DVD Player

DVD Player enables you to play DVD-Video on your Macintosh.

✓ Tip

  • To use DVD Player, your Macintosh must have a DVD-ROM drive or SuperDrive. For that reason, the Mac OS X installer only installs DVD Player on computers that have one of these drives. If you can’t find DVD Player in your Applications folder, chances are that your computer can’t play DVD-Video anyway.

Insert a DVD-Video into your computer. DVD Player should launch and do one of two things:
