Right now there is a video called Gladiator in the laptop, but there is a snag. I rejoiced when the new video technology made it possible to use video game machines and lap tops to play movies so that I/we was no longer dependent upon DVD players. Now, here is the new technology question – Do I just not understand my new Philips TV properly and the movie will run using the PS3 but I still need to learn something new,….or, is this video encoded to prevent me from being to use on anything but a DVD so the DVD manufacuterers don’t completely run out of money. That’s that. I welcome any genuine responses and advice.
