I installed Platinum on my system which has Windows Media Player 9, PowerDVD XP 4.0, Interactual 2.0(from the T2 Extreme DVD disc 2) and DVDXCopy Gold. After installing Platinum Interactual reports a CSS error when you attempt to play a disc. Windows Media player reports a Digital Rights problem. PowerDVD works fine. Tried un-installing and re-installing PowerDVD, no difference. Un-installed Platinum, everthing works fine. I didn't realize Platinum was the problem until I was about to send a tech support message to InterActual. The website captures the system state and I noticed that it reports the default DVD Decoder as being located in the ...\321Studios\Platinum\... directory. This info caused me to suspect that Platinum was being used as the default DVD Decoder by both Media Player and InterActual, so I remove Platinum and this solved the problem.

Normally, the loss of Media Player and InterActual would be no big deal since PowerDVD still works but you have to have these two programs to the play the Hi-Definition disc from the T2 Extreme DVD set.

I searched but I couldn't locate how to define the default DVD Decoder. Any suggestions?

dvdjunkie,
You may want to uninstall the InterActual Player from your system and then try.This is a Player like you stated by the movie companies that wants you to load when the disk is installed,I always choose Cancel.

Hi toolman,

Thanks for the suggestion but the problem is the T2 Extreme DVD disc 2 is a High Definition version of the movie that can only be played on a PC DVD and only with Windows Media Player 9 and InterActual player installed.
