I prefer to use ArcSoft's Theatre 5 for Blu-ray playback in both my office computer and on my HTPC in my living room as it is just easier and faster to get to my movie entertainment. No higher praise can be given other than my choice on a day to day basis for my media player, I highly recommend the ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre 5.

ArcSoft's TMT5 has not only provided a worthy successor to TMT3, but also taken the lead in HTPC Blu-ray playback.
