Hi burnface

I don't know what the best DVD player software is as such, its normally down to user preference. I tend to use Cyberlink PowerDVD so that I can enable hardware playback on my graphics card which can lower the cpu load on the computer itself. WinDVD i never really cared for. There are many out there but if you want a complete home cinema solution I would install powerdvd and enable hardware playback then use Windows Media Center. I do this to play HD and DVD movies along with avis (divx/xvid) all utilising the hardware playback indeuced by the power dvd settings.

Try a few out, most of them have trials available or basic version. Get a feel for what you like. Other options are:

Windows Media Player
Zoom Player
Media Player Classic

and many many more, use google its your friend, see what you like and don't like. Its all a personal thing to what you find easy to use rather than their capabilities as most are pretty much on par with each other as far as quality is concerned, but that all depends on your setup and the video/audio codecs you have installed.

Hope this has helped rather than confuse you more!
