Wait Wait Wait. We need to use the NOT FREE Nvidia DVD Decoder inorder to get full video utilization??? So those of us who have already paid for PowerDVD and more than an $500 for a 6800, need to spend more $$$ on a propreitary DVD Decoder? :banghead:

So are there two different 67.03s drivers, or they haven't changed nothing at all and just updated the release notes cos they forgot to do it?

Good news. I had a feeling that the video processor being broken rumor was FALSE. Now this confirms it. I guess we have all been using pure video since we installed the 67.03 driver, nvidia just didnt tell us. You rule Nvidia. The geforce 6 series rules!!!! (cheers)

I don't think nvidia really wants to charge money for it, rather they are forced to. In order to create any dvd playing software, you have to pay royalties to the DVD-CCA for every single player sold, or else you'll get your ass sued off. Not only that but you also have to pay royalties for DTS, AC3, and a number of the other audio features which are patented by various companies.

This is why legal freeware dvd players don't exist.

Freeware players exist, but legal freeware players don't exist.

In fact the price nvidia charges looks about right. At $20 you'll barely cover the royalty fees. In fact I would venture to guess that nvidia is taking a slight loss (maybe in the area of a few pennies per sale) on selling this because of the overhead of running an online credit card system.

You still get video hardware support even if you dont have nvdvd decoder. Just not every feature. Seeing as how I dont watch DVD's on my pc, it works out great for me.

NV40 GPUs does not have hardware decode acceleration for WMV9 HD, so that feature is broken alright.

You know, the NVDVD player app looked familiar (seen nya (http://www.nvidia.com/docs/CP/2517/nvdvd20.jpg)) and I just realized that my e-vga 6600GT included the player in one of its CD's. I never noticed this before because whenever I install all of my hardware I never touch any of the included CDs because they always end up being worthless :D

Some of you may be in the same boat as me, check your included CDs and you might have it already.

I'll install it and see if I can patch it to the latest version.

BTW: screw WMV9. If you have a 6800GT I wouldn't bother worrying about it.

See, SD/HD hardware accelerated decode and display processing is mentioned for NV41 and NV43 based video cards, which NV40/NV45 cards only has SD/HD display processing including Gamma Correction and Color Space Conversion, NO hardware acceleration decode.

Yeah, with my GT im not worried about it. I would just like to see some proof that it is broken, thats all.
