PSI listed Cyberlink PowerDVD 3.x as EOL and my DVD player will not work without it on my XP machine.
Can someone suggest a free replacement such as an open source type DVD software that would be best?

Hello @davebrigg ,

Here is an old thread about another DVD player which was "EOL" :-

The problem is looked at early on concerning codec packs to play DVD's in Windows Media Player and and other player replacements .

An option , if you have the $ would be to upgrade to the latest version on offer from Cyberlink :-

Here's a link (can also be found in the first thread link) to Gizmo's website's review of free players :-

Hope this will give you some ideas .


PS: I currently use DivX player for my needs .


It always seems impossible until its done.
