MKV and Blu-ray player

Hello
I am looking for software to play my movies BLU-RAY and MKV format files of the best quality. Most importantly read subtitles - Support in Hebrew!

Thanks
Tom

Media Player Classic - Home Cinema - Download Media Player Classic Home Cinema, Free Video Player Download - can play Bluray Disks and mkv. That much I know but don't know about Hebrew .

But under View>Options>Subtitle>default style, you do have Hebrew(177), if thats going to help you.

The subtitle fly in the ointment for BluRay is usually PGS subtitle support. WMP 12 and VLC can both display PGS subtitles and embedded XSubs used in divx files.

PGS subs are an image format so the language shouldn't matter. Media Player Classic Home Cinema can display PGS also but I think you have to do some fiddling using Haali Media Splitter as DirectShow displayer of PGS subs to get it to work. Unless it's been updated recently to display them directly.

VLC is probably the easiest to try as it's self contained.

The truth .. When I tried the POWER DVD I loved the sound but he did not put my address. You know why?

I have no experience with Power DVD. Maybe somebody else can help with it. I use SPlayer quite a bit. But it doesn't have PGS subtitle support. I have to extract the subs and convert to idx/sub or .srt.

I think you'll like it. It has automatic sub search. Plays .mp4 .mkv HD .avi etc.. and it's quite stable. It doesn't automatically load an .iso file like VLC does but if you mount the .iso with one of those virtual drive utilities it will load it using Open Disc.

I have no difficulty in pulling out the subtitles when playing BDs on MPC-HC.

Does VLC play BDs? I am not aware since I do not use VLC.

It will play .m2ts .mkv .mp4

At least on my machines I've noticed VLC is much less stable since it added PGS and XSub support. Maybe it's just a coincidence but it seems like if I touch it, it just goes away. Up to 1.0 it was solid. Not sure what happened.

It may play BluRay disc off BDROM drive if you have one of those PassKey apps running, I'm not sure. It's too frustrating to try to use it. Mainly for that reason I found SPlayer.
