I used to play DVD’s on my computer when I had Windows 7 installed but now that I have upgraded to Windows 10 I can’t play my DVD’s. I see that Microsoft has an app I can purchase for $15 that allows me to play DVD’s. Do I really need to pay this fee for something that used to be free?
It’s true you could play DVD’s in Windows 7 but in Windows 10 using the native applications you cannot. Look at this way, the upgrade to Windows 10 was free and Microsoft has to make its money somewhere so they are monetizing anything they can and the DVD player is just one of those things. Yes, you could pay Microsoft $15 for its DVD player but there is really no reason to do that. Instead, there are many applications you can use that allow you to play DVD’s without having to pay any money. One of them that is a great application is called VLC. VLC runs on Windows 10, it can play DVD’s and it has one especially important feature, it is free. Check out the information and the link to VLC on our website.
