If you love watching your favorite movies or have yet to be able to enjoy the same on your computer, then this is your chance. The DVD decoder that I have been using for years is the popular Windows Movie Maker which gives you the most flexibility and features out there in the free DVD decoder. It is not very complicated to use and is very user friendly. You can also add on other software that is available online like the DVD Smoother and DVD Coder.
After installing the DVD decoder to your computer, it is important that you know how to view the movie through your windows media player. You can either choose to right click on the DVD file and view it through windows media player, or you can go to the file menu and select play along. It is important that you know that the files will be recorded onto your hard drive and then converted into flicker. You will need the software from WMM to open these files, otherwise you will not be able to view them. I use WMM as my main windows media player because it allows me to view my movies easily through my windows system.
