I have the most recent VLC Media Player installed on W10.

I inserted the DVD into the player and I can choose Media, Disc and place a dot in the circle next to DVD but it only plays the feature film trailer (15 seconds).

I see Feature listed but when I click on it nothing happens.

I have the W10 Media App installed but it prompts me to play DVDs from a library.

Is there a way to play a commercial DVD with either VLC Media Player or Windows Media Player without installing other software?

Hi, and welcome to the DCT forum.

I have no problem at all playing DVDs through VLC in Windows 10. Windows Media Player does not support playing DVDs. Windows Media Center used to be Microsoft's built-in DVD player but it is no longer supported. Please answer the following questions:

Is this just one particular DVD you are having problems playing or is it the same for all DVDs?

Have you tried playing the DVD in another player, such as in the DVD player connected to your TV?

Have you tried playing other DVDs through VLC in Windows 10?
