How to play Blu-ray disc with MPC-HC?
"I got a new BluRay drive for my PC today. It's all installed fine, I've stuck a BluRay disc in and I can see all the file structure on there but I've no idea how to actually *play* the Blu-ray disc using Media Player Classic . With a DVD, I simply run the VIDEO_TS.IFO file with Media Player Classic and it plays the disc as normal. Is there a BluRay equivalent of this?"
