‘KMPlayer’ is my favorite multimedia player for the Windows platform. It’s completely free, supports playing almost all the popular audio/video codecs and container formats. After they released the version 188.8.131.52 which brought the Blu-ray support, added support for few codecs, have fixed a lot of AVI and few more bug fixes as usual. Hence, many people like to play Blu-ray movies with KMPlayer on computer.
However, not everyone can watch Blu-ray with KMPlayer on computer, troubles will appear from time to time. Some feedback unveiled that when some people were trying to play a Bluray on KMP but the sound was really messed up and the video was running extremely fast.
Simply to solve the problem. First navigate to: ‘[F2] > Video Processing > General (tab)’ & Set ‘KMP Video Transform Filter’ to ‘Always Use’. If that doesn’t fix it, try switching to Gabest MPEG-TS Splitter at ‘[F2] > Filter Control > Splitter > General (tab)’.
Generally, the part can do the trick. But if you have large Blu-ray movies and are always meeting Blu-ray playback issue with KMPlayer on computer. I do suggest you to rip Blu-ray to another file format that KMP supports to enjoy on computer. You can backup Blu-ray to computer hard disc then stream Blu-ray movies with KMP without using Blu-ray discs any more.
To reach the goal, a Blu-ray Ripper <Blu-ray Ripper Software vs. Blu-ray Copy Software> is recommended here – Pavtube ByteCopy. This program can effectively remove all copy & region protection from Blu-ray disc and convert to MKV format for playing on computer with KMplayer.
Besides backing up Blu-ray to MKV format for KMplayer, the program also gives you the chance to adjust video bitrate/frame rate, audio codec,/channel, and adjust display aspect ratio.
