I have been using Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 I've had it since it was released. I cannot fault it's playback of Blu-rays.

However I don't have the best PC in the world, I put it together myself and I find PowerDVD bloated. I hope for something "light" like VLC that will be able to handle Blu-rays one day.

I wish Media Player Classic Home Cinema would play Blu-rays. But I don't know if they actually do or not, yet.

Default Best player For Bluray (and perhaps everything else)

I want to qualify my statements by telling you I have tried nearly every software concept for HTPC playback over the last few years, I am very well versed in HTPC building and maintenance and have been doing so for many years.

You really want to try the current version of Jriver MC16.
This is especially so if your a newbie and are starting with a Nvidia based Multicore clean slate system .

Since the inclusion of project "Red October" at Jriver when you install JRMC16 it seeks out the best codec installs current LAV filters & MADvr "Nvidia only", not leaving you sorting out codecs and splitting spending hours in forums looking for help.
If you run at full screen it automatically put this JRMC in Exclusive mode and it works pretty darn well. Audio with this software is handled better than any software I have seen or tried, It even will allow volume control of optical output to your AVR. (one less remote to juggle) other perks allow Multiple Zones and incredible equalization in the software DSP section. You really could just use your HTPC as a preamp and skip the AVR with the right soundcard, I use a Auzentec 7.1 card but you may want a current HDMI audio card instead. I plan on using my next build with just a external 7.1 amp a HTPC & Jriver MC.

However JRMC16 is a very comprehensive system and there is no properly formatted manual due to constant feature set inclusions and upgrades "this is a good thing!". Try it for the ample 45 day trial as is to see how you like it just understand there are so many ways to customize JRMC it will surprise you but it seems to work well "Out of the box" without dwelling on the multitude of optional features included.

I do not work for or get kickbacks from J River or any other software or hardware manufacturer

I use WMC7, MyMovies by Brian Binnerup & KMPlayer and once I have figured out how to use JRMC as a external linked player for WMC7 integrated MyMovies playback I will replace KMPlayer for JRMC permanently. I still like WMC7 for TV DVR use but who knows JRMC might change that soon too. So I will be watching for XML related to MyMovies in the meantime.

I'm using ArcSoft and it's great. But I'm using it for HD DVDs since I'm buying the ASUS 12X Blu-ray disc burnable/re-writable thing for my computer next month. Can I rip a HD DVD to my computer, take off the dubbing, non-English subtitles, then restructure it as a Blu-ray iso to burn out? I already have several hundreds of 1080p film trailers grabbed off of YouTube via DownloadHelper and was considering making an iso to use with DaemonTools until I actually get the Blu-ray disc burner in September.
I'm going to have my computer which is usable but not fully completed also as an HTPC along with video gaming, making Blu-rays and other stuff. More of what's broadcasted on HDTV and what isn't available anywhere.

Thanks! I'm using AnyDVD HD to rip the HD DVDs and then going to keep the same sort of file structure for Blu-ray. But reconfigured for Blu-ray and keeping the menus. Removing the dubbed languages and only keeping the English subtitles.
Any reason why Arcsoft has subtitles still on the image when the dialog stops? More because I do subtitles out of habit. Can't wait to get the ASUS 12X Blu-ray disc burner in September!

EDIT: I'll also be making Blu-ray and AVCHD isos from stuff broadcast not on Blu-ray disc yet, then run them through DaemonTools to see if they work. My first one is gonna be a 1080i file from the Japanese broadcast of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Only 17.3GBs. So with the AVCHD mixer thing I could use a ton of film trailers, organise them in order and then make an AVCHD from them? Would be damn awesome since the majority of them are for older films grabbed with DownloadHelper in 1080p and 720p from various websites.
But the majority of downloadable films which were broadcast in HD, 720p or 1080i/p, are rarely enough to fit fully on a 25GB Blu-ray. More for interim of course.

Please excuse my ignorance but are you guys saying if I download a program to my windows Vista PC my laptop will then play BDS?

Wouldn't I need a BD optical drive or would that only be needed to burn BDS?

You still need a Blu-ray drive, the thread is for Software to play the movies.

So, none of you would recommend WinDVD? If so, why is that? Is it that much worse that either PowerDVD or TMT?

WinDVD is my Blu-ray player software of choice when watching Blu-ray's on my laptop which has an internal BD drive. Runs circles around PowerDVD and TMT. Plays back Blu-ray's effortlessly. For integration with WMC7 you'd want to go with PowerDVD or TMT though. For my HTPC I use TMT as it integrates best with WMC7 and MyMovies.

I just built a new dedicated home theater pc sun.. Works really well. I'm using Any DVD right now to skip all the bs at the beginning of the movies on BD. I'm trying out TMT 5 and Power DVD 12. Verdict is still out. I'm just using the trials. I'm also trying to get XBMC going,but so far it won't start. It crashes when I click on it in WMC.. I'll figure it out tho.

I just got Mac Blu-ray Player for Windows, it works really well for movies. It doesn't support any menus but if you just want to play the movie it works great.

If you want to play special features you have to know exactly what title (by number) it is on the disc or its exact length. With TV shows the episodes are usually out of order so it's really only good if you are looking for a specific episode and you can recognize it by clicking around in each episode.

I would like to suggest the new one Leawo Blu-ray Player, which can be gotten free from their beta test page. The reviews of the software are all positive and I myself have tried the program with my blu-ray discs, simple but great watching experience.
