Ratings and Reviews
The app was confusing at first, definitley not user friendly. Once you get the hang of it though it is a life saver! I am using a macbook pro with retina and an external LG blu ray drive. When you open the app you should see a box with the name of your movie. simply double cick and it will bring you to all the files within the disc. This is where it got confusing, but the good news is, all you have to do is look at the bottom right and click ‘open’ and your movie should load. This worked for me on many movies, and I was able to even see the title menu and navigate to chapters, scene selection, pt 1, pt2, etc, just as you would on a normal tv. The hitch came when I put in a blu ray disc for a tv show, instead of a movie. It does not play the ad’s like it normally would before bringing you to the disc menu, not to mention that it doesnt even do that! I get no menu at all, it simply just plays the first episode immediatley. This wouldnt be all that bad if it was in some ‘play all’ mode, but that is not the case either. For me, as soon as I watch or skip past the first episode on the disc, it reruns that episode. there is no way to access later episodes.
This app is great for watching movies even though it may be frustrating to work at first, but it is terrible for watching tv shows as their is no menu for those.
Better than the Aiseesoft garbage I PAID FOR
so far this player software is excellent, the BD’s load, you get the authentic menus and navigation and can easily right click on the screen within the player to bring up subtitle/language options etc. I paid about $50 for the Aiseesoft player which is junk in comparison. With Aiseesoft half the BD’s won’t play, they will load to a garbage looking menu, then crash… some play, many won’t play at all and you have to select language version via the ‘other titles’ junk menu which is laughable. The latest version of the Aiseesoft player even crops off the sides of the image just a hair, which is annoying… I’m only mentioning that player because I hate it and paid for it.
This apparently free player is amazing since it functions just like a stand alone BD player. The picture quality is great this Leawo player offers brightness and contrast adjustments… the gamma seems locked? anyway it’s great so far after just having down loaded it. So far I’m impressed in comparison to Aiseesoft junker.
UPDATE, yes with Catalina it stopped working entirely and I was prompted to update Java runtime? I did... still didn't work so I deleted everything. Now with update for Catalina I re-installed and got the same exact prompt to update Java, not even going to bother. It was a premium free BD player, but now it's a headache. I went back and reinstalled Aiseesoft.
It Works, Mostly
First, I did not have the problem The__Ogre did. I suspect he was confused by the program’s rather unintuitive interface. Sometimes it shows you a file-select dialog, and he may have tried to open one of the internal files rather than just clicking Open. The program plays just fine for me, with one glaring exception; it seems unable to access the disc menu. It just starts playing the main feature. Thus, I was unable to access the Special Features that are included on most all discs these days. There is a “Menu…" option available, but it is greyed out. I don’t know if I am missing something, but this is a major drawback for me.
