How to open BUP files on Windows 10

Talking about playing BUP files in Windows 10 is equivalent to talking about playing DVDs in Windows 10.

While it is true that Windows 10 no longer offers the ability to play DVDs, there is alternative software that you can install to fix the problem. We show you how to play DVD movies, including IFO and BUP files, with VLC.

The latest version of Windows 10 has extremely innovative features compared to its predecessors. However, in the same way that new functions are added, they also removed those that they consider least necessary for the user.

In this way, if you have a clean installation of Windows 10, there will be no possibility of playing DVD's with the native application, unless you upgraded your computer from an edition higher than Windows 7 or 8.1, which replaced Windows Media Center with Windows DVD Player.

Although many PCs and laptops already come without DVD player units, you may find yourself in the need to reproduce some content of this type using a  external drive.

Windows Media Center

Microsoft decided to remove Windows Media Center from Windows 10, but kept the Windows DVD Player out to people from updates coming from the Pro and Ultimate versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Play a DVD with VLC

VLC player is a free one that also plays almost any support or medium without problems, be it CD, DVD or compressed digital formats, and is available for any Windows version.

It has the advantage that using the appropriate additional plugins, it will also allow you to play Blu-ray formats.

To play a DVD with VLC, open the tray of your drive or floppy disk and insert a disc, then open the VLC program, select 'Media> Open disc' in the menu bar located at the top. Select your drive from the drop-down list, and click 'play'.

From now on, you should have access to your library of DVD titles, with their respective menus, given by the IFO and BUP files contained on your DVD.
