I downloaded the K-Lite Codec Pack (Mega) the downloaded came with Media Player Classic Home Cinema, i downloaded all updates to the codecs, and the player. I am trying to set it up to play Blue-Ray disc's. I put the blue-Ray disc in my cpu DVD drive and nothing happens. What do i need to do to get this set up like internal filters, external filters etc to play Blue-Ray. All help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards :unsure:

Then you'd need to replace it with a Blu-ray drive in order to be able to play the discs.

Here is the best info i found so far on the web. I think i should be able to play disc's if they are decrypted,not sure?. I dont have some of these codec's



How to play Blu-Ray discs with Media Player Classic

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is possible to play Blu-Ray discs with Media Player Classic after insalling filters mentioned below. Please note that you need to decrypt your files first using software like AnyDVD HD.

There are several variations of Blu-Ray files that are used:
•.m2ts files,
•MPEG-2,
•VC1,
•MPEG-4 AVC

How to set up Media Player Classic to play Blu-Ray discs
Select View -> Options -> External filters
1.Add filter "Haali Media Splitter (AR)", Set merit 00900000, Set Prefer
2.Add Filter "ffdshow audio decoder", Set merit 00700000
3.Add filter "cyberlink H.264/AVC Decoder", Set merit 00900400
4.Add Filter "Sonic Cinemaster Audio Decoder 4.3.0", Set merit 00805000
5.Add Filter "ffdshow video decoder", Set merit 00800000 (late fix to stop ffdshow taking over from cyberlink)
6.Add Filter "Sonic Cinemaster Video Decoder", Set merit 00700000 (late fix to stop Cinemaster Video taking over from ffdshow video)
7.* Add Filter "Cyberlink Video/SP Decoder (pdvd7), set merit "prefer" (Try this for some hardware acceleration in Windows XP)
8.* Add Filter "Nvidia Video Decoder", Set merit "Prefer" (block cyberlink) (try this for hardware acceleration in Windows XP/Vista if you have Nvidia Purevideo)

Select View -> Options -> Internal filters
•Deselect any mpeg, matroska from the source list
•Deselect any AC3, mpeg from the transport filter list

How to set up Windows Media Player 11 to play Blu-Ray discs
•Windows Media Player v11
•cl264dec.ax (Video) (cyberlink H264/AVC Decoder from PowerDVD)
•splitter.ax (Haali media splitter (AR) from Haali Matroska splitter)
•cinemaster audio.dll (Audio)(Sonic Cinemaster Audio Decoder v 4.3 from Cineplayer Codec Pack)
•ffdshow.ax (Audio)(ffdshow audio decoder from FFDshow)

Alternative method of playing Blu-Ray discs using Arcsoft filters from Arcsoft Totalmedia Extreme
Download and install the free version of Arcsoft Totalmedia Extreme and
•Add filter "Arcsoft MPEG Demux", Set to "Prefer"
•Add filter "Arcsoft Video Decoder", Set to "Prefer"
•Add filter "Arcsoft Audio Decoder HD", Set to "Prefer"
•BLOCK any other splitter/demuxers you already have in your external filter list

Now you can play Blu-Ray discs with Media Player Classic and Windows Media Player. Please note that this requires a lot of processor power.

Advantages of using Media Player Classic
•Full resolution screen capture of the movie
•You can zoom the movie to get rid of the black bars (numpad key 9)
•You don't need an approved graphics card, almost any PCI-e card will work (Nvidia 7300 at 80% CPU)
•You don't have to waste time with menus, trailers and adverts

Disadvantages of using Media Player Classic
•Minimum processor Core2duo
•No Dolby TrueHD tracks available using Haali splitter (You can Nero Audio Decoder 2 and Nero Splitter, but it requires the purchase of the HD-DVD/Blu-ray plug-in for Nero 7)
•Not very good with AGP graphics cards

If the Blu-Ray is on a DVD in the AVCHD format, it might play.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVCHD

(I have created small AVCHD DVD that played on my PS3, but wouldn't play on anything else)

But AFAIK, you can't play a Blu-Ray disc on a DVD player, it simply won't read it.

You need to buy a Blu-Ray player.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. very interested if you can.

What you saw presumed a decrypted BluRay disc. Since the laser in a BluRay drive is different than the laser in a DVD or CD drive. Blue vs red laser. You will need to have a BluRay reader or Burner to read a BluRay disc.

If you think logically about it, if a DVD drive could read a BluRay disc why do they make BluRay reader drives? Or BluRay Burners if a DVD drive could burn them?

Ok,
All post are correct. I will inquire about getting a Blue-Ray burner or a Blue-Ray player. Thanks everyone.

FWIW I use BluRay burners to read and write. 25Gb per single layer, whee!

I have tried three brands

in order of how I liked them from Best to worst.

Best Pioneer 207
Next LiteOn iHBS 112
least compatible with different brands of media was the LG 10X from last year

I should mention I get the best results with Verbatim HTL media not their LTH media.
I also mostly use the burner for data back up.

Good Luck
Roger
