    Don't know how much those commercial Blue-Ray player apps cost, but Nero is pushing Version 14 pretty hard. Although they didn't say it, I found out that version 12 Platinum came with a Blue-Ray player. You might be able to get version 12 Platinum pretty cheap these days.

    One "free" way around it is to use MakeMKV to extract the BluRay main track as an MKV file. These can be played with many free players such as SPlayer Portable. If subtitles are not an issue this can be very straightforward. Also it's really better to read from an image than from the hardware player on the PC. Less wear and tear and heat. But if you watch a lot of foreign films as I do then the subs can be a pita to mess with.

    Another alternative is one of those drive decrypter programs that allow you to play the video with any player or copy the video files onto the HD.

    I want to bump this back up, because I'm still looking for a BD software for my computer. I recently dl-ed a free trial version of Corel WinDVD Pro, and I don't know what happened, but it started to freeze a bit after I hit play.

    I also want to know how to successfully use VLC to play Blu rays, something I have tried and fail numerous times.

    Thanks

    If you decide to go commercial, ArcSoft Total Media Theater is my choice.

    I got ArcSoft, and I'm really liking it so far. Maybe that's the one

    I just need to know where is the safest secure place to buy it once the trial ends (unless I can still use it after the trial ends). There's amazon.com for example; also, when you click on ArcSoft it says that if you want to end the trial, you need to enter your e-mail and activation code. Obviously, I don't have the code.

    You need to add codecs to your VLC player. I suggest CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack I myself use this to watch Blue-Ray movies all the time. If CCCP is not enough ( though it should be ) you can also get K-Lite Mega Codecs Pack from Free-Codecs.com | Download K-Lite Mega Codec Pack 10.1.5 just pay close attention when if you need 32 or 64 bit, and while installing, they like to add things like toolbars etc etc just decline those and you will be ok. I have been using both those for years without any hiccups. But like I said CCCP should be enough.

    It didn't do the trick. ArcSoft seems to be the way to go. I need to know the answer from what I asked above

    VLC doesn`t say anything about playing Blue-Ray, but apparently it does ?

    Yeah, that's what I've heard and googled. But then again, anything I try doesn't work for me.

    The AACS libraries and KEYDB.cfg must be in specific folders for VLC to play BDs. That's all I can say on the matter.
