How to Play DVD Movie on Windows 10

Read this article to know how to rip origin DVDs to MP4 or other media formats on Windows 10 or lower Windows version laptops. Know the 3 simple steps in which you can convert your new or old DVDs to digital formats without losing any quality.

Even in this digital life where movies are live-streamed and watched on smartphone screens, there are still many of us who don't like to not worry about proper internet connections and prefer to buy movies on DVD discs. However, it seems that Microsoft is no longer much gung-ho about this medium and that explains why they don't have native support for DVD playback on Windows Media player. To solve this problem, many of us buy the $15 DVD players which play many of our DVDs but still fail at playing many discs due to various errors, encoded discs or discs which are designed to play only on players of some specific regions.

Two Easy Ways to Watch DVD on Windows 10

Method one: Watch DVD with 5KPlayer

One of the ways is to use a professional DVD player for Windows 10 like 5KPlayer to play DVDs. This free media player can play 4K/1080p/360° HD videos from DVDs. With the help of its TrueTheater technology, it flawlessly renders DVD videos with their chapters and multiple subtitles. For the Hi-fi audiophiles, 5KPlayer plays RStereo, Dolbys, DTS multi-channel surround sound in multiple audio formats including in MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, FLAC & ALAC lossless audio format without much effort and without losing any originally recorded quality.

Method Two (optimal choice): Digitize DVD to MP4 video with WinX DVD Ripper Platinum

While 5KPlayer is an obvious choice, a more optimal solution is to just convert the DVD content to a format that most of your media devices can play. However, if you have tried copying content from DVDs anytime before, you will be aware that the original DVD's don't allow you to copy content from the discs. These discs are protected by copyright software which prevents copying or playback through high-end encoding.

These copyright protection tools might have been created with good intentions, but their drawback is that even those who have bought these DVDs are not able to play their purchase on the device of their choice. This defeats the purpose of protection of the consumer while preserving the property of the media owners. To fix this problem, one can make use of a Windows DVD Ripper software like WinX DVD Ripper Platinum Utility.
  • This utility helps you rip media content from DVDs which are protected by 99-title, CSS encryption and new UOP, Sony ARccOS, Disney X-project, etc. The output media files are now free of any sort of protection.
  • Even if you DVD is dirty or little damaged, this DVD Ripper utility has extra support to rip media files from dirty, scratched and damaged discs as well.
  • Once you have converted the DVD media content to digital files like MP4, you can easily now share the media content and play it any device of your choice including smartphones and on laptops with no DVD slot.
  • It can be used to create a 1:1 ISO or DVD folder as well.
  • It makes use of GPU acceleration tech to rip DVDs 47 times faster, practically ripping a 2-hour video content from a DVD within 5 minutes.
