So I want to get a media player/burner software for christmas but I don't know what to ask for. I mainly want a good one because I have a blu-ray burner/player that I haven't been able to use because it came only with trial software and now is unable to burn/play blu-rays any more unless I buy the software.

So, I need the media player to be able to play blu-rays and burn blu-ray discs as well. Any thoughts? I hear Nero is good but which one?

Thanks!
 
I own Nero HD , Power DVD Ultra , and WinDVD Pro all which play blu-rays:

1-Nero HD
2-Corel WinDVD Pro
3-PowerDVD Ultra

Here is how i rank them in performance for blu-ray playback ^

Imgburn is #1 nothing compares for burning your media

Those are free I see. Do you lose anything with those compared to using something like Nero?

I was looking at Nero Platinum 11:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832111028

How does that compare? What would I be losing if I got just normal Nero HD?

Thanks!

I prefer to use specific tools for different tasks. I am not a big fan of all-in-ones.

U may end up paying for something, that u will not need. So post more info n what do u are going to do with BD disc.

I agree with Area51reopened ^^^, and if u are not sure, u can always try the Nero suite, before the purchase riccardi50 : )

I used Nero for burning only in the distant past, had no issues with it.

It was OEM licence, that came with the DVD drive.

What's the difference between Nero 11 Platinum and their suite?

I like the idea of the platinum because it has a blu-ray media player as well as I can edit video that I have recorded in a lot of different formats. It just seemed like a good all around media player/editing tool.

Your thoughts?
