You may be able to connect it (USB) but that is a tablet and the DVD player will probably not be recognized or be usable. I've tried similar devices with iPads and Galaxy tablets with no success.

I attach an OTG cable to my Galaxy tablet. I then attach a powered USB 4 port hub to the USB side of the OTG cable. I can get USB sticks recognized and see the files on them.
I attached my DVD burner - it uses 2 USB plugs. The light goes on, on the burner, but then goes off. I inserted a movie but when I looked in files, the player is not seen. (perhaps the movie isn't in a format that can be read by the tablet).

My advice: rip the DVD as an mp4. Put it on a USB stick or a micro sd card and play the movie that way.

If you want to use a USB stick, you will need an OTG cable. One end is micro USB that fits in the charging port and the other end is female USB.
