How to Play Blu-ray Discs in Win

If you recently got a Blu-ray player / burner drive over the holidays, you’ll be annoyed to find that Blu-ray won’t play by default in Windows 7. Here we’ll take a look at some of the options you do have with 3rd-party bundled programs. 

Media Player Classic(MPC) can’t play Blu-ray is because BluRays disc contain all kinds of protections that prevent playback on unauthorized players. It is to prevent discs from being copied/ripped. Media Player Classic and its forks are standard media players in the K-Lite Codec Pack and the Combined Community Codec Pack. MPC Homecinema supports a wide range of decoding formats and file formats, following are the details: 

Media Player Classic is primarily based on the DirectShow architecture and therefore automatically uses installed DirectShow decoding filters. For instance, after the open source DirectShow decoding filter ffdshow has been installed, fast and high quality decoding and postprocessing of the MPEG-4 ASP, H.264, and Flash Video formats is available in MPC. MPC-HC can play videos in these formats directly without ffdshow.
