1. Many (most?) portable Blu-Ray players have headphone jacks built in. Oh, someone else said that already.
If you are playing the signal through your TV, many have headphone jacks too. This is a big advantage, because you can do it while watching TV too.

all blu-Ray players also play DVDs, so they are DVD players. Mine does - it was a bottom of the barrel model from Best Buy, on sale. With an added feature, that lets them play Blu-Ray disks too.
Maybe the o.p. could go to a Salvation Army (early, so they are well stocked), and get an older DVD player that has analog outputs... I just searched at ebay.com, for
blu ray rca
and found a bunch there too.
I think some of the new Blu-Ray players at Best Buy have them too - they are listed as something like "coaxial audio outputs" (but not coaxial digital audio outputs), under the Specifications tab bar. Though I would personally go to the manufacturer sites, and find the user's manual, and LOOK at the picture of the back of the player to make sure. (Oddly enough, none of the 4K players seem to have analog audio output - maybe they think people who are that upscale don't believe in analog?)

Can you be specific about exactly what stopped working, and how? Also do you remember what you changed on the PC before it stopped working? For example, did you update drive firmware? When you aren't doing anything, and run Task Manager (show processes from all users!), what % of time is in the System Idle Process - it should be at least 97% or 98%. If not, you've got other tasks or start-up programs monopolizing your system.
Does the drive still work as a data DVD drive on your PC?
I've played blu-ray disks on my PC, no problems. Though mine is a desktop, and NOT external. External anything on PCs is asking for trouble - USB is pretty unreliable.
I've also played Blu-Ray disks on that bottom of the line Blu-Ray player into my TV, headphones plugged in to TV, no problems.
Oh, wait... Does "Leawo" mean you are trying to copy copyrighted Blu-Ray disks? Some of your software (e.g., Windows) may have updated, and disabled copying. E.g., Microsoft software licenses give them the right to do that. I can't help you.
