DVD player and laptop?

Hi All!

I just want to know if I can join my DVD player to my laptop to use the laptop just as a TV screen.

If it is possible, what cables or any accessories do I need? What are the steps?

You will need a video capture device. If your laptop has a PCMCIA slot, then you could fit a PCMCIA video capture card such as this click here, otherwise you can get an external usb video capture device such as this click here. However most laptops have a DVD drive, and this would give much better results.
