It’s a great and versatile programme.

I just wish the advanced preferences screen was a little easier to use with a screen-reader.

Have you messed with it much, David?

Hi Rosemarie!

I use the VLC media player with Windows 10 as my main video and audio player!

Just download version 3. So and so, and it will work with windows 10

It does amazing things, but it plays all kinds of media, and there are key commands like space bar, plays and pauses, Alt+right and left arrow, forwards and rewinds 30 seconds,

Just right and left arrow forwards and rewinds a few seconds, and so on. It has very easy to follow menus just like on older programs.

I just love it!

Hi, everyone,

 

I just looked at the site for VLC media player but it doesn't show a version for windows 10. Is there something else I can use to watch this movie? I just had my sighted nephew go on the computer with team viewer and he said that the DVD is in a weird format. It's really too bad that I can't watch the movie now.

Re: VLC media player

 

VLC works on all versions of Windows and their webpage, https://www.videolan.org/vlc/, states this.

The version you can download from that page will work just fine under Windows 10.  I use VLC on both Windows and Android, and they also have versions for Linux, iOS (Apple iPhone), and OS-X (the Mac operating system).  All are downloadable from their home page.

You don't have to tell her anything.  When you have a problem, please don't jump to conclusions.  I've seen you do so before and it doesn't get you anywhere.
 
You haven't even tried VLC Player yet.

You should be able to play the thing with windows media player, however I
have brought dvd audio extracter and while that can't always get the stuff
off especially if its fully encripted it can crack most dvds its
40 bucks though.

Re: can't watch a DVD

Gene
 

I don't know if there is something about this DVD that is different than usual.  I don't know how the newest media player may differ from other versions.  So I won't describe how to play the DVD from within the program.  I'll let someone else do so.  You are using Windows 10.  So instructions should be given for that version of the player.  But any program you can use to open or play any file by pressing enter on the file name in file explorer can be used to open the file directly.  You can open a Word file by opening Word, then using the open dialog in Word to open the file.  You can open a file you can play in Media Player in media Player by opening Media Player, and using the open dialog in the program.  If you usuallly play DVDs in Media Player and you can't play that DVD in the usual way, then the question is why.  You can try to play it directly in the player, you can also download and try VLC Media Player and see what happens. 
 
At this point, we don't know what is causing the problem.  So you can experiment.

Try Media Player first I suppose, since you probably already have that. I never use that programme but I admit VLC can present a bit of a challenge for first-time users.

Hi, everyone,

 

I know I have a CD DVD drive on this computer but I can't watch a documentary my sister gave me for my birthday. Is there something I might not be doing right? I don't want to have to tell my sister that I can't watch the documentry. It's supposed to be a really good documentary about the life of Janis Joplin.

 

Thanks for any help you can give in advance.

Is it possible that you have it in upside down?

DVDs often have a ridge (ring around the hole) on both sides of the DVD.

Usually by default, unless it’s disabled, it will start playing in media player when you insert the DVD.

I usually disable this.

The box is checked to play CD's and DVD's automatically but it's just not happening for me. Maybe I disabled it by mistake--who knows. How do I enable it to start automatically?
