I had a go at it over the weekend. They quite explicitly say that there's
no stable version, and I believe them. I followed the instructions and was
eventually able to play "The World is Not Enough" with a *lot* of skipping
(i.e. every second or so). Getting it to start is a bit of a business and
there's close to no control. However, there's relatively little direct
interaction with the files on the DVD, so that's something.
