    I use VLC when I'm not using DVD Player, it works a treat.

    Why?

    Title says it all. ;)

    In other words, please explain in more detail your issues with DVD Player so that the forum members can provide better help.

    Here is my main reason. Apple's DVD Player is bad at deinterlacing to a degree that is as baffling as it is inexcusable. Some interlaced DVDs actually look better with deinterlacing turned off. For these, I use VLC. Otherwise, though, the features of Apple's Player are pretty convenient and VLC can be awkward and flaky.

    Thx!

    As to the why: I like having other alternatives. One of my friends had VLC fail on him, and he kept having some weird problems with DVD player, so I thought it would be nice to see how other players would react to the dvd.
