Previously, we have discussed how to play blu-ray on Windows 10/8/7 with VLC. However, VLC doesn't offer the direct support for Blu-ray disc and most importantly, it is unable to play the commercial (DRM-protected) disc.
So, it there a reliable Blu-ray player for Windows 10 that can play any Blu-ray disc, ISO file or Blu-ray Folder?
Yes, there are a few good Blu-ray Players for Windows 10. Let's have a look.
Part 1. The Best Windows 10 Blu-ray Player
The 3 most well-known blu-ray player software in the market include Leawo Blu-ray player, Macgo Blu-ray Player and VideoSolo Blu-ray Player.
Leawo Blu-ray player is a free player. It is a good alternative to VLC for playing Blu-ray Disc. However, this software is unable to play region-code-locked Blu-rays.
Macgo Blu-ray is the first commercial solution for playing full high-definition BD video on the Macintosh. It can play almost all kinds of blu-ray files smoothly with high quality. And, recently Macgo Blu-ray disc for Windows was released.
The last one is VideoSolo Blu-ray Player.
