Vmware worstation rel 9 -- now plays DVD's perfectly in a VM

Hi there
DVD playing and some other multi-media now plays just fine in VM's created with workstation version 9.

This means some of your older games might actually run in a VM now -- but obviously if actual hardware calls are made to your video card then these still won't work.

I haven't tried Blu Ray physical disks yet as I don't have a physical DVD player on the machine I'm testing VMware workstation on but standard DVD ISOs mounted as a Virtual DVD drive play just fine as do HD files and AVI files.

Earlier releases of VMware workstation had problems with this type of stuff.

Cheers
