Your number one choice ‘BS DVD Player’ will not play DVD’s unless you buy the pro version, so not the best one really.
I found the UM Player the most useful by far.

RealPlayer now needs you to purchase something to play DVD’s… Not really helpful to those without money… And, weirdly, NOT FREE….

UM Player is shocking

Bad news:BS Video player dosen’t play DVDs for free.Says so in the FAQ,and there’s no “Play DVD” button.
The DVD control buttons are there,but that’s to remind you to pay-they don’t really do anything,as you can never start playing a dvd in the first place.

I just downloaded and installed the BS Player. It does indeed playback DVDs for FREE. You just have to click on the open file button and find the correct video file on the disc to start playback. Unfortunately, it will not allow you to navigate the DVD menu without buying the pro version but you can still play the DVD.
