to watch my Simpsons season three box set with Panther's dvd player. In a few of the episodes I was watching, the commentary track would cause an error and the program would shut down. I tried it several times and the error occurred at the same point each time. It plays fine in a regular DVD player, so I don't know what gives.

    I have both those movies mentioned but never watch movies on my computer so I don't know if there is a problem but I do know that Video Lan Client is a much more compatible and more capable DVD player then the Apple one.

    I'll have to try VLC. It was too slow on my G3/800, so I never used it, and therefore didn't consider it for playing this problematic movie. But I've got a G4/1.25 now, so it should be better.

    Interestingly, the commentary on FOTR plays fine :confused:

    It will probably work now on your G3 800 as well. VLC get regular and frequent updates. Some of the recent ones have brought about some vast improvements.
