What's the best software for playing Blu-Ray discs in Windows 7?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Firstly, does anyone know if the is an add-on for Windows Media Player or Windows Media Center that I could just download? I have searched with Google and have found conflicting answers.

Secondly, For now I am using PowerDVD 9 to play my Blu-Rays and I'm not all that crazy about it. What alternative software is out there?

This is my BD-Rom, if that makes any difference: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106326

I'm also using PowerDVD.
However if you get AnyDVD HD you can rip the blu-ray to a folder, so you can open the specific m2ts file with VLC player as well.

But unless you want to stretch the video over two screens (which isn't possible without ripping the blu-ray, it has some protection against this I think), it's not worth it imo.

Thanks. I will try it when I get home from work tonight. The problem I'm having with PowerDVD 9 is that about every 5 minutes, the audio studders for a second. I've Googled that and have found that others are having the same problem.

There are many Blu-ray player software products on the market, powerdvd is good, but expensive, free one has no blu-ray license and not reliable
You can try ufusoft Blu-ray Player, it is good and cheap, and officially authorized.
