I've been asked many times how to play Video DVD and Blu-Ray (BR) on Windows for years. Until now I've always lamented the lack of free BR player software. But last week the CNET Cheapskate published a freebie player. I'll try it in a few days. Link -> https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-watch-dvds-for-free-in-windows-10/ Most of us know VLC Player will handle Video DVDs and unprotected Blu-Ray but so far in years I've yet to find an unprotected Blu-Ray title. Be sure to watch for what media you want to play when you first launch this player. Many folk miss that and gripe later about …

I don't care if there is a Bluray drive built in or not. I have an external one that didn't cost a fortune. What I would like is for Apple or some third party to release some proper software support for Bluray films, in particular those that have some form of protection included in them.

Addressing last weeks Securi-Tay conference hosted by the Abertay Ethical Hacking Society in Scotland, Stephen Tomkinson from the NCC Group detailed how Blu-ray players can do more than play videos; they can open up a new attack surface for the hacker. Tomkinson demonstrated a new tool that had been released in order to enable the investigation of embedded network devices, and used the network exposed features on a common Blu-ray player as an example. He showed how an innocent looking Blu-ray disc can actually circumvent sandboxes and present the hacker with control of the underlying systems. Of course, that innocent …

Does anyone can recommend some application to play Blu-ray on pc? I have CyberLink PowerDVD 8 that came with optical drive, but often there is a lag (visible stop in playback). I would love if VLC player people added BR support to application, but at the moment libbluray is more of trouble then success

These days, video game consoles aren't just for video games anymore. There's a CD, DVD and Blu-Ray player, internet, Twitter, Facebook, chat and more. But don't you wish you could watch MOVIES? Oh, wait, you can. Think the way you watch movies on your console is good enough? One company challenges consumers to think again. [ATTACH=left]16608[/ATTACH]FlicStick Corp announced today that they will be releasing their patent pending "FlicStick Movie System." For me, that name means slapping obnoxious people with a ruler when they talk during my movie. For you, that could mean a new way to watch your favorite flicks. …

If you’re looking for a competitively priced portable Blu-ray alternative, look no further than Plextor’s recently shipped PX-B12OU. Available currently only in Europe for €92 including VAT, the 4x BD-ROM drive is an insanely affordable, fully USB operated external option for users still searching for their Blu-ray glass slipper. Not only can it play [I]The Dark Knight[/I] in stunning 1080p quality on your next flight, it also doubles as an 8x DVD+RW and a 24x CD+RW drive for all your basic computing needs. [ATTACH]16004[/ATTACH]The only thing rivaling its function is its form, which is a completely minimized experience. Similar products …

The land of maple syrup, curling, Mounties, hockey, Mexican beer's sudsy love child, free healthcare, and self-titled bacon has just obtained another claim to fame: the first Netflix stream-only endeavor. [ATTACH]15908[/ATTACH]Netflix, the world's leading movie and TV subscription service with over 13 million subscribers, is extending its services to Canada later this fall by offering its inaugural stream-only service. They opted out of the DVD/Blu-ray delivery portion of memberships commonly seen in the United States because the costs of shipping them via French trading boats up the Mississippi River would have been astronomical. Canadian users will be able to instantly …

On March 10th Panasonic teamed up with Best Buy, DIRECTV and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to offer consumers a "Full HD 3D" home theater system. The set includes a 50-inch class (49.9” measured diagonally) [attach=right]14052[/attach] Panasonic VIERA VT20 Plasma 3D HDTV and a Panasonic BDT300 3D Blu-ray Disc Player and it retails for $2899.99. For that price you also get one [yes just one] pair of 3D glasses. The glasses look great, resembling high-tech sunshades but in my opinion they cost too much [around $150 a pop]. The first customer to purchase this set from Best Buy’s store in …
