DVD plays on DVD player but not on PC

I have a BBC produced DVD (Gaugin: The Full Story) that I have tried to play on my PC using MediaPlayer and also RealOne Player. In each case the DVD opens to the intro screen but when I select 'Play' both MediaPlayer and RealOne stop with 'Program Not Responding'.
I am running under XP-SP2 and have had the same results on a friends PC.
The DVD plays perfectly on my TV using a normal DVD player.
Anyone got any suggestions?

Try any of the many dedicated DVD player programs available [making the assumption the you do have a DVD player on the machine- I assume you have- because you got as far as opening screen]
Power DVD is probably the most common, but lots of freeware out there too-
A Google search will reveal aLL

I used PowerDVD that came with the EMachines PC and that worked

To add to my reply above,in the end it was my graphics that was causing the problem,appears the built in decoder wasn't compatible with Power DVD and WMP.
