    Blu-Ray player software?

    Can anyone recommend a good Blu-Ray player for windows? Apparently most free ones won't play these discs and the program that came with my player is outdated and is trying to charge me for an update. Therefore, I wanted to see if anyone had one in mind since I'm probably stuck with paying for one anyway.

    This is exactly why i bought a standalone blu ray player, too many issues with these in PC's. You should contact the software company that came with the player, you shouldnt have to pay for an upgrade.

    Unfortunately all software players for blu-ray are like this.

    The only solution is to buy a lifetime license for SlySoft Anydvd HD which will allow you to play back newer media on out of date players or even free players that can't normally decrypt blu-rays.

    Which costs more than good stand-alone BluRay player or PowerDVD and is not guaranteed to work on all movies.

    Probably because it has features not found on any commercial player such as: skipping ads and trailers, ability to backup your movies, and the speed menu system which is usually way faster then the java ones built into most disks.

    Sadly it actually decrypts better then powerdvd 12 as I have trouble playing a few disks without anydvd.
    I checked the Cyberlink forums for issues with those disks and they have been around since pdvd11.

    I picked up a toshiba with built in wifi for 62.99 and it works splendidly with netflix, so glad i went this route rather than putting one in my PC and using HDMI cable to my TV.

    And for the blu ray part ive yet to see a movie where you cant just do main menu>play and skip all the trailers.

    I'll look into anydvd and I guess I can look into what it would cost to upgrade the software that came with my player... I'll have to dig out the disc.

    Thanks guys

    I have a 50" plasma in the living room and a 42" LCD in the other room, but I prefer to watch things on my pc at times.

    why don't you try totalmedia?? I have used it for almost 2 years. It's an easy to use and professional blu ray player software for windows. In my opinion,It's better than powerdvd. You can download and try to decide.

    iDeer Blu-ray Player. It can play commercial Blu-ray or DVD in different regions.
    You also can watch blu-ray movies on on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch.
