So i'm sitting here at work bored as all get out.  Thank god they finally unlocked forums and facebook.  Anyway, I got to thinking it would be very nice to be able to watch a movie or 2... or 8 hours worth... on a saturday when there's nothing to do.  Unfortunately the don't have the codec required to watch dvds via the windows media player on the PCs. 
 
I thought I heard somewhere that you could install VLC or other software to a flash drive and could then use it to watch dvds on computers like the ones i'm on.  Is there any truth to that and is there any trick to it besides just designating the flash drive as the installation point when installing the program?
 
I'm pretty sure I'd be a hero here at work if I could some how watch movies on the weekends.
