    Blu-ray software recommendations please.

    I lost the software that came with my Blu-ray drive, so need an alternative.

    I tried PowerDVD free trial, but got the message that it only work with hardware accelleration and i would need to purchase the Pro version for it to work. Not happy to do that if the trial doesn't work.

    I then tried Corel, but it was buggy on Win8 and wouldn't run properly.

    So, before I go down the route of trying all of them, what works for you? Free would be nice.

    One thing to try is to download the media center software from the app store. That'll get you at least DVD playback, not sure about bluray though, I haven't tried that.
