Windows 7: Bought blue ray drive for my laptop but media player wont play disks.

Bought blue ray drive for my laptop but media player wont play disks.

I have bought a LITON (DS-6E2SH) blue ray player for my laptop and it is working fine in so much as it will play DVD's and CD's but I can't play blue ray disks because media player doesn't support them. Does anyone know whether there is any good software that will support their play back.

x264 achieves Blu-Ray Compatibility
The x264 project has announced the first free software encoder to be able to generate Blu-ray compliant video. In addition, the announcement comes with a torrent of an x264-encoded Blu-ray disc containing entirely free content, such as the Open Movie Project videos.
While there are still no free software Blu-ray authoring tools, hopefully this will change now that video and audio are taken care of so that everyone will be able to make their own Blu-rays without expensive proprietary software. Grab your torrent now!. Know more about this achievement!

Hi there
(If against forum rules please delete)

If you buy a copy of AnyDVD it will automatically remove blu ray disc protection when you insert the disk.

Note Not COPYING the disk --AnyDVD is simply enabling a disk you've PAID FOR to work on your computer so no intention of illegal copying / pirate software etc etc.

Used in this way AFAIK it should be legal in most countries --however "the suits" often come up with weird regulations so check out where you live.

Then using the M2TS stream you can use the VLC player (Legal and Free) to play your Blu Ray movie.

AnyDVD is fine and legal in IS.

It *Might not* be ok where you are so you'll have to check that out for yourself.

However the link for VLC (100% legal) is here.

VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

VLC can play only m2ts files. So one has to find out which of the countless :) m2ts file/s one has to play and in which order.

MPC-HC automatically selects the main movie playlist and starts playing the BD movie from start to end. My post MKV and Blu-ray player

I did not suggest AnyDVDHD to the OP since he is inclined to buy a regular licenced software player and has queried about it.

In that case he will not need AnyDVDHD, provided his playback chain is HDCP compliant. He can make do with the DVDFab's free Passkey Lite till then.:)

If OP wants to buy a regular software he should keep looking and buy it only when there is a substantial discount.

Why wont the media player or the media centre play MP4's?
Is there a good reason why MS don't equip either the media centre or the media player with the ability to play MP4's. I don't see why they can't play them,and surely it would be in MS's best interest if they could play them.
