How to Play Blu-ray/DVD on Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+?

The good news is that here we find an useful way to assist you to easily address this head-scratching issue.

Can You Play Blu-ray/DVD Disc on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+

As we mentioned above, both Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 + lacks the optical drive to read BD/DVD disc, it means that you can't insert a Blu-ray/DVD disc into it. In addition, if your Blu-ray/DVD movies are commercial ones with copy & region code protection, you will need to break the encryption before copying them to computer hard drive.

In fact, you are fortunately enough to download many free BD/DVD disc rippers, such as Handbrake, MakeMKV, Format Factory, VidCoder, MediaCoder, etc. But these freewares won't be able to bypass the most recent BD/DVD encryption and copy your favorite movies to Samsung Galaxy S9 (Plus) for watching when you are out for travelling. So a professional Blu-ray/DVD copy software is in need.
