Playing DVDs

If you have a DVD drive, you can use Media Player to watch DVD movies. The Play menu lets you display closed captions and subtitles, choose a language track, and use other movie-specific features.

To play a DVD:

1.
Insert a DVD into your computer’s DVD drive.

2.
Depending on the AutoPlay settings that you made (refer to Figure 10.8), Media Player opens automatically or offers to do so.

If not, open Media Player; then choose Play > DVD, VCD or CD Audio > [your DVD drive].

3.
In the Playlist pane on the right, click a DVD title or chapter name, if appropriate.

If the playlist is hidden, choose View > Now Playing Options > Show Playlist.

4.
To enlarge the picture to fill the screen, press Alt+Enter (or choose View > Full Screen).

To return to normal, press Esc or Alt+Enter again (Figure 10.31, next page).

Figure 10.31. In full-screen mode, the playback controls appear automatically when you move the mouse and disappear after the mouse is idle for a few seconds. You can pin the controls onscreen by clicking the button in the top-left corner. Alternatively, you can right-click the movie or use the keyboard shortcuts listed in Table 10.3. The playlist (on the right) divides the movie into discrete chapters; double-click a chapter to jump to a particular scene.
