Over the passage of time, technology gets outdated, and older standards are replaced by newer ones. For example, you may not see many tape recorders on the market today, which is in stark contrast to the market of a decade ago.

Now, the DVD is being phased out and is being replaced by Bluray. This happening even as DVD continues to outpace Blurays in developing countries.

It has been revealed that you need to pay a one-time fee to Microsoft for playing DVDs in Windows 10. Many would be fooled by this, but the reality is that you don’t need to fork over a single cent if you know where to look.

Firstly, if you are upgrading from any version of Windows 7 or 8 (Except Windows 8 Home), you would be getting the player for free, and this offer is available for one year.

Secondly, several media-players, such as VLC, have their own DVD licenses. These programs are free, and are much more useful than their stock counterparts. In the end, Microsoft is hoping to make money by fooling customers?

What do you think? Should the DVD be phased out, or is it too early for the DVD’s demise?
