If memory serves, Warner Brothers was the only major film company releasing DVDs at that time.

About a year before I got my PS2 and Xbox, so I'm thinking 2000.

I bought a Toshiba player pretty early on. My first 3 DVDs were Austin Powers, LA Confidential, and Batman (1989). They were from a .com that has long since gone bust.

1997, one of the first Toshiba units.
I am a tragic early adopter and had to wait a long time before there was any great range of discs. My first disc was Replacement Killers, bought that and then the player so I could watch Chow Yun Fat in glorious DVD definition.

My family got its first DVD player in about 2003, but we didn't use it much until about 2004. As a family we continued to watch VHS tapes primarily until about 2006, when DVDs finally won us over. EXCEPT when it was time to record programs. Until we got DSL in 2011, we would record TV shows on the VCR. We never had cable or a DVR. My sister and I both had our own VCRs while we were growing up in the 90s, but we only had one antenna to share between us for watching/recording TV!
Our DVD player was a Sony, and my parents still use it at home to this day, even after we bought them a Blu-Ray player for Christmas a few years ago.

I don't remember the year, but I do remember the first DVD we rented: It was Cabin Boy (I love the scene where he's dancing on the table...and the floating fat a$$ cupcake)...and after I took it out of the player, Papa asked me (knowing what my response would be :-) ) if I had remembered to rewind it, and I was like "CRAP! I forgot!"
The first DVD we bought was The Big Lebowski.

My first DVD player was in an e-machines PC in 1999. The first DVD that I bought was U-571. Basically I was in college and I wanted a way to buy a DVD player and make it look like it was a practical investment.

April 27th, 2001. It was when I got my first PlayStation 2.

It must have been early 2003, I got it shortly after Minority Report came out on DVD and that was the first movie I got. That particular disc had problems with skipping large chunks of frames occasionally, I thought it was the cheep-ass Apex player at first, but other discs were fine. Assuming a bad disc, I have picked up a few more copies at garage sales and they do the same thing on some players. Nowadays, I am using the Xbox 360 for DVDs and getting ready to buy my first Blu-ray as I borrowed GOT season 3-4 from someone but it was BR.

I sat around and collected DVD movies.
Eventually I got a player.
Kind of an odd way to do things, but it worked out well.

Not sure but I think it must have been around 98.

Got mine when they first came out!
Pioneer DV-500. Gold plated S-Video jack!
No component video...yet!
Don't think it even plays home made dvds!
