I wanted to add however that your nuts to use anything other then VLC. All the reasons have already been stated except for one. You most definately CAN mount a DVD Image (ISO) and play it inside VLC. Your choice however but atleast there is a fix for you if you stick to the Microsoft WMP.
VLC also de-crypts everything and de-regionalises the whole kybosh --there is 100% NO POINT in EVER paying anything at all for a Windows DVD player.
What sometimes though is worth while is that if you want to RIP the DVD to store on HDD and convert into MKV / MP4 files for playing with a media server to your remote smart TV's / phones etc (DNLA devices) using servers such as Mezzmo, Serviio, PLEX etc. is to use a program like AnyDvd to remove encryption / DvdCSS stuff and region encryption ( R1, R2 etc -- total B/S these days IMO to have regionalized encoding) -- to create an ISO and then use that ISO to rip to MKV etc.
Things like Handbrake (Free) will easily give you good accurate rips to MKV / MP4 etc (with / without subtitles - your choice) from the de-crypted DVD ISO file.
HandBrake: Open Source Video Transcoder
SlySoft AnyDVD | any dvd, region free, backup dvd, dvd copy, copy dvd movies, dvd backup software, dvd copying software
Windows 8/8.1 / 10 mount ISO's directly so no problem there -- and storing MKV's on HDD is a much better idea than having a load of physical DVD's.
Note also -- if you've ripped the DVD to MKV / MP4 / AVI etc -- VLC will of course still play it without any problem whatsoever - including subtitles.
