DVD Decoder

Is there a free decoder downlaod that will allow me to play retail dvd’s on my computer. It is a new work laptop that will not allow viewing of movies. Windows XP.

Try Videolan VLC.

Is that the link or just your signature? Not very tech savvy. Thanks for the help.

That link is in my sig so nothing to do with with this topic.

I was going to say Google for it but I’m in a friendly , helpful mood today so here is the link you need.

Thanks for the link.

Does VLC come with an included dvd-video codec?

It should be able to play a DVD without any installed codecs I believe.

This is a quote from their webpage:-

It supports a large number of multimedia formats, without the need for additional codecs
