Windows 7: I need DVD player software for WinXP

I need DVD player software for WinXP

I use my secondary PC with WinXP for gaming and media so I'm not tying up my Win7 PC with that while I can work on other things. Since I don't own a DVD player I want to use the XP PC for that, though I have very few discs to start with. Either way, VLC handles DVDs poorly. It takes about 2 minutes to get to the menu and trying to skip a chapter takes 2 minutes and freezes the player. The DVD drive isn't the issue, I can play DVDs just fine in Windows Media Player, but I am not a fan of this player(and frankly I never have been). I like VLC's functions more- double click full screen, spacebar to pause, etc.

Is there any other freeware option for DVD playback that'll give me the functions I need?

win x comes to mind, though I have never used it. Heard it used to be good. Look to google for other options.

How about giving PotPlayer a try?

Terrific universal player (I prefer it by far to VLC), though it has LOTS of customizations. I'll be glad to pass on my INI file for it, so you can start from somewhere. Let me know if you want it, or just get started yourself from scratch.
