Blu-ray Hi-Def Equipment : BluRay Player Software Which Actually Works??

BluRay Player Software Which Actually Works??

windows 10 HP laptop. windows media player will NOT play blurays. obviously the discs are encrypted. i have a stand alone sony bluray player but that defeats the ease of simply inserting disc and watching without the need for a cable and the mess.

i installed from the microsoft store a program called bluray player. it doesnt recognize that there's a disc inserted.

VLC has a workaround with some bits of code put into your program files but that too doesnt work.

does anyone know of a legit program–which is STRAIGHTFORWARD– to install which will play blu-ray discs?

thank you
