    From Disk? I don't believe so unless you use Airplay mirroring... basically sharing your Mac's screen: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201343 I believe this still requires VLC as the player instead of Apple's built-in DVD player.

    Ripped to a .m4v file first? Certainly.

    VLC open the dvd through files>disk. Enable AirPlay Mirroring
    Then just go full screen and start the movie.
