It plays in my computer and is in English (the text has German versions too).
It does not play in my regular DVD player, in the living room, but it does
play in a little portable DVD player. I have no idea why.

If you have a Mac, you will probably have problems watching it. I'm not sure
what the issue is, with Macs playing DVDs.

I got the DVD 2 weeks ago...Amazing!! You just get more respect for the builders of these instruments. I love the scene where he uses a saw... with that saw most people wouldn't even saw their firewood...

there also a chapter where Kumar Banerjee explains the playing technique of the veena... And chapters explaing the tools.

Highly recommended
