    Hi Folks

    To get VLC to play BLU RAY discs

    Playing Blu-Ray on Windows 7 or 8: Yes, VLC CAN play BD's!

    (@Mods - this is legal where I am --but if it's breaking the Forum rules please delete the link).

    Note Using these methods might be not legal where you are -- as in the case of the VLC player itself for playing standard commercial DVD's since VLC uses LIBDVDCSS to de-crypt standard DVD's. I'm not responsible if you use where not allowed.
