Enable DVD playback on a Beige G3 System
I upgraded my original beige G3 desktop with a 466MHz G3, an ATI 128 Rage Pro, and a Apple DVD internal drive over the years. These upgrades have worked fairly well, but I have alway been disappointed that DVD movie playback has never worked. When the DVD Player 3.0.1 update came out for 10.1, I was hopeful that my beige G3 would finally play DVDs since my mac now has almost the same spec as a B&W. But unfortunately the installer wouldn't recognize my mac.

This morning I saw the hint for "Pacifist" (an OS X version of "Tome Viewer"), and thought I'd give it another crack.

It worked beautifully. For the first time I am enjoying DVDs on me beige G3. Just download "Pacifist" and the Apple DVD 3.0.1 update. Use Pacifist to install the update and the balcony is open!


PS: I guessing that the update doesn't use the hardware decoding card on B&W G3s since my ATI card doesn't have one.
