    I use the Cyberlink Blu-Ray Suite. It came free with my LG burner, though. It seems to work pretty well.

      i bought my blue ray player on newegg and it did not come with any software i used the Cyberlink trile version but it expired. I don't feel like spending $50 on blue ray player software, I'd rather buy a game :-). Please anyone?

        Try VLC. It might support Blu-Rays now. Other than that, if you bought a retail BD drive, it should have come with a free "lite" version of PowerDVD which supports Blu-Ray disks.

          There is also the option of ripping the files to your hd, and playing the mt2s files directly.

            Windows Media Player 11 and 12 also supports BRs. You have to have a HDCP capable monitor and graphics card.

                  MPC-HC has support, but what works or not is hardware-dependant. Also things are broken like menus, certain codecs and other stuff probably, so i recommend you buy a software player at this point. Powerdvd or Cyberlink works, or TMT3 which i can recommend.

                    I believe the catch is that you have to use a HDMI cable. Not sure if it'll work with DVI. I know it doesn't work with VGA-sub.

                        That makes sense. Thank You Acreo Aeneas.

                          No problem. At least War confirms that you do need to hook up your display via HDMI.

                            I also learned that DVI w/ HDCP can work too. But I'm not as familiar with that. I really suggest just shelling out the bucks for the software based player. There's gotta be a cheap one around somewhere!
