    best free basic dvd player application?


    Have any of you ever played with a *spit* Macintosh? Well, they have a dedicated application called "DVD Player" that plays DVDs, and NOTHING else. It is dead simple to use, and does not include useless and redundant features.

    Is there anything like that for Windows? I know I can use VLC, but I don't like it. I never need any of the other features, and all of the other features and playback options get in the way of quickly watching a DVD.

    thanks.

    I guess I was quick to rule out VLC. It works perfectly fine, except for the fact that themes don't work in fullscreen mode (which is where I'll be using it)

    I can't honestly be the only person looking for a decent DVD playback app, can I?
