I can always grab a $30-$50 cheap blu-ray player, plus it has to be something the wife can do.
I should also mention that even on windows I think I'd recommend a stand-alone Blueray player. The software to play bluerays is just garbage. The best out there is probably PowerDVD, but version 12 didn't even have mouse support and the sound was never played right. They are on version 13 now which I have not bought and I doubt I will. I am running a trial of something called iDeer and the sound is 100 times better and has mouse support (and skips right to the root menu)...but some times there is a lag or freeze in the play back...though I am still playing with it. It isn't something I can reliably reproduce so I am not sure what is causing it. The bill for any blueray player software is going to run you at least $50 I believe and it is all junk that I have seen. You can catch the software sales some times for $30 though.

I think MakeMKV actually started on Linux though I am not sure. I've tried DVDfab in WINE and it seemed to work OK, but I don't think you want to use that for playback. The newest upgrade did make it better at that though.
Heh, if it weren't BlueRay I doubt I'd have an optical drive in any of the PCs around my house.Edited by Vagrant Storm - 5/26/13 at 9:11pm
