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




What do you think about this video?

brown55061: Yeah this didn't work for me on Win7 64-bit, having the 32-bit VLC player installed. I did everything correctly. When trying to play a bluray disk it says AACS library is not there.

Tonmoy Kabiraj: Thank you so much for the instruction; it was really helpful!! 

TheKazragore: When I try and play a blu ray disc after doing this VLC just crashes =/

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

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 mess.

Prince Vegeta: "No valid processing key found in AACS config file" .. lol

Aaron Arnold: sort yourself out you prewn!

George Garcia: it sort of worked for me. but the sound didnt sync correctly. why the f@#k do they put blu ray players on laptops if there were not going to work properly.

Aaron Shimon: This honestly isn't worth the effort. Just purchase a BD player. It's easier and fully supports all audio and special features.

Zach Walker: Thank you so much, you are awesome, took me a few hours but I got it .=)

Jon Brown: i hate you 

Nathan Davidson: worked for me. Did tangled blu-ray. No judging that movie is bad ass

fragilenin: it works for me. download the latest windows 64 bit version. create the aacs folder in apps data then roaming then copy key file there. then copy .dll file to the programs (not programs x86) vlc folder. works perfectly. finally

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 The comment somewhere below said something about the AACS file being outdated and won't work on newer Bluray movies that came out.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.

DaytimeSolo: non worked for me

vashnator: this crap doesn't work

Goliatron: Check your audio levels before releasing videos. It's really pretty easy.

cr0uchingtiger: didn't work

Peter Wall: Actually that is the wrong way around. Program files (X86) is the 32 bit programs

Z Green: not fair dude, linux has hax

palo gazo: Yes Great info and instruction ...will only works for smart folk...LOL Thanks.

smartass23t: Blu-Ray error: "AACS Host certificate revoked." I used to be able to play certain blurays, now NONE WORK. 

Edward Fominykh: Thanks, it worked perfectly.

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 ))

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 :)

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

Dustin Collins: Thank you so much!! Worked perfectly!

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

risen from ashes: doesn't work.

Akshay Pradhan: My VLC crashes ... any idea why?

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.

Kurt Parker: Worked great! Thanks

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. 

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]

pk: Thanks, made it clear.

suelg24: Thanks a billion!!!! I would not have figured this out. Really appreciate your time

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.

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).

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. Any pointers? Thanks!

calum unsworth: Worked for me once I had uninstalled and delted everything and started again from scratch with the 64 bit version. Thanks Michael!

Victor Le: would this work if you do not have a blu ray disc player?

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 PassKeyLite http://www.dvdfab.com/passkey-lite.htm -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.

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. 

Steven Chapman: This worked, thanks.

diaboyos: Thx brother.
