Check out this /. discussion dealing with 3 of the most famous DVD players (LiViD, OMS, Videolan).
Actually, I tried the previous version (0.6.1) of videolan yesterday, and it ran really smoothly ! A few bugs, yet. But I couldn't achieve the same frame rate with the other 2 DVD Players.
I didn't try Xmovie.

Is VideoLan.org (http://www.videolan.org) up yet?

This project sounds intense..

There was something of a DVD-decoding race between two different Linux development groups..And this wasn't one of them to my knowledge.. These guys just popped up out of nowhere w/ wild claims about MPEG2.. Amazing.

I really would like to know more.
