Rip and Convert Blu-ray to AVI on Mac or PC
I got a G20AJ and it doesn't have some preinstalled Asus playback software for Blu-rays or DVDs after I upgrade from Windows 8.1. There's no feasible replacement. Any advice?
A nasty surprise: Asus computers don't come with Blu-ray discs playback functionality. That may seem reasonable as the optical disc drives have been left out of new ultrathin laptops and desktops these days. Besides, Asus doesn't want to pay the mandatory licensing fees for the privilege of playing Blu-ray disc.
But if you're an avid Blu-rays collector and are wondering how to play a Blu-ray disc on Asus laptop, you can try either of these solutions:
Install Blu-ray Player Software
While there are a bevy of Blu-ray playback programs, Blu-ray Player remains one of the most attractive and feature-filled Blu-ray players. This software can not only play non-copy-protected Blu-ray discs, but also play region-locked discs, which keeps you free from out of downloading additional codecs or plugins issue. And it offers the option to select the specific Blu-ray title or chapter for playback with menu system. It also provides Dolby TrueHD lossless and DTS-HD Master Audio for the highest quality sound.
You wouldn't recognize it also contains a DVD & video audio player software under the hood if just take a look at its intuitive interface. It allows you to play DVD discs, DVD folder, DVD ISO image file, and most multimedia files. With its ability to play Blu-ray discs on Asus laptop as well as play back most video & audio formats, it is an excellent and all-in-one Blu-ray player.
