Microsoft Windows 10 DVD player app launched – but it might cost you

Microsoft has launched the Windows DVD Player app on the Windows Store, bringing DVD playback support back to Windows 10 for those users who missed the feature from Windows 7 and the Windows 8.1 Media Centre application.

Windows DVD Player is listed for $14.99, but Microsoft said those upgrading from a version of Windows with Media Centre will get the app as a free update for a limited time.

This includes customers who upgraded from Windows 7 Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium, or Windows 8.1 with Media Centre.

Windows DVD Player does not support Blu-ray discs.

Those who do not qualify for the free download may wish to stick with free video playback applications such as VLC.
