I have win vista home basic running on my mini. It worked fine.
I did it so I could learn vista, etc....

I put a video DVD in the drive and let it auto play.
It opened WMP and stopped saying I couldn't play it. I needed a decoder.

Suggestions?

From what I've read windows home basic doesn't include a DVD decoder. Check out this link http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx

WOW......

I see Microsoft's point. Why would anyone paying $199.99 for an OS want to watch DVD movies on it. Only advanced users would want that.

I can understand why it won't take a BD disc, but a DVD movie??
Oh
Come
On!!!

Isn't there a free alternative?

http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/01/19/download-free-vista-codec-package-423/
might be worth a look never tried it myself by it says its free and has a DVD decoder, also VLC for windows would probably be the best bet. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
