Why do I select the Pro version over the Free version?
The answer to this question is slightly different on Windows and Mac platfrom.
If you are using the Windows OS: The Free version will satisfy you if you do not need to playback DVD&Blu-ray discs, or do not need the Blu-ray menu support;

What's the difference between the App Store version and the regular Free version on your website?

Due to the strict rules and regulations Apple App Store puts on the developers, the App Store version is a limited function version, but we will try our best to make that difference the smallest.
