I was wondering if there is anyway to get video into my 17" G4 laptop? I ahve installed a DVD player in my car. I did not install a screen, because I really do not watch alot of movies while driving. I got the dvd palyer because of all the other functions it has. So I was wondering if there is anyway to hookup the video output from my dvd player to my laptop?

If I understand you correctly, you are looking for a way to use the 17" laptop display as a monitor for your in-dash DVD player? In which case no, I don't think so. There used to be a laptop capture card called CapSure that IRez made that could also be used as a direct video input that filled the screen. Pretty neat, but the Zoomed Video support it needed to work stopped being included in the 667MHz and faster laptops. Too bad, I still have a couple of those somewhere.
