After upgrading to Win 10, the new player doesn't auto-play the DVD when I double-click it... it just opens the DVD folder and shows the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders on the disc. Anyone run into this? How do I resolve this behavior? I'd like to get back to having it seamlessly auto-play the DVD on double-click without having to open any additional player or window? :confused:

When I have the time, I'll check the settings. It was a fresh install so it's odd that it wouldn't all be pre-configured with the DVD player already setup :shrug:

I'm familiar with VLC been using it for like 15 years as my primary player but this isn't my computer, helping a friend out. That was my plan B.

Thanks all :thup:

Setting up Media Player Classic is kind of a pain in the rear. Have to run setup as Administrator, and W10 will block it. Click on "more info" in the window that tells you it's blocked and a "run anyway" button pops up. Stupid.

I already have the Windows 10 DVD Player installed because I was upgrading from Windows 7. It only works when I open the DVD player and wait for it to auto-load... I can't just click the DVD icon like I would expect. Another issue is that there is the control panel that shows at the bottom when I move my mouse. Some of the DVD menu items are in this area and I can't click them...? Pretty poor design if you ask me. Seems to be no common sense way to hide/minimize this control panel either.

I tried VLC expect it too work like a charm. No luck. Double-clicking the DVD icon file just loads the VLC player window but nothing plays. :shock:

Did you set VLC as the default player in Windows? (probably a dumb question, but we tend to ask things we've done before. LOL) MPC has the same issue for me. I have to drag n drop to the player. W10 sucks.

You probably said the same thing about Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 when they came out. What? Do you expect an operating system to be perfect?

LOL. I like 7. I liked XP before I got 7. Didn't like 8 from the first Developer Preview I got. Don't like 10. At all. Ever. LOL :)

I liked Vista, too. Just not for long because 7 came out and, well, 7.

In my experience, like every other windows OS is great... 95 was good, 2000/ME sucked, XP was good, Vista sucked, windows 7 was good, windows 8 sucked... so I expected a lot more from Win 10... it really seems like they've moved even farther away from what has been working for the masses with this release. so many micro-changes. its too much...

Funny enough after updating yesterday on my win7 tablet, my Windows Journal quicklaunch disappeared along with any instance of the exe. Turns out a specific update (aug 12) removes it lol. I had to reinstall it after I found the proper link (from ms). MS suggested the free ed of one note. OK, except it immediately on opening asked for a login. MS is retarded. The one installed was v6 something and the replacement is like v10. Should have been an update not a removal.

One thing to note is that the offending update, removing journal, can NOT be uninstalled. MS says it's mission critical (my ***). I don't care what they think they are going to or will force onto windows 7. I will simply revert to an older os image and move on.
