Can you recommend a good dvd player download and link.

I have just downloaded the latest version of Real Player onto the computer, and for some reason it does not want to work?.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks guys, looks like I will be downloading VLC, and give that a try.

I used Real Player quite some time ago, and through some problem or another took it off the compute. Thought that I would give it another try today, but had problems, which could be Real Player or the computer?.

Thanks again, will tick this as resolved.

Not sure what as just happened, but I used the link Fruit Bat provided, and commenced to download, when Avast warned me of a suspect file, and recommended that I used Avast sandbox. Did that and everything seemed to commence to instal okay, then the system crashed, rebooted and a report was given via Microsoft as to what might have been the 'blue screen' problem.

Checked in XP Add/Remove, and no indication of programme download?.

I will try the link provided by eedcam, and see what happens?.

It would appear that when I tried to download the first time, I jumped the gun, by perhaps not downloading properly?.

Tried the second link and went to completion. Still cannot view a dvd, and get report error messages, so it looks like a problem with the computer, which I will try and sort out later.

Thanks once again for links and recommendation, much appreciated.
