    Sorry what I meant was what playback software is recommended. I have a Pioneer BDR-205 re-writer installed. I need it to be capable of 3D playback and utilise the HD audio formats.

    Since TMT doesn't work on Win 10 you're pretty much limited to the bloatware that is PowerDVD. The rest are pretty much tat, although never tried Nero's BR Player so can't offer opinion of it. Media Players like VLC and MPC Home Cinema will play main titles but if you want disc navigation, stream selection etc, you're stuck with PowerDVD. Windows is dismally short of decent BR playback software!

    The OP asked about BR playback, by that I assume he means BD (disc playback) - not mkv/mp4 whatever?

    Kodi for BR playback!!! Anything I can find about BR playback in it says it's not supported and then gives guides to ripping the main title and encoding to mkv/mp4 whatever! Which means the OP has to spend a long time ripping and encoding, not to mention learning the ripping and encoding process.

    OP please clarify, you mean disc playback or 1080/720 encodes, mkv/mp4 or whatever?

    I did mean disk playback. With regards to powerdvd is there any preferred versions as I have heard that hardware acceleration is iffy in some versions.

    You guys are aware that the OP said disc playback - not media player.

    Which means he may want to navigate menus etc - which to the best of my knowledge none of the usual media players can do. VLC, MPC Home Cienema etc don't - they will just play main movie .m2ts file.

    If he wants to browse through menus and stuff, then he has to use a paid software such as Cyber PowerDVD and alike. There's no free software IMHO that's capable of that.

    I already said that in Post #5. No one has mentioned "free" or otherwise.
