    Bluray playback


    With the latest version of MPC-HC it solved my dvd playback issue, however I'm still looking for a solution for bluray and because most of my movies are encrypted they're not going to work on MPC-HC or VLC as I've already tried.

    I know of PowerDVD that will playback 3D and regular blurays along with DVDs, and it does list "Windows 8 ready" but what's your experience with Bluray and Windows 8? And what software are you using?

    Hi there. I will talk to you.

    I can't help you personally because I only have Windows 8 via virtual box and play back Blu-rays on Win 7 with TMT5.

    But you could try putting your question on this web forum.

    High Definition Software - SlySoft Forum

    It is a sub forum of Slysoft for HD software. A lot of the stuff on there relates to Slysofts products of course but they also discuss other HD movie matters. I am sure some of them are using Windows 8 and will able to give you some pointers.

Hello all. I hope I'm posting this in the correct place. I have recently upgraded from Vista to Windows 8 online with some mixed emotions. Apart from the backup disc not working at all I have other problems. The main one being that it won't play dvds - in fact it won't even recognise that a dvd...

What do you consider to be the best third-party program that plays DVDs and Bluray Disks without a whole lot of bloatware? I don't need something that insists on playing all videos on my hard drive, nor have stupid background processes of dubious function. Thank you kindly.

Choppy WMP playback? in Software and Apps
Anyone else having issues with WMP in Windows 8? It's not happening with other players such as VLC, but playback is choppy and quality looks worse to me than VLC. Seems much heavier on disk access from the sound of the hard disk as well. Codec packs such as Shark007 and CCCP don't have any...
