What Mac do you own? What version of OSX? It's always in the Applications folder. It's called DVD Player.

does your Powerbook have a DVD Drive? If so there should be a DVD Player in Applications.

You can download a program called Pacifist that will allow you to find the DVD Player APP from your Tiger DVD and install it.

I just got this laptop used from a friend. Its kind of ironic because it has thousands of dollars worth of programs, but its missing apple dvd player.

Anyways, its not here...so I dont know...so far this VLC player is doing the trick.

Did the friend give you the install DVD for Tiger?

If so, I can help you get your DVD player installed.
