Panther, Media player 9, and Apple DVD player.

I know this sounds a tad odd, but here is my scenario. I have a Sawtooth 450, 640 megs of pc100 ram, a radeon 7000 pci mac edition video card, and a pioneer 104 superdrive. When I installed Panther, I could play DVDs just fin, very smooth, not chunky stuttering. Then, I installed Window Media PLayer 9, then the DVD playback trouble started. I get very stuttery playback, and loss of sync with the sound.

What I would like to know is, is there any way I can find out if MP9 disabled ATIs hardware DVD decoding, and if so, how can I re-enable this so I can go back to happy DVD watching land.

Just so you know, I didn't install MP9 in my Jaguar install, and I can watch DVDs in Jag just fine. Thanks in advance for any help you are able to give.
QUOTE Thanks
