Notice: Like I said in Blu-ray & Xbox One S article, the Xbox One S is designed with a Blu-ray drive. Therefore it can read Blu-ray disc and DVD disc as long as those discs is not under copy right protection. Before we play DVD disc on the Xbox One S, we need to figure out whether or not the disc is under protection such as region code, Disney copy protection, CSS encryption, Sony ArccOS protection and so on. If yes, we need to get rid of the protection first, and then we can start to play DVD on Xbox One S. If no, we can directly insert DVD disc into the BD drive of the Xbox console for unlimited DVD playback.

I share some of my experience in these following pages:
