Good day, Yes there are legal reasons why SuSE cannot have DVD playback of those pesky movies, but what be done? Would it be too expensive for Novell/SuSE to license a codec? Seems like there is a new copyright law in Germany that has made PackMan be more cautious. No one has made a player for Linux that is 100% legal, is it due to expense? Matt

Au contraire. There is PowerDVD, which ships with TurboLinux 10F, and there is LinDVD from the makers of WinDVD, which I don't think is actually sold to consumers but was shipped to OEMs as long ago as 2000 in what I think was termed a 'technology preview'
