Is there any possible way to make DVD plays in VLC Media with better video quality like PowerDVD? It'd better be free better not be complicated (I'm not an advanced computer user).

Don't see why not. When you put in your DVD go to "My Computer" then click the DVD icon then open with... choose VLC Player. I haven't tested this because when I play DVD's I usually play them with Windows Media Player.

-EDIT-

Also, a video quality relies on many things.. Graphics Card, RAM (<-- I think), Codecs (<-- MAIN ONE). So I think if you look around the net for some video codecs they should play your videos better. For me I like K-lite media codec pack, or something around that name I forgot. =P

K-Lite Codec Pack? I have that. But I don't know how to configure some of the stuff. I have good graphics card and 1.2 gb of ram, the problem is with the player. Play the same DVD on VLC and PowerDVD, and compare the quality, it's pretty obvious.

I don't use Power DVD so I have no idea what the quality is like, and yea it's K-Lite Codec but when you install it, It's only for certain players like windows media player and so forth. But to answer the amain question just put the DVD in then go to VLC player then select the DVD.

there must be an issue with how you have VLC setup, I use it, powerdvd, media player classic and nero showtime, and all of them display dvd movies with equal quality.

There are only two things affecting video quality. The video file in itself, and post-processing related stuff. Unless your the guy filming and encoding the video file there is nothing you can do about it. De-interlacing, noise-reduction, up-mixing and other post-processing is done by the decoder or player. I guess it is possible that PowerDVD is doing something to fix up the video. In VLC go to Settings > Prefrences > Input / Codecs > Other codecs > ffmpeg. There you can increase post-processing.

Personally I recommend against K-Lite codec pack.
