Best media player/burner software

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!

    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

    Here is how i rank them in performance for blu-ray playback ^

    Imgburn is #1 nothing compares for burning your media

    Imgburn is FREE but nothing compares
  4. I was looking at Nero Platinum 11:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832111028

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

    Thanks!

  5. OK, what do u want to do with software?

    What project do u have in mind?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  9. The last 2 versions of Nero burn pretty well , their blu-ray player software is the best!
  10. 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?
