Frankly recommending, Mac Blu-ray Player for windows is a professional bluray video player for windows, which can play any format of movie, video, audio, music, and photo and adding DTS5.1, Mac Blu-ray Player for windows can play Blu-ray Disc or Blu-ray ISO on your PC with the extremely HD Blu-ray entertainment.

Of course the hardware is the base to play a seamless movie on the Win 8, but a powerful player is also important especially in the Blu-ray playback course. I only trust Macgo Blu-ray player for Windows. It is just in time of a Halloween discount in its website

Windows 8 is more than enough to play Blu-Ray discs because it is the newly released operating system with advanced graphical capabilities when it's used with a powerful graphic card. If you are trying to play a Blu-ray file, then you can use any video player available (VlC, Media Player Classic, BsPlayer, KMPlayer, GomPlayer, etc.). The problem is not with the players but with the hardware. You will need a powerful computer to play these files or discs close to perfection.

You can download a player named VLC to have a try play your BDs. First, your PC is equipped with BD drive room.

Yes, first, VLC, but the software requires some configuration files playing blu-ray. Access the following website: and download the KEYDB.cfg file. Place the file in the following directory: %APPDATA%/aacs/. Type this command in Start > Run.
After this process, download the second file (32 or 64bit) and place it in the installation directory of VLC. The file that you need to download is libaacs.dll.
After this process, reboot VLC and the Blu-ray discs will be available for playback.

Second, download and install professional Blu-ray Program, such as Macgo, Aurora, DVDFab or PowerDVD. Visit this page to download.
