Last response: in Applications

So I want to get a media player/burner software for christmas but I don't know what to ask for. I mainly want a good one because I have a blu-ray burner/player that I haven't been able to use because it came only with trial software and now is unable to burn/play blu-rays any more unless I buy the software.

So, I need the media player to be able to play blu-rays and burn blu-ray discs as well. Any thoughts? I hear Nero is good but which one?

Thanks!

Those are free I see. Do you lose anything with those compared to using something like Nero?

I own Nero HD , Power DVD Ultra , and WinDVD Pro all which play blu-rays:

1-Nero HD
2-Corel WinDVD Pro
3-PowerDVD Ultra

Imgburn is #1 nothing compares for burning your media

I was looking at Nero Platinum 11:

How does that compare? What would I be losing if I got just normal Nero HD?

Thanks!

I prefer to use specific tools for different tasks. I am not a big fan of all-in-ones.

U may end up paying for something, that u will not need. So post more info n what do u are going to do with BD disc.

Nero Platinum 11 has the best blu-ray player of the three I mentioned , but nero as a burning program doesn't compare to imgburn.

I agree with Area51reopened ^^^, and if u are not sure, u can always try the Nero suite, before the purchase riccardi50 : )

I used Nero for burning only in the distant past, had no issues with it.

It was OEM licence, that came with the DVD drive.

The last 2 versions of Nero burn pretty well , their blu-ray player software is the best!

What's the difference between Nero 11 Platinum and their suite?

I like the idea of the platinum because it has a blu-ray media player as well as I can edit video that I have recorded in a lot of different formats. It just seemed like a good all around media player/editing tool.

Your thoughts?
