Insider Preview Can't play dvd videos in Build 9860


Senior Member
I have Windows media Player and VLC installed, but non of them can play videos, regardless of whether they are home made videos or retail movie dvds.

So, what do I have to use without paying for it ?

Actually, MS has warned us that Win 10 TP will not play DVDs on Windows Media Player.
There is a section on Important notes:
(excerpt ) After you install the preview, you won't be able to play DVDs using Windows Media Player.
One will have to click a few links before one can see the warnings.
But that's besides the point.

Now I am updating my question......
If it is so easy for the Win 10 system to accept VLC, a 3rd party application, why is it so hard to accept Windows Media Player which is a MS product ?
