A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:
If you try to play a DVD in Windows 8 you may have noticed that you are unable to do so. This is because Microsoft removed free DVD playback from Windows 8 due to the costs of licensing the codecs necessary to properly play DVDs. Instead, if you wish to play a DVD you must first upgrade to Windows 8 Pro using the Windows 8 Pro Pack, or if you are already using Windows 8 Pro, install the Windows Media Center Pack. Once you install the feature pack you will be able to play DVDs in Windows 8 Media Center.
We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
