I got the Windows 7 premium home, 64bit, and find the windows media player can not decode the Blu-ray codec. My questions is where can I get these codecs? I googled but didn’t get it(Virus issues)Robin CKeymaster
Hello Madyaux, Have you tried VLC media player ? many says it works just fine for playing blu ray files in Windows 7.
Also give a try with KMPlayer (http://filehippo.com/download_kmplayer/) if VLC didnt work. To avoid viruses, malware or adware attacks, download any software from their official website only.

Only a Blu-ray Player could decode the Blu-ray disc. VLC is a back up if you don’t find other better ones for its ability is restricted to some commercial discs. Try Macgo Windows Blu-ray Player with all your Blu-rays, I am sure it won’t let you down. Get it from official website mac bluray playerJacobBrownGuest
Blu-Ray is a patented technology so it requires codecs (as you surmised) to be purchased (you may not have known that part).
Check this link:
To play a Blu-ray Disc, you need to use a non-Microsoft program that supports Blu-ray playback and a device capable of reading Blu-ray Discs.
Might read this too:
If this isn’t working, you can get a free player with Blu-ray compatibility for Windows 7 by visiting the website: http://download.cnet.com/Macgo-Windows-Blu-ray-Player/3000-13632_4-75453680.html
