Blu-ray not working. What do?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
New to OCN and this is my first post... Just built my first computer.

Apparently Windows 7 media player doesn't support Blu-ray. I have the appropriate hardware, just not the software. It's looking like there won't be any free and decent software for this... so I'm willing to pay for a media player that will do the job.

OCN, what do you suggest?

You can use PowerDVD to play Bluray. I just bought a Samsung bluray drive last week and it came with a copy of PowerDVD.

I downloaded and installed VLC... but it wasn't working. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Did you install codecs ? Perhaps K-Lite codecs?

Okay, I just installed the K-Lite codecs... still not working.

Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd://D:\\'. Check the log for details.

Must I connect some file extensions or something?
