DVD Player Helper 1.0 reviewDownload
Beginning with the Power Mac G4 AGP (“Sawtooth”) machines, Apple introduced version 2.
Beginning with the Power Mac G4 AGP (“Sawtooth”) machines, Apple introduced version 2.0 of the Apple DVD Player software. This version (and subsequent releases) of the Apple DVD Player do not require DVD decoding and playback hardware in order to play DVD video disks.
However, at the same time, Apple introduced a limitation into the DVD player: if you have MacsBug (Apple’s machine-level debugger) installed, the Apple DVD Player will display an error message, and then exit.
The DVD Player helper performs exactly one function: it allows to use the Apple DVD Player software to watch DVD videos on a Mac on which MacsBug is installed.
All you have to do is drag the "DVD Player Helper" extension file onto your active System Folder and restart the machine.
