Of course, Windows Media Player isn't just for music. You can also use WMP to play back movies on DVD, videos you've downloaded from the Internet, or TV programs you've recorded to your PC's hard disk.
When you insert a DVD in your PC's DVD drive, playback should start automatically. Your system should sense the presence of the DVD, launch Windows Media Player, and start playing the movie.
You can also initiate DVD playback from within WMP by clicking the Library tab, selecting the DVD title from the Navigation pane, and then clicking the Play button. As you can see in Figure 44, the picture from the DVD displays within WMP's Now Playing pane.
