What is a DVD player software? A DVD player software allows a computer user to watch a DVD on his or her computer. What makes a DVD player software �special� is that DVDs generally use a better but more complex compression technology compared to a normal video CD. Not only that, DVDs are organized somewhat differently, as well. Unlike a normal CD, DVDs are organized in �Chapters� and therefore a normal video player software cannot �read� them.
