Default Windows NT Dvd playing software

Hi all,

hoping someone can help me.

My computer at work has a dvd drive and Windows NT (with administration restrictions to boot) hence no Direct X.

I can't download & try lots of diffferent players (I've done about 10 so far with no luck) because it will raise suspicion with the network admins.

Does anyone know of any free DVD playing software compatible with Windows NT?

Hope to hear from you soon

hey guys,

thanks for the replies

I've tried upgrading WM player (we've only got some v basic version on there) but the access limitations don't allow me to do it. I can write to C:\ and everything, but there's something they've disabled that stops me installing the new ver

was hoping there was something like WinDVD that works without DirectX, but I guess they've done this so I'll actually do some work and not watch films all day long
