I use the Leawo Blu-ray player. It's basic (eg. no resume from last position and limited menu support) but it gets the job done best of all it is free.
Mr too! I gpt my sister a dvd player for her computer way back! I also got a portable bluebray drive for my pc. There was a program that would rip them but then that stopped working but there was a linux program that worked. In the world of codecs I did find power dvd which was bundled with an alienware laptop I had worked best for surround sound when vlc and media plauer classic home cinema did not. I would have thought built in windows player would handle the surround sound now? Maybe not if this is still going?
My thoughts exactly. I’m sure I bought the ‘suite’ about 20 years ago with new viglen pentium 75mhz! :/
Good price but I seriously dislike the newer versions of Power DVD, its gone all millennial and forgot it needs to function sometimes. A great example is the border raising and hiding blu ray menus, its retarded in a way even MS Office doesnt match. Plus of course the farce that is DRM. Im on PDVD 2016 and id say 25% of blu rays wont play on it. Im starting to rant so ill continue, the whole joke of watching high bitrate content on a PC is turning me into a very miserable person. Keep a disc player handy. Or just stream low bitrate content from a 0.005mips smart telly. Heat added.
No disrespect but if they haven't improved in over 10 years.... i cannot see them managing it now ! With the speed of new processors and the power of GPU's nowadays if software manufacturers have not managed to sort the problems out by now they never will. And with the new generation of 4K films available, if they cannot get Bluray to play error free then they have no chance with 4K media
