    Metro/Windows Store application wishlist


    I just thought it would be nice to make a list of everything that we want updated to run in the Windows Store App enviroment:

    DVD player: just a simple application that does what the $15 DVD player hooked up to your TV can do, and cheaper than Media pack (if not free)

    DVD/BD player. like the DVD player, but can play bluray disks and handle all of the disk's additional features.

    Bittorrent

    Full mkv/srt/etc codec pack (Media Foundation). So that all of the Metro apps can handle srt subtitle files and work with media files such as MKV.


    Any more?

    Hence the wishlist. A clean Metro bluray player would be far superior to Cyberlink's overbloated crap.

    Blu-Ray is patented and licensed so your not going to get a free BD player, it sucks and i hate it but thats the way it is. to play the file type your going to have to torrent it or pay someone to watch the discs you already own

    I never said it was going to be free. Only with DVD can you get away with a free app (look at VLC).

    Hopefully it's priced at just above the licensing fee, and has a clean interface with no useless features.
