Useful tip on how to burn Blu-ray with Windows Media Player 12

Any questions about how to Burn Blu-ray with Windows Media Player 11,12?

"As for the Windows Media Player 12, the program is useless anyway, does not play simple single mpeg video files, let alone Blu-ray discs. The WMP 12 stops responding and freezes forcing you to close the wmp program. I am looking for an effective way to play Blu-ray movies in Windows Media Player. Thank you for any tip!"

The software technology for playing these disks isn't free — just for the right to use the patented technology needed to play DVDs. So what is a movie-loving Windows Media Player 12 user to do? There are basically two options: getting an alternative player to afford Blu-ray discs or finding third party software that can play disks. Let's go over both possibilities.

Source From: Copy Blu-ray movies to Windows Media Player 12 for playing

Option A: Install A Different Media Player

VLC can be considered as a powerful media player to afford DVDs and BDs. However, it could only recognize unencrypted Blu-Ray disk. In a word, the option is fantastic for DVDs, but somewhat lacking for Blu-Ray. Thus, you may need something commercial for the job for playing Blu-ray movies in Windows Media Player 12.

Option B: Get an ideal third party program

Since Windows Media Player can not afford Blu-ray disc directly, then the easiest solution to watch Blu-ray movies on Windows Media Player is to rip Blu-ray disc content into Windows Media Player supported formats like WMV, MP4 .etc. Under this circumstance, a powerful Blu-ray tool-Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper is highly recommended to deal with DVD/BDs to common video formats for playing on Windows Media Player 12. Download the software on your computer and follow the guide below to start conversion.

How to Rip Blu-rays to WMV for Windows Media Player 12

Step One: Insert your Blu-ray into driver, and add your Blu-ray disc via "Load" button to the app. This program also supports DVD discs and DVD/BD folder.



Step Two: From the Format menu, select Windows Media Player friendly format as your output video format. There, you can take WMV as your output video format.



Tip: If you are still not satisfied with the defaulted profile settings, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish.

Step Three: Tap the convert button and start Blu-ray to Windows Media Player conversion.

When the conversion completes, you will be able to get the result video via "Open" button. After that, you can stream or transfer the converted Blu-ray videos to WMP 12 for smooth playback at ease without any problem.

HEVC/H.265 is the successor codec to AVC/H.264, and it’s designed to deliver two key benefits: equivalent quality to H.264 at approximately 50 percent the data rate, and 4K and ultimately 8K video. Unlike H.264, there is no widely available free player for HEVC, let alone uploading H.265 files to YouTube or other websites. This article will discuss how to add H.265 video files to YouTube for sharing.

How to Upload H.265 videos to YouTube

One: Click the "Add" button to import your videos. You can view the H.265 raw video directly in the preview window.



Two: Go to Format bar to select an output format. To share your H.265 videos on YouTube, .mov, .mpeg4, .avi from Common Video are all the proper formats.



Tip: If you want to do some personal adjust on your raw videos, just go to the "Settings" UI to adjust Bit rate , Frame rate or Audio Channels. You can see the whole output file size on the bottom of this button.

Three:Tap the "Convert" button on the main interface and we can easily get the output videos. After the conversion, you can click the "Open" panel to check your converted files.
