    it has to see media center to get the app.. any re-installation of windows 10 does not see media center...

    as a test try the RESET feature after the dvd player app has been installed

    I had the DVD app after upgrade from 7 Home Premium, but have since lost it..

    problem is I do not remember if I re-installed the OS or RESET the OS

    So, what's lame is you Only get it on an upgrade installation,,,

    I never ever got it with an upgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate. I had to do the upgrade again from 8.1 Pro with Media Center to get it. Clean install on the same PC and its gone again.

    1. Q: What Windows editions are eligible for the free Windows DVD Player app when upgrading to Windows 10?
    A: Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate, and Windows 8/8.1 with Media Center.
    8. Q: Will I keep the free app if I reinstall Windows using update and recovery?
    A: The free Windows DVD Player app is tied to your Windows 7 or Windows 8 installation, so any action that reinstalls Windows over the top of an existing Windows 10 installation will break this tie and remove the free Windows DVD Player app. To recover the free app, you’ll have to use your installation media to re-install Windows 7 or Windows 8 + Media Center, and then upgrade to Windows 10.

    That's just lame, IMHO. I'm not doing an upgrade every time just to get that App.

    Heh, Bluray apps go for $50, and it's not until you got to $80 or so that they can properly handle the java-based disc menu.

    Through Googling I found a free blu ray player that works in Windows 10 and it even plays Disney blu ray disks.

    Do a Google search for Leawo Blu-ray Player.

    According to one blog, it use to be a pay program but now the company website is offering it for free.
