Download the K-Lite Codec Pack Standard Variant or purchase a decoder from one of the aforementioned vendors, install it and you will be able to play DVDs in Windows Media Player. Simply launch Windows Media Player, click Play → DVD, VCD, or CD Audio, make sure the DVD is inserted, and select your DVD drive.
Secondly, how do I get Windows Media Player to play a DVD on Windows 10? First, download and install the software from the VideoLAN VLC Media Player website. Launch VLC Media Player from its Start menu shortcut. Insert a DVD, and it should rev up automatically. If not, click the Media menu, select the Open Disc command, choose the option for DVD, and then click the Play button.
Subsequently, question is, why does my DVD not play on Windows Media Player?
If you see an error from Windows Media Player that says "compatible DVD decoder not installed," this means that a plugin (called an mpeg-2 decoder) needed to play DVDs is not installed. We recommend downloading this software from www.videolan.org in order to play DVDs on your computer.
