I have tried the Free program, Leawo Blu-ray Player, and while it does work ( I haven't tried a Blu-ray yet) it is so exceptionally slow that it is practically unworkable. I would gladly pay for a good program, but I don't know which ones are good? Does MS address this anywhere? And why is it that I can't get a Blu-ray player installed into my PC that already plays those discs? I would gladly pay the extra to make it more convenient, as this shopping while blind is not exactly the most efficient way to go about this, imho.
