Got a Netflix DVD of Fantastic Planet. Popped it in the DVD player, and it behaved a little weird. The warning screen came up, and then while that was still showing, there was a wooshy-tingly noise, as would accompany a distributor/studio logo. The animated menu showed up, but when I hit play, or selected a chapter, the video was black, but the audio played more or less normally (I could hear a few occasional stutters).
Stuffed it in the PS3 and it played perfectly normally (there *was* a distributor logo that went with the whoosh).
Is my DVD player dying? Exerting its taste in film? Demanding a dose of psychedelic drugs before showing the film? Rejecting some alien DVD codec?
