DVD is becoming a very important medium in the world of computers. The amount of space on one DVD is so large that it just can't be ignored. Most graphic cards offer some sort of DVD-Video playback, such as the ATI Rage Fury which does a lot of the decoding in hardware. The Matrox G400 is no exception, but it doesn't use hardware decoding just software in the form of the Matrox DVD Player. This player is actually just the cinemaster software engine with a new skin.

"How Dare You Break Wind Before Me" - "Sorry Baby, I Didn't Know It Was Your Turn"

The cinemaster engine is excellent for DVD playback and combining it with the G400 you are in for a visual treat as it manages to offer some of the best software DVD playback I have ever seen.
