How To Enable VLC To Play Blu-ray Movies In Windows (VLC 2.0.2+)




What do you think about this video?

DS Michael: +Tim Bruijninckx to Tim Bruijninckx. I actually corrected this in an annotation. I thought I made it clear that I was going by VLC's bit version and not the os. Unfortunately, people didn't get that, and I have to blame myself for thinking it was going to work as it made it more confusing. As I said before, I'm working on a remake that will only focus on the 32 bit version of VLC program since it's the most downloaded at the site. The 64 bit VLC version will be it's own video because of this confusion. The reason for this confusion is because the site where you get the files, only concentrate on the program bit version and not the OS bit version. I thought it would be better if I focused the programs bit version instead of OS as I thought it would make it clearer for people because of those files. I apologize for this and, Like my more recent videos I've been putting out, I promise that I'll be more careful with the remake and make sure that it's easy and simple as possible. 

anikanbounty97: need help got this error trying to play how to train your dragon 2 blue ray version with the special features on it one with my new blue ray portable drive VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///E:/'. Check the log for details.

Blake Glover: I had a problem getting the 64bit version of 2.1.5 to work following this. The mistake was that with the 64 bit version you need to put the 'libaacs.dll' file within the 'Local Disc (C:)/ Program Files/ VideoLAN / VLC' directory and not within the 'Program Files (x86)' directory. Try this and it will work :)

TheLoc02: Tried this, the error I get is: Blu-ray error: No valid processing key found in AACS config file. Even though the KEYDB.cfg file is in my aacs file in appdata Note: After copying the KEYDB file, and then trying to start a blu ray movie, two other files are seen after checking the aacs file: drl and hrl I have 32bit vlc ver. 2.1.5 on 64bit windows 7 I have the blu ray disk and after opening the files on the disk itself it has the AACS folder on the blur ray disk already, just not with the same contents as described here. Wondering if the the AACS folder ont he disk needs to be moved to the appdata folder...

unnamednewbie13: Not working in 2.1.5.

anikanbounty97: what about portable version?

Oliver Bishop: i keep getting the cant open up the MRL Blueray message

ΓΙΑΝΝΗΣ ΔΗΜΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ: Michael....You know there are NO some windows users....BUT entires countries like Greece whos use windows...We dont use MAC like USA...Believe that the highest percentage in Europe use Windows... INSTEAD MAC..... I believe that 80% of the users in europe are using windows.....WHY? The only reason most is the price that costs a MAC

Kagek1: This works well with the 64 bit 2.1.5 version. The only correction I have is that you will need the put the 64 libaacs.dll file into the Program Files folder (NOT the Program Files (x86) folder! This does not work for 32 bit 2.1.5!

Gatekeeper - a meeting of giants: Brilliantly explained! Thanks! :)))))

Jake Walthamstow: if you are running windows 8 and 64 bit and it still doesn't work try the experimental 64bit and check the menus box it now works for me...::: Thanks to post and vid: some user that helped me - "I finally got it to work! Like a lot of people here, I followed all the instructions to the letter, but nothing was working. I am on Windows 7 64-bit. I realized after that one person's post that I had installed the 32-bit version of VLC, since it was in the Program Files (x86) directory, so I downloaded the 32-bit dll to try again, but with no luck. So then I went to the VLC site and downloaded the experiment 64-bit version of VLC (you have to do a little searching), and it installed to the Program Files directory. I downloaded the 64-bit dll and put it in the Program Files/VideoLan/VLC folder, launched vlc from that folder, opened the blu-ray with the "blu ray" option, checked the "No Titles" box, and it worked! I hope this helps someone else. Bottom line: Try the 64-bit version of VLC with the correct dll."

Oscar Rivera: At 3:01 the explanation is backward. 32-bit VLC is installed in Program Files (x86) and 64-bit VLC is installed in Program Files contrary to what the video says.

ΓΙΑΝΝΗΣ ΔΗΜΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ: I make everything that you tell but unfortunually not working....show this: Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///F:\'. Check the log for details. Thanks you anyway!!!

kipolpo: This works with the 64 bit version 2.1.5 of VLC as of 30/12/2014 using the exact instructions provided on the video. Thanks

Darth Hodor: Thanks a lot. Worked perfectly. Have a nice day.

Richard Rawlings: running windows 8.1 64 bit system with vlc 2.1.5 64 bit and every time I try it after following the instructions I keep getting "Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///F:/'. Check the log for details." Is there a way to solve this problem?

fzumrk2000: Thanks for the video. Your instructions worked for me. I successfully installed the 32 bit version of VLC player on a Windows 8.1 64 bit OS and was able to get blu-rays to play. As a side note, it is complete bull---- that you can't play a blu-ray on your PC without jumping through hoops like these.

Eric Poirier: Got win 8.1, did all it is said in video...and still does not work :-( deleted everything redid all the steps.... still does not work.... :-( Help please!

sonofanutjob .: I followed these instructions exactly for both the x86 and x64 versions, but to no avail. My drive is a Panasonic UJ240 and the Blu-Ray I'm trying to load is the movie Frozen.

Dale Rice: This isn't working with version 2.1.5 either. I tried with both 32 and 64 bit, fresh install on both.

Kee Leicthle: what do you mean by go to the device or folder the blu ray disc is currently stored?

TheSyrus54: Not working in 2.1.5.... Does not work with 2.0.2 Either ! ! ! (Win7, x64)

BIOSHOCKFOXX: I have the problem, that I have bunch of files and folders, and no normal video file, does this tutorial cover it ? Cause when I open my movie, it has two folders - CERTIFICATE and BDMV. the first one has one file id.bdmv and another folder that holds another file and folder, the second folder has more folders with some few files. WTF is this crap ? Does this video covers this thing or is it some sort of different blu ray enabler ?

Tim Bruijninckx: Actually, Program Files (x86) is the 32 bit version. Program Files is the 64 bit version. Can't blame a Ubuntu user for being wrong...

GHGripElectric: is this compatible with Version 2.1.5? i had it working just fine and i let auto update do its thing with out thinking. Now it doesn't work. i even rolled back to an older version of VLC and i cant get playback anymore also im on windows 8.1 64bit it worked before i accidently clicked Update and i dont understand why downloading older versions didnt fix the problem i just get this Blu-Ray error: AACS Host certificate revoked. Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///E:/'. Check the log for details.

Jeff Olson: So, you said 32 bit is in Programs and 64 bit is in Programs x86? I'm on Windows 7 HP 64 bit, and the 32 bit VLC I got years ago was in x86, and the experimental 64 bit version you mentioned here downloaded to regular Programs. May want to update for newer VLC versions even for minute details, had a few minute brain fart re-watching the vid to double check everything.

Naveen Boda: nt working fr 32 bit 2.0.2+

RaidenMGS Vang: I was able to download the AACS dynamic library for a 64-bit on Windows 8. My problem was when I click on "get the file" for the keys database, all it did was lead me to a bunch of processing keys. What can I do to overcome this and be able to download the keys database because the video does not specifically present that part?

wbutlers: hope this works in Vista, too

lester vogt: Thanks a lot,downloaded 2.1.5 x64,installed,followed directions,works just fine on my PC.I made sure I deleted VLC 32 bit version before I did this.I don't have to shell out money for blu-ray software ! GREAT JOB

Tom Johnson: This was so useful! After fighting to get a non-cooperative PS3 to display video on my TV and having both Windows Media Player and VLC not run the disc, it's so great to have it work! Thanks for the upload, really useful and really clear. 

Max Wilson: I have VLC 2.1.5 and followed your steps to the letter and get the errors: Blu-ray error: No valid processing key found in AACS config file. Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///F:/'. Check the log for details.

Christopher Wright: THANKYOU !!

Gnerg91: If you're sick and tired (like I got eventually) of trying to make free versions work, I'll recommend aurora player. The trial player is just bullcrap though, displaying a trial message on top your video. Full 2013 version is available at the link provided. You shouldn't trust people on the internet, but for what it's worth I can vouch for it to be safe xP http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/9247847/Aurora_Blu-ray_Media_Player_2.13.2.1421_Multilingual_With_Crack[ 

Bones98: some blu rays work and some don't. Oh well...

Adam Mak: Thx for help. Follow all the step and correct install 32bit or 64bit folder will work. It work in 2.1.5

David Johnston: Thank you very much DS Michael. I was having trouble getting it sorted on my x64bit OS, no longer. :)

Zuflus Frozenhearth: Two words: thank you. and thanks to that guy making that site with the download.

Zach Whitmire: Thank you good sir

x TheDestiinyx: when i want to watch it can i also do it with a dvd player or is this just to enable the fuktion that the blu ray player can read it ???

The Fat Man: Doesn't work with VLC 2.1.5 Even tried using 2.0.2 like in the video. I tried this several times before getting so pissed off I yanked the tray out of my bluray drive =\ I'm going back to DVDs. Less bullcrap.

Jan Bender: thanks a lot

Frank Wire: MRL 'bluray:///E:/'. Check the log for details Followed the instructions for 64 bit windows 7 - did not work. Where is the darn log mentioned? Its not in the VLC directory, unless its got a different name/extension. 

NotSoCheezyAnimation: It works! Sort of. Some discs don't play and all discs that do are kind of washed out, but it's better than nothing!

SMASHINGmedia: Hm, not working for me either. 

MJMyrna: I've got 64-bit Windows 7 with 32-bit VLC, v. 2.0.8 and it doesn't work for me.

Jesse1MI: Thanks for this, working great on v.2.02 64 bit Windows!

deadelf196: Hey so i tried this on both ubuntu and windows 7, using both the 2.1.4 and then trying the backdated 2.0.2 doing the same steps each, both times i get the error : Blu-Ray error: Your system AACS decoding library does not work. Missing keys? Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///H:/'. Check the log for details. and in linux or using 2.1.4 i get a similar error(does not show the blu-ray error) any info to shed some light on whats going on?

viperswhip: Who installs things in the recommended folders? Lol, you probably shouldn't since your new computer is likely running on an SSD, while VLC hardly needs that, and ya, it's small, but all programs that don't need that should go on a HD that's likely not your system drive. This doesn't work for me anyway. If it's because I didn't install VLC (yes, for win 64) in the default location, then as much as I have loved VLC in the past, we will now break up.

WHITEN3RDGAMING: i keep getting this please help Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///D:/'. Check the log for details.
