DVD Playback and Analog Copy protection on Vista solved

I wrote previously about how I couldn’t get a DVD to playback on Vista due to my video driver and card not being HDCP Compliant and throwing an analog copy error.

I found a dead simple work around — just don’t use Windows Media Player.  Instead, I installed VLC Player and it plays the DVDs without any problems.  Ugh, why is DRM such a pain in the butt?
