Re: Dave Matthews featuring Tim Reynolds 1999-03-24 VH1's Storytellers (NTSC)

I've split these comments from the main thread and moved them to Technobabble, where they belong....

The audiotrack on this DVD is using AC3 (Dolby Digital), which won't play back on many software packages. I don't know what elecard is, but realplayer certainly won't be able to render AC3 audio.

If you're playing back DVD-Videos on your computer, I recommend using a true DVD playback software and directing it to the Video_TS folder in file mode. Any useful package designed for playing DVDs will contain an AC3 decoder.

For a freeware option, I recommend VLC:

I personally use PowerDVD 4, which came with my DVD drive, and it can play ac3 and everything else well. WinDVD is another option for pay-for-use software.
