DVD player, where is it?

'Me Too'

Frankly I'd be interested to see if osx can even handle DVD playback on my DV iMac. It seems to struggle with QuickTimes and afaik Mach is no 'realtime kernel' for accurate media playback.

Apple has marketted many of it's machines as DVD ready, I can't see how they can skip support. But.. as I said.. I'd be interested to see if it's even technically feasible.
Not only is Apple going to support DVD playback in X, rumor has it that the next iMovie like X applications will be DVD authoring apps.

X Public Beta struggles with QuickTime because it is highly unoptimized. Just be patient :)
