VLC Media Player is probably the best free DVD Video software that is free out there online. It has a great equalizer preset bunch, you can stretch the video anyway you want it, and the volume control to 200 percent actually works. It's pretty awesome. Anyways, whenever I insert a DVD, only like 24 percent of the time will it actually load into VLC. I click on File>Open DVD>Play File and it tries and loads and then just freezes the program or does nothing. The only trick I have found is to pick it from AutoPlay if that pops up. It usually plays then, but sometimes not. Is there something I am doing wrong or doesn't the program recognize copy protected DVDs that well? Most of the ones I try to watch are fairly new and probably have advanced copy protection on them. The thing is, no matter what it always loads into Windows Media Player just fine. But I like to watch them with VLC because of all the customization in it is fantastic. Please help!
