Yep, that's what I get too.
If you have any other DVD player, they work. PowerDVD 6 Deluxe plays the
copy protected, normal Hollywood movie DVD's fine. It just turns off Aero
while it runs, and Windows warns of a compatibility problem. Despite the
warning, it's fine. I needed to turn off the PowerDVD toolbar in its player
options, as it stays there without auto-hiding.
Nero 6 Ultra Edition's Nero Showtime works too. I've read that VLC
MediaPlayer works on Vista. That's supposed to be a good free alternative.
I'm guessing it's some problem of interaction with all the not really ready
for Vista Video/Audio drivers that are available.
My Visualizations in WMP 11 also are a problem. They only work for cd's,
but not my mp3's in my Music folder. This is probably a driver interaction
problem. I have the Audigy 2 ZS XP driver and AudioConsole installed. If I
toggle to a different Audio Quality setting in Windows PlayControl (16/44 or
16/48) I can get visualizations for one song before they disappear again.
