For me he is a very good player. It is the only player with Power DVD that loads blu ray disc menus. I have version 7 Ultra HD. With Power DVD I often have problems with the audio, maybe I don't have the right codecs, but with Player Fab I have no problem.

Beware!!!Beware!!!! DVDFab Media Player, is the biggest official spyware I have come across. Before thinking even of installing it on your System, read their Privacy Policy. They tell you that they will spy on everything you have on your Pc and sell your Data and that they will indict you by law, if they feel like it. The program as soon as you install it, will take control of all the NTUSER.DAT files in all your C:\Users\ Folders. You cleaning programs will find it present still, even when you have uninstalled it. You have to go after and delete remaining folders and 10+ regedit entries, to get rid of it from your Pc. If you subscribe to their platform, there is no way of deleting your account. In their Privacy Policy, they say they will spy on you and sell your Data, even when you just visit their site. In their Forum, they will lock the questions you have, if they feel their scam is being exposed and they will never answer your requests. Users stay away from DVDFAB Media Player, for your sake. Thank you.

This is more like a bad Beta software than a finished product! Bugs & glitches run rampant through this program. Many discs don't load properly. Rendering is often very poor with lines through the picture at motion points. Even simple features like subtitles don't work correctly. No matter what the setting, the subtitles are always on. They're supposedly aware of this problem, but haven't been able to fix it for 8 updates now! Every new release of this software brings more problems instead of fixes. Save your money & buy some software that actually works!

I'm probably one of the few people who still enjoys watching 3D movies.
I've been keeping my eye on this software since v1. I'm in Australia, so prices are extremely expensive. It's $89 US for a player that really doesn't offering anything compelling over free players such as PotPlayer to justify that price. But here, that price is over $170. That's just insane.

The 3D functionality just doesn't work properly on either Passive or Active 3D TV's. There is a HDMI setting which has been "in development" for what seems an eternity, and the rest either result in massive ghosting and focus issues, or an image that looks like i's raining over the top of the picture. And we're talking PCs with GTX 1080 GPUs, 8700K/9700K CPUs and 16GB 3200mhz RAM.

I had many issues with the trial. I could use it once and then it would complain it had expired. In the end I had to re-install Windows so that I could install a fresh copy and get one more try. It's just not worth the hassle. Especially at such a massive price.

And my rating is probably overly generous.

Have to say that this has just been a major pain in the rear. I had v. installed, and probably should have left it alone, settling for "not very good." (At least it started.) Could not configure it: it always opened defaulted to full-screen and loading the same old previously downloaded clips, rather than asking WHAT to load, or just starting blank where you could go to an 'Open File' menu selection -- as nearly all other players do. But I made the mistake of uninstalling it with Revo (possibly doing some minor Registry damage in the process ?), so that I could replace it with v. The result was failed installs, inability to start the later version, and the error "The program can't start because VCOMP120.DLL is missing from your computer." Well, it ain't missing; it is there !! I then followed by chasing down purported remedies posted online, including the latest MS Visual C++ Redistributable x64 package, which then led to other errors like " . . . the entry-point DLLRegisterServer was not found . . . " In a word, exasperating ! Because they appear to have built this thing out of some troublesome, proprietary crapware that none of the other established desktop video players seem to rely upon. At this point, I give up: I think I'm gonna just chuck this hot mess out the window.

Truth be told, I'm not at all convinced that we really need another player. Between VLC, MPC-BE, SMPlayer, and Daum Potplayer, I think we probably have all of the contingencies pretty well covered. At least the first three of those also have portable versions, and most importantly: TREY SIMPLY WORK !

Seems to support blu-ray menus well. Bluray with menus from folders is the only reason to buy this. Other free software has all of the other playback features included here. If you have ripped to iso try using one of the other freeware bluray players that support menus first. It's not really worth the money for just one feature. I would wait for a sale at the minimum.

The player is starting to get better but some issues are still present the following
- Totally not worth the value yet. I would pay $30.00 CDN not $50.00 U.S.A!
- Will not play Full Disc Blu-Ray ISO that have been converted with ImageBurn
- Dislike the "Recent Play List"
- Some movies still cause buffer rendering when playing from LAN server
- Audible tone still being emitted when playing movies (data tone pickup)

As a proof of concept, they have shown that they are on the right track.
Unfortunately, the program is too buggy to be considered beta software. Alpha at best.
I will say that I'm anxious for a stable release down the road!

I did a fair amount of testing with this player when it was first released. The action sequence I selected in Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Pt.2 turned into a slideshow. TMT3 played the same clip quite well.

It caused a BSOD when I tried play Dark Knight Blu-ray. It works fine in PowerDVD and TMT...
