Really silly question ! Do you have a computer ? Come to think of it, that was a silly question unless you are using a mobile phone for your link to BC !
OK, if you don't have a TV then it depends on what connections you have on the monitor, almost all have VGA, newer ones have either or both of HDMI and DVI as well. If you have some matching connector on your DVD player then you can connect it directly to the monitor, or at least try it and see if it works.
If you have a computer then it will certainly connect to your monitor and the majority of computers have a CD/DVD player built in and you can certainly buy second hand computers and if you have to fit a DVD drive into a computer (1) they are not very expensive, and (2) very easy to fit into a tower. If you have a laptop without one then you will need a USB connected player - a bit more expensive but not outrageous.
To play VHS tapes through a computer you need a digital converter. I bought one for a - slowly - ongoing project to convert tape to DVD. What you are looking for is something called a 'USB video capture' device. I have one made by Climax Digital and you can always do a search for either of these terms. It will play video on a monitor via a computer. How well I don't know since I have never looked at this video at full screen, only used it in its window for recording purposes.. Again, if you have an output on the VCR that matches an input on the monitor you may not need the computer !
