DVD in 10.1 on an unsupported Mac Desktop
I own a B&W G3 with the hardware DVD decoding system and was quite disappointed when 10.1 did not install the DVD Player. I tried copying the file from a machine of mine that it did install on, but alas, it gave me an error that it would not work.

All my disapointments disappeared today when I hit XLR8YourMac.com and read that it's possible to modify the DVD Player to work on unsupported machines. The hack is simple, and it seems to work well on my B&W (it does use 70% of the processor, but that's no big loss). Check out their DVD Player Mod page for all the details.

As of now, it seems that it's only been tested on Blue and White G3s, but I'm sure other machines will have reports of success or failure soon.
