    I cannot Play movies on my W 8 upgraded to W 8.1, will they play when I upgrade to W 10
    Need more info. Like, what format were the files in or what extension, what were you using to try to play them and were there any error messages?

    Do they play using VLC Media Player (that seems to play most all formats)?

    I am not sure if Windows VLC will play dvd in windows 8, 8.1 or 10. VLC might require a certain file to play DVDS within windows.

    Ah, just realised that I may well have misinterpreted the problem being asked about. I was thinking of movie files but Emma may have meant playing DVDs as you did.

    Illustrates that a problem should be explained in detail!

    Just tried VLC - it does play DVDs. But thought I saw somewhere that MS is providing a DVD player as part compensation for removing WMC.

    Interesting. I hope you are correct. Right now they say the dvd player would be removed as well.

    DVD playback. “Watching DVDs requires separate playback software,” Microsoft notes. But I assume any existing DVD playback software will continue running. And in a separate FAQ, Microsoft says it is “providing a free DVD playback app in Windows 10 for Windows Media Center users.”

    As far as W 8 not playing movies, it will play reg DVDs, not Blu Ray. When I got home from my trip, I couldn't figure it out. I thought I had used it before so I check with a reg DVD and it played. I only took my fantasy movies with me and they were BR. Sorry I did not know of any way to explain it.

    Wynona, will it do that on my W 8 upgraded to W8.1 since I use a W 7 to most of my posting in here. I will watch for it on both computers. Will I need any past windows updates to upgrade to W 10.

    Thanks for the help.

Windows 10 Release Date in General Support
Does anyone here believe that Windows 10 will be very likely to come out in June 2015 or is that wishful thinking? I want it now so badly but I would hate to have to wait until September or even July or August. Microsoft needs to speed things...
