    Vlc will play some encrypted media. I don't use it, the question of it being legal in the U.S. As I said in another post, I recall a court case in U.S. that the judge allowed a person to download the file to play dvds on other operating systems on because it fits the definition of fair use and he already bought the dvd. The copyright office still claims you can't download that file to play the dvd.

    I don't know how Windows VLC decryptions works. VLC for Windows can play encrypted dvds on most windows operating systems provided you have a dvd player.

    Well, VLC is fine for movies and such but again it is not a true library software and is a pain in the a$$ to try and use in a LiveTV environment. I decided to actually install Windows 10 on one of my laptops and try this. It would not install on my Virtual disc version. No Media Center has been a major drawback for our family.

    Windows 10, still doesn't surpass Windows 8 in my eyes.

    Anybody tried it on the current consumer version or are you all running it on the Insider builds? I see the version 10.0.10134.0 in the screen shots but have no idea what that actually means? I'm guessing the MC version not the Windows 10 build number?

    I'm wondering how long that will last before Microsoft kills it? Being as it came from the MDL site.
