Hey, I am running OS 9, and using Apple's DVD player Z1-2.2. I have a G4 400 AGP with 128 megs o' ram. When I watch DVD's, I get ticks and pops in the sound every so often. I've tried rebuilding my desktop and resetting the PRAM. Nothing seems to stop the noise. I have also tried 3 different DVD titles, and still the same problem. If anyone has had this same problem, or knows a way to fix it, please drop a message.
-Thanks

Me too. I've only used DVD a couple of times to watch the one movie I bought to try DVD. All on a new G4-Radeon/DP500/320RAM/analog speakers.

Try turning off your sound sets in the Appearance Control Panel.

watching Eyes Wide Shut, clicking and popping, OS 9.0.4, turned off platinum sounds..."none" selected. As I said, the only DVD I have so far, but the disc is pristine.

Try turning off Virtual memory and anything else running in the background.

I'm running a G4 400, 192mb RAM, and had similar problems with DVD's... until someone told me to turn off Appletalk whilst watching movies. It works almost perfectly now.

"Try turning off your sound sets in the Appearance Control Panel."

After this you have to reboot. Worked for me!
