A Blu-ray folder usually contains 2 separate folders: BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders. The BDMV folder under root directory of a Blu-ray contains information about the contents of the Blu-ray disc. If you want to play BDMV folders on PC, you should keep a few things in mind to avoid any problem in playing them.
First, BDMV folder is not the Blu-ray first-level directory, that is to say, if you want to play a Blu-ray movie on PC like on an electronic Blu-ray player, you will need to select the Blu-ray folder as a whole, instead of any stream file.
Second, Blu-ray is a patented technology with copyrighted protection, so is a BDMV folder. You will need authorized media player with appropriate license to play this format. Most regular media players are not capable to play such high quality videos and formats with layers of Blu-ray protection.

Three Best Ways to Play BDMV Folder On PC
Option 1 Drag the whole Blu-ray first-level folder to Blu-ray player software interface or screen. Then you will see the navigation panel. You can click play movie option to play the movie directly, or select a chapter or title to play.
Option 2 Open Blu-ray Folder directly.
If you want to play a Blu-ray folder movie, please pay attention to not selecting any BDMV OR stream file. Or you will just get a video with one audio without Blu-ray navigation panel and subtitle. Blu-ray Player software can help user play a Blu-ray folder as a disc file.
Open iDeer Blu-ray Player and select Open Disc or press Ctrl + D.
When Open Disc box pops up, select Open Folder and choose the Blu-ray first-level directory instead of BDMV or CERTIFICATE.
Then you will see the navigation panel. You can click play movie option to play the movie directly, or select a chapter or title to play.
Option 3 Play one m2ts file instead of the BDMV folder.
If you don’t have Blu-ray player software, and just want to see the video, you can use regular media player to play a m2ts file. Open BDMV/STREAM, you can see lots of m2ts files. Some players will need an appropriate codec, component or plugin installed.
There are too many m2ts files in a Blu-ray folder. It will not be easy to select a proper file. We suggest you play Blu-ray folders with Blu-ray Player software. If you want to play BDMV folder on Mac, please refer to: How to Play BDMV Folder on Mac.
