PLAY DVD AND BLU-RAY MOVIES IN WINDOWS
Want to play DVD-Videos in Windows 10? Both Kodi (www. kodi.tv) and VLC Media Player (www.videolan.org/vlc) offer free support (including menu access) – VLC should work with non-region 2 discs, too. Simply pop the disc in and it should play like normal.
Blu-ray discs are trickier – the following free add-ons should enable you to play most older AACS-encrypted discs along with a handful of BD+ discs. Point your browser at https:// vlc-bluray.whoknowsmy.name/, then download the Keys database and place it in C:\ ProgramData\aacs. Next download the relevant AACS dynamic library for your PC (either 32-bit or 64-bit), then place the downloaded DLL file inside your VLC program folder. on your PC.
Launch VLC (a portable version is also available from https://portableapps.com/ apps/music_video/vlc_ portable) and pop your Blu-ray into a compatible drive. In the VLC app, choose Media > Open Disc. Select Blu-ray, choose your starting title (there’s no menu support) and click Play. After a delay – and if you’re lucky – you’ll be able to watch your Blu-ray!
Armed with the right downloads you can play a decent number of Blu-ray movies for free with VLC Media Player.
