Technically, MadVR isn't a codec. It's a video renderer.
Be aware, you lose DXVA support with MadVR. You either need a fast CPU to handle the decoding work or an Nvidia graphics card with CUDA support (for LAV CUVID or CoreAVC).
For playing actual Blu-ray discs, though, I use TMT. It's the only player that still supports HD-DVD and I bought a ton of those on close-out for $1~3ea.
Commercial Blu-ray discs are protected. You'd have to remove copy-protection before you can play them in MPC-HC, etc. If you just want to be able to play the discs without removing encryption, you need a commercial player such as PowerDVD, WinDVD or Total Media Theatre.Edited by rui-no-onna - 5/22/11 at 8:14am
