Default S-Video IN, now what?

I'm trying to watch movies from my regular dvd-player, I've plugged into my Geforce FX 5950 the DVD via S-Video IN, but now? How can I watch the movies? It doesn't act like a plug-n-play device, so what player I should use and how to let the player use the S-Video Input?

Yeah, all things on a regular graphics card are to display OUT to another monitor, not bring a signal in.
