    I've recently upgraded my Beige G3 system to include a dvd drive, rage 128 video card w/ dvd decoder and installed OS 9.2.1. The Apple DVD player won't install (I keep getting an error message telling me that the installer "requires version 4.5.1 of the installer application.") for some reason and I can't find any 3rd party DVD player programs anywhere!

    Does anyone have any ideas on how I might get a DVD movie to play on my system? Can I get this installer to work or must I look for a third party player?

    Thanks,
    Christopher

    DVD hack instructions over on www.xlr8yourmac.com might help. Normally DVD Player 1.3 is what is "allowed" with that card. Maybe there is an ATAPI DVD drive that can be? X.1 lacks support on B/W G3 2/ DVD decoder and am hoping for X.2 support, but not holding my breath.

    Did you run a search on all of these Forums and Archives for DVD? I seem to recall someone else having a similar problem and hacking it.
