My iMac doesn't have an internal DVD drive. Thus, it won't install Apple DVD Player so I can use it with an external DVD drive.

How do I get around this so I can play DVDs on my iMac with an external DVD drive?

you can install DVD Player with Pacifist (search VersionTracker.com), but my external DVD drive wasn't recognized by the player application in 10.2.1 any ideas? it worked in 10.1.5...

Video Lan Client will play DVDs in OS X. It worked fine for me with my iMac DV.

I have a DV400 iMac, but it doesn't say anything about having a DVD drive, does your have a DVD drive or can you still use videolan client?

I am currently using the Apple DVD Player application with an external firewire DVD drive which I put together myself. Working fine on my G4 iMac 700MHz CD-RW.

You can install the DVD Player application using Pacifist. There is a link to a patch on the www.xlr8yourmac.com web site in the DVD FAQ section.
