    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….

  • Matt uk January 26, 2013, 3:08 am

    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.

    What about PowerDVD? Thats my favourite! I havent tested all of these

  • sami prince April 18, 2015, 8:28 pm

  • Seppo Ahonen August 23, 2015, 5:21 am

    Free BS Player does not play DVD films so it is not number one. I give it only two stars.

  • Roy August 25, 2016, 10:32 pm

    I think you need to update this list bro, this was written 5 years ago, and there are some brilliant new DVD players out such as 5KPlayer, WinX DVD player, etc. and They are all free to play any DVDs.
