A laserdisc player plays laserdiscs.. They are the size of records, so there is no way that your DVD player will play them.

Exactly what celtic_druid said. The size of LP records (big). Needs a laser disc machine to play them. Quality of film is like better than VCD/VHS, probably on par or slightly less than SVCD/DVD.
