Chapter 19. Watching DVD Movies > Watching DVD Movies on the Mac

Watching DVD Movies on the Mac

DVD movies are the latest and best way to watch movies. Because they are digital, the image and sound quality of DVD movies is superb. And, the digital format enables special features that can't be duplicated with other means, such as videotape. For example, with DVD movies, you can get true 5-, 6-, or even 7-track soundtracks to provide unbelievable surround sound and sound fidelity. Plus, DVD discs usually have lots of features, such as missing scenes, trailers, and so on.

Note

Watching DVD movies from a desktop Mac is OK, but DVD movies on the Mac really shine when you use a PowerBook or iBook. Forget the crummy selection of movies that are usually shown on airplanes (even when there are movies) that you can't see or hear anyway. With Mac OS X and a mobile Mac, you can watch movies anytime, anywhere. If you travel a lot, you might find that this is reason enough to get your own mobile Mac. And waiting for just about anything will never be the same. With a mobile Mac and your favorite DVD, time is never wasted.
