Hi all
The latest version of VMware workstation allows the playing of DVD movies -- This never worked on previous versions of VMware workstation (up to and including rel 7 / VMware player rel 3).

This means you should be able to play DVD's on W7 Virtual Machines run on Host Linux / W8 / Mac OS'es.

Note you need the VM to be in FULL SCREEN Mode.
