Why Play DVD In Windows Media Player

May 4, 2008


Why Play DVD in Windows Media Player? I get asked this question a lot.

My simple 2 part answer is that:

A) You do NOT have to learn how to use yet another piece of new software. All the DVD decoders available integrate themselves into the Windows Media Player interface. So you have the new features of DVD but the familiar look and feel of WMP.


B) PRICE. A dvd codec for Windows Media Player is usually only a fifth of the price!

I often travel to conferences with a laptop and a few DVD’s so appreciate having a DVD plug-in installed.
