TheKazragore: When I try and play a blu ray disc after doing this VLC just crashes =/
Kori h: This is a complete disaster. what a mess ive made of my comp, after several
hrs trying different things with different down loads , what a freaking
TheEliteGuy: i didnt have to do anything..literally downloaded a blu ray movie(bonnie
and clyde 2013 720p) opened it with vlc and it worked
Jonathon Kilchester: I downloaded the 2.1.3 version of VLC 64bit .exe version for my Windows 7
machine, which installed into the Program Files/VideoLan directory (not the
Program FIles(x86) directory as the video says). Then I installed the
KEYDB.cfg as directed. And then installed hte 64bit aacs file into my
Program Files/VideoLan/VLC directory, and it finally worked :)
Daniel T: Blu-Ray error:
This Blu-Ray Disc needs a library for AACS decoding, and your system does
not have it.
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///D:/'. Check the log for details.
coolgaara14: I'm trying to Star Trek Into Darkness but won't work. I have everyting done
correctly but it crashes when I try to play the bluray. The comment
somewhere below said something about the AACS file being outdated and won't
work on newer Bluray movies that came out. So I guess I'll need to buy a
software unless VLC comes out with an updated file.
David Campbell: I tried both methods and they failed. I'm running a 64 bit machine. When I
tried the 32 bit method, I got the "Missing Keys" error and the "Unable to
open the MRL 'bluray'..." error. When I tried the 64 bit method, I just got
the "Unable to open the MRL 'bluray'..." error. It would be great if there
was a solution to this
Edward Fominykh: Thanks, it worked perfectly.
cr0uchingtiger: didn't work
risen from ashes: doesn't work.
Nathan Davidson: worked for me. Did tangled blu-ray. No judging that movie is bad ass
DaytimeSolo: non worked for me
vashnator: this crap doesn't work
Goliatron: Check your audio levels before releasing videos. It's really pretty easy.
Peter Wall: Actually that is the wrong way around. Program files (X86) is the 32 bit
Z Green: not fair dude, linux has hax
smartass23t: Blu-Ray error:
"AACS Host certificate revoked." I used to be able to play certain blurays,
now NONE WORK.
Doug Luehe: Great stuff; definitely appreciate the detailed explanation. Only problem
is that it's not working for me. Tried the uninstall/reinstall (a couple
of times); also tried 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Can't get my Blu-ray
disk to play, or the individual m2ts files.
- When I try the "Open Disk" option I get, "Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///G:/'. Check the log for details."
Can't find find anything useful in the message log.
- When I try the "Open File" option I get not activity or message at all.
Akshay Pradhan: My VLC crashes ... any idea why?
Charles Younkin: Did all the steps still get the same message.
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///D:/'
pk: Thanks, made it clear.
jose s: this method worked for me perfectly, double or triple check where you put
the libaccs,dll file and the key.cfg file, very easily to put them in the
wrong place, this video was the answer to my prayers, i'm using win7 32bit
with vlc player nightly v.2.2.0
Phillip Wister: I am used to drag and drop on dvd and files into vlc,
Had to go on open disc and hcose blueray for start it, but else then what i
am used to not work, this work ^_^ (windows 8.1 pro(64 -bit), asus
external 3.0 usb blueray burner, (had power-dvd iwth it who not work ))
calum unsworth: Worked for me once I had uninstalled and delted everything and started
again from scratch with the 64 bit version. Thanks Michael!
Andrew Harrington: VLC crashes every time I try to open a blu ray. Anyone else get this?
Samuel Coppock: The 64 bit version only worked for me, but great. Thanks
Sonny I: works perfectly with Win 8.1
Kurt Parker: Worked great! Thanks
Ed Doyle: Well, by now you are probably tired of praise, but i can not resist. This
works PERFECTLY!!!. I have a 64 bit Samsung ATIV Book 8 running Windows
8.1 and Ubuntu 13.10. After following your procedures, VLC plays AACS
Blu-ray disks PERFECTLY. (Well, OK, the menus do not work, but I can get
to any title or chapter from the Playback menu). I am running the 64 bit
version of VLC 2.1.0. Great Job.
bludhund: This solution worked for me, running Win7 64bit and a Samsung player.
HOWEVER I continually got the "VLC is unable to open the MRL
'bluray:///D:/'." error until I MANUALLY SELECTED the title from playback
drop-down (example, titles 1, 2, 3 were previews, title 0 was the movie).
I dunno, or maybe it just magically worked on like the 12th try? Anyhoo,
I;m going to watch my freaking Fifth Element movie now, thanks so much for
the annoyance Sony.
Antony Phoenix: You Sir are a star ,been trying for ages to sort it out,did it in 5 mins
following your guide.Windows 7 64bit. Thank you.
Thomas Hutchinson: I had the ""VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///E:/'. " problem and for
me, it was just that vlc tried to open the disk as a dvd. If I manually
opened from vlc itself and chose dvd, it works fine. Top menu > Media >
Disc > Blu-ray button, check the right device, play.
Chris Canela: Blu-Ray error:
AACS Host certificate revoked.
chirag mehta: thank you your instructions helped and worked in first trial. Only thing I
had to do was restart the pc, make sure to select blu-ray and then it
played beautifully. Thank you for your help
Joseph Sicilia: I just want to watch the big lebowski! Effing computers!
Kevin Swartz: Wow, it just works, thanks! [using VLC 64 bit 2.1.0 version and Windows 7
64 bit SP 1]
Dune3D: Finally! I got it working! Been using 32-bit VLC on Win7 64-bit so I
uninstalled and started from scratch - yes, this includes deleting the
VideoLAN folder (or folders if u have more than one). Downloaded the 64-bit
and installed in Program Files and not in Program Files (x86). Instructions
on KEYDB.cfg is the same. Download and install correct libaacs.dll (in my
case, 64-bit) in the VLC folder. That's it. No restart necessary. Using an
OEM LG BDR (WH14NS40). Also applied firmware (download from LG).
suelg24: Thanks a billion!!!! I would not have figured this out. Really appreciate
Guy Ward: Most may already know this. This software works fine. But it has a problem.
The problem I believe is linked to an out of date AACS file. It has nothing
to do with the sofeware not working properly but with the validation of the
Blue Ray discs. It works on older any region Blue Rays upto the last up
date of the AACS file. Any new Blue Rays after the last update may not work
due to an invalid key. Prometheus, Hobbit will not work because of this.
However MIB, Spiderman work fine.It is all to do with liecensing and I
suspect to watch the current blue rays we will need a piece of software
which has a current up to date liecense "keys". I believe, but could be
wrong, without a key in the software which matches the disc it is the
hardware in the form of the drive itself that rejects the disc. So if this
piece of software we are using has not been updated for a year or so then
that is going to eleiminate a lot of movies.

Victor Le: would this work if you do not have a blu ray disc player?
skizm887: I followed these instructions and I'm getting this message: "This Blu-ray
Disc needs a library for AACS decoding, and your system does not have it".
What did I do wrong?
Darrin Giggy: TRY THIS IF ERROR AFTER FOLLOWING VIDEO:
-Look up a free software called PassKeylite (It's the free version and it's
all you need). Install it and be patient, it may actually take a few
minutes and appear non-responsive (took my decent pc about 5 min). Then
you will have to restart.
-With your BluRay disc in the drive (EvilDead2013 was mine) run the
-A small info bubble might pop up saying you will have trouble playing the
back up disc on some devices. For me it was the DRM Cinavia that it found
Re-launch VLC and try Open Disc>BluRay->Open.
For me this was what finally made it all work. I'm using a
cheap lg-WH14NS40 OEM from newegg.com
Assuming you downloaded the correct files for your version of VLC and
placed them in the right locations it might work for you. Hopefully this
helps someone else.
Anthony Jeffers: I tried both 32 bit & 64 bit and went step by step from this tutorial and I
still get the same message. What's the point of having a blu-ray burner if
you can't even play one?
Matthew Plemmons: FYI...Worked for me on older Blu-ray(1st Hangover), but tried it on a
new release(internship) and it does not work. Reloaded everything and
still didn't work, popped back in Hangover and worked again. Something with
newer discs, like how you have to update your Blu-ray player to play new
discs I would bet.
cmath311: So I still get the error "Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///D:/'. Check the log for details."
Where is the log? Does this same "How To" work for the last 2.1.2 version?
Steven Chapman: This worked, thanks.
diaboyos: Thx brother.
ascelot: Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///D:/#1'. Check the log for details.
Keep getting this.
Brandon Irving: The instructions were straight forward. Thank you so much.Great video!
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
