I forgot to mention that VLC player does not work reliably.
It is necessary to use an external power adapter to connect the DVD or CD player to the compute stick. They usually require more current than USB hubs bring.
If you plug the DVD or CD player to the stick without the USB hub, you will see it, as recognized in your display.
In regards to the application VLC player; I downloaded the latest version and installed without any issue. Please review the image below.
