I have vista home basic on my new (cheap) laptop and would like to be able to watch movies on it. Windows media in Vista Basic doesn't come with a movie player! So I went out and bought an inexpensive copy of Nero8 essentials that I thought had a movie player in it, but now I'm not sure. I have also tried to install it but it is supposedly corrupt, so now I am in somewhat the same boat.
Does anyone have any cheap/free suggestions to watch DVDs on Vista Basic?
