I have an asus optical drive in my pc that i just recently built. I can not play any blu ray movies because I dont have a software to play them with. Is it good to pay for the software or are there free ones that are just as good?
Because of the Blu-ray license, there's no really good free Blu-ray player software. VLC could play the part of non-commercial discs. If you don't wanna pay too much, Windows Blu-ray Player from Macgo is a good choice which is also easy to operate. I think it will work fine with your asus drive. http://download.cnet.com/Macgo-Windows-Blu-ray-Player/3...;9
You should pay for the software as there is no perfect free tools in the market now.
For VLC, it can only deal with some old discs after the necessary settings(install AACS keys)
Yes, that's right. You are supposed to meet some problem when playing Blu-ray disc with VLC player. It's too limited though free to get. What I mentioned above is a very cost effective tool among all Blu-ray players. I only offered a download address.
