    Is there any software available for OSX (Leopard) that will play HD-DVDs? I know DVD Player plays HD-DVDs but only ones authored by apples own software.

    HD-DVDs actually require different hardware than normal dvds and apple, as far as I know, doesn't sell the hardware as of yet

    Well, the Xbox360 drive works in Leopard, I can browse the files and such on HD-DVDs.

    Sorry I should have confirmed I have the physical hardware but as of yet I can't seem to find a non windows solution in playing the damn things. I really don't want to put windows on my mac.

    Hopefully when DVD Player becomes Blu-ray compatible Apple will throw in HD DVD support as well.

    I really doubt that will happen now it is a obsolete format, I thought some third party may have released a piece of software that allowed us to play it though. Quite annoying if they haven't as it is something I would pay for.
