VLC – Read Blu Ray disks

Created: 2014/08/16 ; Modified: 2014/08/16

When you buy a Blu Ray disk drive for your computer, the PowerDVD software normally comes with it and is supposed to read these disks. Sadly, that application is slow and has many bugs (as an example, I cannot read the Blu Ray disks because I got two screens!!). This is where VLC comes to save the day.
