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.

"Poor excuse for software"

December 15, 2015  |  By thorlo6

2015-12-15 12:37:52  |  By thorlo6

 |  Version: Leawo Blu-ray Player 1.8.8.0

Pros

Supposed to play Blu-ray discs and has in the past with earlier versions of the software. Will play DVD's with absolute clarity and excellent sound.

Cons

In the current version, 1.9.1.4, which is the free version of player, will not play any Blu-ray discs. When attempted, will show only a green heavily pixilated picture. IMHO, this is a sorry excuse for software that is supposed to play discs.

Summary

Don't waste your time and HDD space to install this software. It isn't worth thee multiple headaches it causes.

"Easy to use, simple functionality, now free"

July 28, 2015  |  By jrchittum

2015-07-28 16:53:28  |  By jrchittum

 |  Version: Leawo Blu-ray Player 1.8.8.0

Pros

FREE
quick start-up
All basic functionality you'd expect

Cons

Has issues sending multichannel audio to different devices. Haven't tried multichannel HDMI as I don't have a receiver. Internal audio card and external MOTU interface don't respond to multiple channels, just stereo. There is probably a way around this using some sort of routing software, but I haven't sorted that out yet.

Summary

Been trying different software. WinDVD Pro11 had major start issues and even worse playback. PowerDVD didn't work with any audio output other than the HDMI, and any "acceleration" meant stuttery horrid playback (with my AMD 290 4gb video card).

So far in my search, this is the first piece of software to play multiple blu-rays without any issues. If you want 3D or BD-Live, it's not in the player yet, but they do update, so it could be on the way. So if you don't need that, or analog multichannel audio, it's a great free option.

"Super Slow - Stinks!!!"

April 18, 2015  |  By safetymel

2015-04-18 09:30:34  |  By safetymel

 |  Version: Leawo Blu-ray Player 1.7.0.5

Pros

It works. That's about it

Cons

This thing is super slow, it literally takes 4 or 5 hours to rip a movie.
The menus are confusing and there is no way to tell which version of the movie you are getting, you may get the one with subtitles then you have to try another one (another 4-5 hours).

Summary

I would NOT recommend this product to anyone.

4. Full screen and choose audio track and subtitle
5. Multiple languages supported
6. Support Windows 8.1 perfectly. (Some software does not support the 8.1 version)

 |  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.
