Apple DVD Player 4.6.1 Sucks

Halloween is coming up, so tonight I tried to load The Evil Dead into the ol’ iLamp for a quick refresher, but DVD Player wouldn’t even mount the disk. Here’s how to fix that problem (originally found at the MacUpdate website):

You can fix it by downloading 4.6.0 here… you have to show contents of the installer package, extract the Archive.pax.gz file, and copy all of the files to their proper locations in the system folder. You will have to force some of the permissions to you as the owner in order to modify them. If you can’t overwrite a file, just rename it then copy the new one over.

I can confirm that Dave’s tip works as advertised. Proof is in the sick-as-hell screenshot taken tonight:
