Microsoft Corp says that the third beta of Windows 98, available now, has full support for Digital Video Disk technology. The DVD integration comes as a result of collaborative work between Microsoft and Toshiba Corp. Toshiba provided a DVD decoder minidriver, player application and sample code, and the whole project was referenced on a Toshiba DVD board with its own single-chip system processor. Microsoft says Beta 3 will support Toshiba hardware, while support for other DVD will be added before the official release of Windows 98 in the spring.
