Editors' review

A video media playback application for optical disc and file-based content, Leawo Blu-ray Player provides a decent playback experience and is now compatible with the Windows 8 touch interface. Sadly, it lacks several important features.

Pros

Sleek interface: Heavily inspired by Windows Media Player, Leawo Blu-ray Player proves to be one of the quickest and nicest to navigate players we've tested. The intuitive settings are just one click away, and we particularly appreciated the audio output activation option through HDMI that made the connection of our laptop to an external TV much easier than with most similar applications.

Fast, region-free Blu-ray playback: Blu-ray reading took no more than 20 seconds, faster than most home theater players.

Good file support: The comprehensive file repertoire includes all mainstream formats. Keep in mind, though, that the resolution is limited to 1080p.

Cons

File management: Browsing files is cumbersome, creating playlists is difficult, and digital file organization is practically nowhere to be seen.

Lack of standard disc playback features: 3D Blu-ray playback, BD-Live support, and auto-resume are now all basic features supported by most players; this app's lack of these features is inexplicable. Also, audio CD playback should have been a default feature.

Menu languages: Although localizing the interface should be relatively easy for this kind of app, few languages are supported.

Bottom Line

Leawo Blu-ray Player has deep optical disc roots, exhibits strong performance, and sports a satisfactory interface. If the inexplicable lack of key Blu-ray features does not bother you, the annual subscription cost of $39.95 probably will. Still, you may want to give the trial edition a go, since Blu-ray playback is the only function disabled after the 30-day trial period.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Leawo Blu-ray Player 1.4.0.47.

    5. Multiple languages supported
    6. Support Windows 8.1 perfectly. (Some software does not support the 8.1 version)

    "find program but bad registration system"

    February 24, 2014   |   By QUERTKING

    Version: Leawo Blu-ray Player 1.4.0.47

    Pros

    the program works quite well. it really does what it's claimed to do. song duplicates are removed, most songs are fixed, i could also apply the fixings to my itunes or music folders. that's fine.

    Cons

    the registration system/service should be improved, once i registered, it reminded me registration error. the registration succeeded after several tries.

    "nice player, but a little slow"

    January 19, 2014   |   By landonqsing2013

    Version: Leawo Blu-ray Player 1.4.0.47

    Pros

    The overall performance is quite good: play multiple movie sources (Blu-ray,dvd, video, audio, iso files, etc.), easy to use, stable, simple guidance, etc.

    Cons

    disc loading costs a little big long time. i played a Blu-ray disc, it takes several seconds to load the disc and start to play.

    Summary

    Great Blu-Ray player but could use Intel Quick-Sync or Nvidia CUDA to reduce CPU usage during playback, also it would be great to reduce loading time of the software.

    "Quite nice app, needs improving though"

    January 16, 2014   |   By AlexLin963

    Version: Leawo Blu-ray Player 1.4.0.47

    Pros

    1. The image and audio quality is satisfactory. When i play some Blu-ray movies with this app, i could hear it clearly.
    2. Fast disc loading. Maybe it's because of my computer.
    3. The program is quite easy to use.

    Cons

    1. It seems that Full Menu is now supported when playing from disc, but not when playing from ISO. Please allow Full Menu when playing from ISO.
    2. There are some blu-ray titles it cannot play, eg Bluscenes Underwater Cozumel and Majestic Waterfalls. Interestingly, the titles it cannot handle correspond to the ones that PotPlayer cannot play.
    3. It would be a plus if it could support blu-ray 3D in the future.
    4. One-Year License is not welcome to me.

    Summary

    In all, a very nice Blu-ray media player app, but could be better.

    "worth trying media player"

    December 23, 2013   |   By Ivy0403

    Version: Leawo Blu-ray Player 1.4.0.47

    Pros

    1. region-free - the most desired feature for me, with which i could play various bd discs freely.
    2. video and audio quality is satisfactory, no quality loss.
    3. supports a lot of video and audio formats.
    4. customizeable skins

    Cons

    subtitles sometimes seen to be out of synchronization with audios, but being solved after I downloaded another subtitle file.

    Summary

    In one word, this program is worth trying. I have used several versions of this app for I purchased it. obviously, i saw the changes of this app from its beginning to now. It's been optimizing all the time. but I think Leawo might faster its step.
