Have tried unsuccessfully to install an app to play blu-ray discs. If someone has had success getting their laptop to play blu-ray on windows 10 please specify which ones are useable. greatly appreciated

I would absolutely NOT download the Super Media Player from the Microsoft store. Reason? The author ripped off Video Lan Client (VLC) for their own gain.

Super Media Player - Plays all the same formats as VLC. What a coincidence. In-app purchases? No thanks.
Disappointing that Microsoft doesn't do a better job of screening apps in its store, but then neither do any of other platforms (Android,IOS,Chrome).

VLC is free and open source. Has been for many many years, and a trusted source. Highly recommended. If VLC can't play it, it's not a proper video source.

AFAIK....playing a BlueRay DVD requires a BlueRay optical drive.

If you have a regular external DVD player connected to your TV and put in a blueray disc your playback resolution is going to be that of a built in rez of standard DVD player. It will not play it at 720/1080. That rez is part of the BlueRay player.

If the PC in question doesn't have a BlueRay optical drive....it will play the disk, just not at 720/1080. Downloading any kind software will not make it do so.
