    I think this is what I did:
    Go to Autoplay in Control Panel > for DVD Movie choose: Ask Me Every time > close and restart PC > Insert a movie in DVD drive > When the notification window pops up on the desktop click it > "What do you want to do....." :
    If your preferred program (123 Media?) does not appear, use the "open file" option to navigate to the exe for the player.
    Select the player > there should be a checkbox that says: do this every time" > check it > start video
    Then test to see if 1) the dvd starts with the preferred player automatically, and 2) if the preferred player now shows in the list of options in the Control Panel Autoplay section.

    Also: If you go to "set defaults by file type" (Start > Settings > Apps > Default Apps > scroll to bottom > choose default apps by file type > scroll down to MPEG-2 ) > and change the default app to your preferred player (you can do MPEG-1 and MPEG-4 too).

    The key here is to get the 3rd party apps, VLC or 123, to show up as options in the Autoplay settings. So another option you could attempt is to uninstall the program and reinstall it fresh, perhaps using the 'recommended" install settings when you do.
    Managed to get vlc player doing it. It's a player that's supposed to be great and stream. I find trying to stream very difficult. Having to do this on my phone. For some reason my pc 💻 only shows my last post about the camera 📸 sd card working. So I can't give you's credit. So I'll do it here thanks very much to everyone.

    @hollyoaks777 You need to do the step I told you to do in post #6 before the 321 Media Player will show up as an app that you can select for DVDs
    Done it Phil shows up in autoplay. But not in default apps. That will do me. Thanks very much everyone.
