I previously blogged if you upgrade from a previous version of Windows with the Windows Media Center you would be losing it in Windows 10. I also blogged that if you desired to play DVDs in Windows 10 you would be required to download and install a third party “Playback Software”. Microsoft has recently released an update (KB3081704) to deploy the Windows DVD Player. But not everyone with be getting the DVD player for free.
See the Graphic from the Microsoft Store below.
If you upgraded from an operating system that included the Window Media Center (Windows 7 home premium or ultimate, Window 8 or 8.1 with Media Center) you will automatically receive the Windows DVD Player through Windows Updates. If you did not upgrade from one of the previous versions you will have to pay $14.99 for Windows DVD Player. This version of the Windows DVD Player will not play Blu-Ray disks. Getting the Windows DVD Player app to get the entire FAQ on this version of Windows DVD Player. If you have previously installed a DVD / Blu-Ray player it will continue to work.
