    So, I made a DVD with some images presentations on iDVD, but when i went to my vista pc, windows media player wouldn't play it. It said it needed a decoder like mpeg-2, but i don't know how to get this. Does anyone know how to do that?

    Can you play any other video DVDs with your Windows Vista computer?
    Didn't any DVD player software come with your computer, like PowerDVD or something similar?

    Btw, video DVDs use MPEG-2 as codec and also have AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders with .vb., .ifo and .bup files inside the VIDEO_TS folder.

    Sound like you did not finalize your DVD.

    You don't get that option with iDVD. If you make a video dvd, ie one that will play in a standard dvd palyer, then it should play on any computer with a dvd drive.
