Don't Buy The $15 DVD Player App For Windows 10

Windows 10 doesn’t ship with the software to play DVDs. If you want to make that happen, Microsoft thinks you should spend $15 on a Microsoft DVD-playing app from the App Store. Don’t do that.

It’s kind of a shame that there’s no built-in software to play DVDs on Windows 10 — one more thing to download for your grandparents! — but as anyone who’s wrestled with Windows Media Player knows, there are much better options out there anyway. VLC costs nothing, has a better user interface, and costs exactly $14.99 less than Microsoft’s offering.
