Hi I'm looking to purchase,but free is better,some software which will allow DVD & possibly BLU RAY playback on W8.1 . I did look into buying Windows Media Player,but It will upgrade to 8.1 Pro,at a cost of $99 . No chance. Thnak you

VLC should work Click here I've used it for DVD's but never tried it with Blu Ray.

If you've got a blu-ray disc player installed then I would have thought that it came with Blu-Ray software for playing.

Hi Thanks for the help . Will have a look at the suggestions so far. I have a DVD drive,but its on its last legs. I will be replacing it with a BLU RAY drive,but the ones I have seen are OEM,and are not supplied with software. Thanks

I would download the software on Lazarus 2nd link and activate it before the offer expires,wont do any harm saving it on your laptop

Hi, I have installed the software,but it states its only valid for 12months? Thanks
