I recently installed Purevideo but I'm not sure it's working? If I open WMP 10 and go to plugins, the only thing listed is a nero burning plugin. How do I know the purevideo codec is working?

(I expect this is a monumentally stupid question) :)

When you play a DVD with WMP10 you will see the nvidia icon in your task bar if Purevideo is working

To lower CPU utilization when playing WMV HD videos you need to install the patch for WMP10...

When playing H.264 movie accelerated by NVIDIA, you should see a new small NVIDIA icon in your toolbar / tray. Clicking on it will give you this screen:

ALso the CPU utilization will be around 10%, or even lower..

I know this is a dumb question, but has anyone found a way to force-install WMP10 on Win2000, or get the WMP10 patch to work with WMP9. I recently re-imaged my comp, and only had my old Win2k image, have everything nicely set up and dont have room to install WinXP x64 again (and the trial licence is pretty much over).

Is it worth purchasing pure video, Because I'm getting tired of how crappy the DVDS are looking when im playing them.
