Free 4K Blu-ray Player by 7thShare is an officially licensed Blu-ray player for Windows.

If you want to play Blu-ray discs, including 4K Blu-ray, on your computer, then Free 4K Blu-ray Player is an excellent option. Perhaps you are opting for an HTPC over a standalone Blu-ray player or want to watch movies on your laptop while your travel. This software will do the trick.

Free 4K Blu-ray Player is officially licensed, which means that it can play Blu-ray discs from around the world regardless of region and properly supports digital rights management. How is this possible in freeware software? Well, 7thShare also makes 4K Blu-ray Player, which is not free but is reasonably free. We presume that they offer this for free in the hopes that you will love its software and want to upgrade to the paid version with supports 3D Blu-ray, DTS 5.1 surround sound and much more.

Even if you choose not to upgrade, you are not missing out on that much. This is a powerful software Blu-ray player even in the free configuration that can play Blu-ray files as well as discs. It can also play DVDs as well as VOB files and CD-based media, such as SVCD and VCD. You can even have it play an ISO file without needing to mount the image and it handles MKV and the like. It also plays audio files, and that makes it a robust media player and much more than just a software Blu-ray player.

Note that performance will vary depending on your system. This is not a con so much with the software as a fundamental limitation of a software Blu-ray player. It relies on your CPU as well as your GPU if you have a dedicated video card. Most modern systems will run this software player without issue. If your computer is an older machine, than it may struggle with decoding of 4K video.
