I tried calling Microsoft support, but they couldn’t help. I have several Blu-Ray movies in my collection, and now that my Blu-Ray player died I want to play them on my computer. However, all I can seem to do is browse the files inside the discs. Windows Media Player and the Movies & TV app won’t play the Blu-Ray, either.
Windows 10 Not Play Blu-ray Natively
Windows 10 doesn’t include the built-in ability to play Blu-ray discs because Microsoft would have to pay a licensing fee to include that functionality. That option would drive up the cost of every single copy of Windows 10. To play Blu-ray in Windows 10, I tried using VLC and I went through all the rigamarole of installing these open-source BD players, but now when I try to play Blu-ray with VLC, it jsut crashes immediately and says it couldn’t send the crash report.
