I Have Power DVD. Came with the DVD Burner I installed.
Don't use Win DVD. Program has problems.

well, I've only supported it on the Dell systems at work, and it would freeze up, skip, and die on at least 50 % of our systems. Eventually even Dell stopped packaging it with our systems.
could have been the video card they installed, but something was definitely screwed up.

Just to watch DVDs? I use the regular "DVD Player" included in OSX...and the remote control that came with my MacBook Pro :)

DVD Player is included with all Macs. Like Greg said, I use the Mac Remote to control it. Just as good as a TV.

only reason i ask is because i was a bit dismayed to discover it isn't part of iTunes.

yes, i just discovered that. I just think it's unusual that iTunes plays CDs, but not DVDs.

Never really thought of it that way, but the stand-alone DVD player in OSX works great.

can't you just use Media player for windows? That seems to work for me - when I use pc's.
