    And we don't want to get SitePoint in trouble by linking to a DVD decoder, as one site did.

    But DVD decoders are pretty easy to find. Just search Google for "DVD decoder" or something like that.

    DVD-Decoders are illegal. They use a protected algorithm (I think it is something DCS-10 or something like that).....

    Whatever, maybe I'm saying the wrong thing. But if you go to cnet.com you can find a ton of them for free free to download.

    Here's what a search for "dvd decoder" on download.com shows: http://download.cnet.com/downloads/1...r&cn=&ca=10001

    There's one sound improvement thingy, one AVI-to-MPEG converter, one MPEG player, and an MPEG editor.

    Are you talking about the thing that turns DVDs into VOBs, or VOBs into AVIs? Or a DVD player?

    I think some of us were a bit confused about what you meant by DVD "decoder".

    A DVD decoder is certainly not illegal (unless it was made illegally). However, obtaining a full version of one unlawfully, as with any software, is.

    There are DVD software decoders and DVD hardware decoders. The hardware decoders are found in standalone DVD players and DVD decoder cards.

    I assume you want software decoders.

    You can find some here, but you won't be able to get any free ones that aren't limited by time. This is because of the cost of licensing the decoder technology.
