Forget it, DVD play will NOT work over the network, unless you have a network DVD solution.

Hello,

Did you try to share the DVD rom drive over the network and configured all the other PCs to map to that drive. Once that is done try to open a secondary DVD media player on one of the clients. In the media player of that client, click file....then open...then click the drop down menu and select the drive that was mapped containing the DVD and select. If that doesn't work attempt to copy the DVD movie to the hard drive using a third party DVD copier, then you can play the movie over the network just like if you downloaded it from Kazaa.

I hope this helps...
