    vlc is great if you don't want to install anything and just execute the software. Otherwise I would strongly recommend KMPlayer as well as it is very well made and has literally too many functions :D

    Do any freeware programs support DTS or Dolby or do you only get that from paid for programs such as PowerDVD?

    I cannot test it but there are DTS options in KMPlayer. I don't know about Dolby however

    I hope you know how to configure your stuff though because the preferences menu in KMPlayer has tons and tons of options I don't understand ...

    have fun :D

    VLC is the best freeware so far for this :)

    VLC is great, it's the only media player that let's me watch DVD isos (of my legally bought DVDs mind you) with upscaling technology on a 1080p screen using my netbook.

    I'm gonna go against you guys - I hate VLC, it just feels so effortsome. I'd go with MPC-HC, although that's no better than your boggo standalone DVD player software.

    VLC is good but if its for HD movies then MPC is definately a better runner. the quality is noticeable in comparison .

    Another vote for MPC from me, personally find it to be much better than VLC.
