If you use windows, the best way to get a free DVD player is to see if any of the DVDs you already own come with one. My Star Wars DVDs come with InterActual Player for free. Sure sure, it's not actually free, as you have to buy a DVD to get it, but I'm sure you'll find a DVD that has a free player in your collection, or if not, your friends collection. I think about half of my DVDs come with some sort of free player for windows. Insert the DVD into your computer and see if it asks you if you'd like to install a player. That's the best way to check.
