That is not a playback plug-in. According to Nero's tech support, it will NOT allow playback, only authoring of blu-ray.

Maybe I'll try the PDVD7.3 though.

There was also a patch for the LG Blu-Ray/HD-DVD player as well for 7.3. It also pertained to black screens while watching BD. How do you like Arcsoft TotalMedia does it support hardware acceleration for ATI/Nvidia?

And they wonder why BLu Ray adoption has been slow.

Umm... yeah... I think it makes more sense just to throw a cheap blu-ray player off to the side instead spending all the money on the software and working through the nightmares of software/hardware/driver compatability... Bluray players are like $199 now and probably will be even cheaper come black friday....

Well it's the only software I can use so I can't really comment on it.
But it does have hardware acceleration. (though I didn't tested for it, at least the BD movie played smothly)

Nero 9 is crap. Even w/ the blu-ray plugin it didn't work for me.

I'm using Powerdvd 8 Ultra, and it's been good so far.

Here's a slightly OT question- does Windows MC have support for Blue-RAY and HD-DVD? Is there a way to use MC for playback of those discs?
