Got a DVD but couldn't play it. Found Cyberlink PowerDVD18 app and downloaded it. But it is a trial version. Does Windows 10 provide a free app to play DVD's on external USB DVD player.

VLC. It never showed me any ad or ask for review. So i am happy with it.

Always weird to me how people agree with an answer without endorsing or marking it as helpful/solution :)

Thank you for sharing your experience. I used VLC in the past to play MP4's , but didn't realize that it could be used for DVDs .
