Using wish i were (?) for dvd's on unsupported machines

is it possible to use Wish I were (or wish I was) to make a Computer think it has a DVD Decoder/ have enough VRAM so that I can try to force a system to use DVD player by apple? Or does anyone know How i can get DVD player in either OS 9 or OS X to use the dvd player app.
I know that in OS X the DVD decoding is done by a plugin built into the app or system, and not Hardware decoder. I want to see if I can get the DVD Player to think I have 8MB VRAM, instead of the 6 that my PM G3 AIO has. I got the CPU up to 458MHz, and I know that DVD Player does a better job than VLC or another app does, as it is more efficient.

Anyone got any ideas?
