playing a dvd


I installed a dvd into my imac and everytime I want to watch it I have to eject the dvd then reinsert it for it to start to play.Is there a way I can get the dvd to play without ejecting it first.When I right click on the icon that appears on my desktop it doesnt give me an option to play the disc.and if I click on the icon it opens two folders that are associated with the dvd but none of the folders will play the dvd.But if I eject it and reinstall it the movie starts to play instantly.Any help would be appriciated.


I'm cool, I have a mac.
Go to your Applications folder, find DVD Player. Drag it to the dock, click it in the dock whenever you want to play the DVD.

Or you can just open it from the Applications folder or make some other short cut.
