All features


In-time decryption to newly released movies
Your current media player does not play the movie released last week? Don't worry, DVDFab Media Player can do this. As soon as you insert the protected disc into optical drive, DVDFab Media Player will access it and then connect its server to break the protection code in less than a minute, be it AACS or the latest BD+. Keep in mind, to achieve this, you have to allow the software player to access the internet.

1080p HD video and HD Master Audio make each penny of your dime count
As known, one of the reasons why Blu-ray survives the media format war is that it delivers delicate 1080p video. Apart from this, the DTS HD Master Audio or Dolby True HD Audio coming along with Blu-ray discs also rocks. With this media player, you lose nothing.

Free play of Blu-ray & DVD ISO files,folders and other video files forever
DVDFab Media Player is a freeware, on the premise that you use it only for playing Blu-ray & DVD ISO files, folders and other video files from your local hard disc drive. A registration code is required after 30 days if you have the need to play a real disc, be it a Blu-ray or DVD.

Automatic information collection and smart recognition
DVDFab Media Player can smartly tell the movie folder you are loading is a DVD folder or Blu-ray one. In addition, it also has the capability to collect the movie info's available from internet, like title name, release date, rating category, director, actor & actress information, poster etc. So, you may get something you are interested.

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.


Review by Yanta on Jul 6, 2019 Version: 5.0.2.8 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 2/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 2/10




And my rating is probably overly generous.

Have to say that this has just been a major pain in the rear. I had v. 5.0.1.9 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. 5.0.2.7. 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 !


Review by Seeker47 on Jul 6, 2019 Version: 5.0.2.7 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value for money: 4/10 Overall: 3/10




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.

Review by loster on Aug 28, 2016 Version: 3.0.0.1 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 6/10 Overall: 8/10




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)


Review by dvdsham on Mar 26, 2013 Version: 1.0.3.5 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value for money: 2/10 Overall: 6/10




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!
