DVD's are slowly becoming obsolete and not as many people watch DVD's or rent DVD's anymore because of the online streaming content and Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services.

Still some people like to watch DVD's and they still make DVD players and people still buy them as well.

It will likely be another 10 year to 20 years or so before the DVD and DVD players actually do become obsolete.

Some people still watch VHS tapes on older VHS players but they don't make VHS players or VHS tapes anymore.

The quality of DVD video is much better than any VHS tapes as well but most streaming content is even better quality than DVD videos.

I still watch some DVD's that I have but mostly I use my Roku player to stream content on my TV.

Of course I hardly watch much TV but when I do it's mostly the Roku player that streams the content for me.

Yes, that is right. Most new laptops and personal computers no longer come with DVD drives. In a few years it will be a problem to buy such drives, they say that by 2030 only a few DVD devices will survive, and by 2045 not all people of the older generation will remember them. It would also be pointless to decide to store photos and videos even on the best optical discs, since in the future there will be nothing to open them on. I think it would be best to convert your disks using https://www.freemake.com/free_dvd_ripper/  , so as not to lose important and expensive information for yourself.
