    Anyone here know about 5Kplayer?

    Supposedly it can play DVDs in Win10 and it's free. Still, I'm suspicious.

    Never heard of it.

    My choice would be the free VLC Media Player...

    There is going to be a DVD player embedded in W10 GA. And obviously if it's native it's free.... comes w/ the OS as part of it. Like so many other things (NOW) no need to go 3rd Party.

    There is if the 3rd-party app provides more features and functionality than the native app.

    That's cool; was wondering if such a thing would be offered. I heck would rather use something that came from an OEM or Microsoft then an unknown 3rd party program even if it is free.

    Agree. And it seems fair that it applies to Folks like me w/ WMC. We, indeed, had a MS product not, 3rd Party. For those w/out WMC who maybe had a 3rd Party item, they can carry on w/ that in Win10.... nothing changes, nothing lost; everybody happy. You had WMC from MS & now you will, still, have a way to play DVDs from MS.

    Cheers,
