Editors' Review

Aurora Blu-ray Media Player lets you play files from a disk or from your hard drive. Whether it's YouTube videos or the latest releases on Blu-ray you want to watch, you can enjoy it right from your computer with this convenient program.

Pros

Excellent interface: All controls for this app are clear and accessible, even to users who are not familiar with this type of program. You can open any video files and begin playback directly from the app's main interface without hassle, and enjoy a crisp, clear picture in no time. And if you'd like to share movie details or your own review with your friends, you can do so right from the app.

Integrated adjustments: You can adjust the picture quality and aspect ratio as the movie is playing. Changes happen almost instantly and don't interrupt the video playback.

Cons

Trial watermarks: The free trial of this app plays downloaded content without issue. But if you want to try out a Blu-ray, you'll have to contend with a substantial watermark. It's nice to see how the app works, though, before you decide to buy it. The purchase price is $49.95.

Bottom Line

This app delivers on all of its promised features. While it didn't blow us away with the variety of features it offered, it's a solid alternative for playing Blu-ray discs, DVDs, and any other video or audio file you choose.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Aurora Blu-ray Media Player 2.14.3

"STAY AWAY."

November 11, 2014  |  By leslie.hoxworth

 |  Version: Aurora Blu-ray Media Player 2.14.6

Pros

It plays blu ray discs. 80% of the time.

Cons

Cannot display the official blu-ray menu. Need to find a different chapter, episode, or special feature? Good luck. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to find what your looking for. The menu is absolute rubbish.
Subtitle function only works when it feels like it, which is rarely.
Some discs don't play at all for some inexplicable reason
There is no fast forward function, only next and previous chapter. Tried holding it down which usually works in most cases. No dice. You CANNOT FAST FORWARD OR REWIND, but have to blindly click on the track, hoping to find your place.
Customer service claims 30 day money back guarantee. Contacted them twice within 30 days, never heard anything, certainly did not receive a refund.

Any one of these problems on their own would be tolerable, but altogether, makes this software worth avoiding. AVOID THIS PRODUCT.

Summary

Not even remotely worth the trouble. Look elsewhere.

""Free Player""

 |  Version: Aurora Blu-ray Media Player 2.14.6

Pros

It plays blu ray

Cons

When you do download this from the site, although it does not have malware, it leaves a stupid message in the middle of the screen saying it's an unregistered version. I'm going to go somewhere else and pay since they tried to draw me in like that. You can keep it Aurora
