You should try ripping the disc to your hard drive, decrypting it in the process. Either DVD Shrink (though you don't need to shrink it, set it for dual layer) or DVD Decrypter.

Once you have a clean, bullshit-free copy on your HD, it should play just fine. Pointless copy protection and such are major causes of compatibility issues. There's always a way around them, so they only succeed in making life difficult for consumers such as yourself. Pointless!

Good luck :)

I think its because its a dual layer disc. If you look in My Computer, its over 8GB!

return the DVD, it's not worth the money. Buy milton keynes or live at wembly for the real queen.

He's just kidding. He knows this is the best sounding DVD release of 'em all.

yea, I'm just not crazy about return of the champions, it's like a decent imtitation. There's a few good moments like "last horizon" and rogers drum solo let there be drums.

Let there be drums is awesome,
To be honest I would rather drum solos than guitar solos... But then again I'm a drummer...

Me too! Whenever I watch his guitar solo on wembley, i literally fall asleep. :( Ironically enough, when he played it at the concert I loved it, and I adore Brighton Rock....

I've also had problems with the DVD. On my PC it plays fine until the the layer change, then it stalls. On my DVD player there are also some problems with playback during the latter half of the show. I also tried it with my Playstation and no problems there. Could the disc have some sort of copy protection although the cover fails to mention such thing?
