    "Fail to play blu-ray" problem

    I reported this issue at Aurora, but I figure I could ask it here too just in case.

    I have Aurora Blu Ray Player, trial version so I didn't buy it yet. Have meaning too. It always works, and I bought two new blu rays and they all worked except for one: disc 1 of X-Men Days of Future Past The Rogue Cut. Disc 2 works, but when I tried playing disc 1, I encountered the "fail to play blu-ray disc" problem. I tried playing it on another player (non computer) and it was fine, so its just Aurora. I know I updated Aurora, and I tried to fix the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling just in case, and that didn't work. My brother has Aurora on his computer, and the same issue. Is it possible that something is making the disc not play for some reason, or is it the disc itself regardless of being able to play elsewhere?

    Anyone have ideas to make it play?

    "I have Aurora Blu Ray Player, trial version so I didn't buy it yet."

    Very likely trial version and its keys 'expired'. Some software that required updated keys are usually subscription-based. You have to pay a nominal fee annually to keep the software working, especially with newer Blu-ray discs with more advanced encryptions. You're not getting the newer key to play DOFP.

    That's weird, as it plays any of the new ones. This one didn't. I tried Anymp4 and it did work.
