    Play DVDs
    Hi,

    I have an external HDD where i have backed up DVD movies to from a pc laptop, and i want to know what application would be the best to watch the movie files on, on my iBook.

    Would i be best turning the Movie files into an image before i attempted to watch them?

    Thanks heaps...

    If you just copied the whole disc to a folder on the drive, I would I use VLC. You can find it here.
