QUESTION ABOUT PLAYING BLU-RAY DISC ON WIN 10
Posted by: THE DON ()
Date: June 24, 2018 02:57

I recntly got a new computer Windows 10 with Blu-ray drive and to my surprise it won't play my Blu-ray disc.

Is there something I should be doing?

Also when you open a Blu-ray disc which is the file/folder that contains the video? For example in DVD it's the VOB file.

Thanks in advance for any help.

There are two 'main folders' usually CERTIFICATE and BDMV
The BDMV folder has a sub folder called STREAM, the video you seek is in it

You're looking for the BIG file named 0000.MT2S

Thanks Midimannz, much appreciated.

However do you know of a program that will allow me to watch commercial Blu-ray discs I bought? It's weird that you buy a new Win 10 with Blu-ray drive and it won't play with latest versions of VLC, Media Player Classic Home Cinema and Windows Media Player.

a good (and free) Software to play all Blu-Rays is:

Leawo Blu-Ray Player

The short answer is MakeMKV and a license key or a free beta license key.

And then you should be able to get them (the commercial Blu-ray Discs) to work with media player softwares such as VLC , Media Player Classic , and MPV Media Player etc. .

This is a tutorial for RedCore Linux .... not Windows BUT,you should be able to apply some of the information (such as where to get a license key for commercial Blu-ray playback) to Windows if that is what you're going to stick with.

Here's the tutorial :

Playing Blu-ray
----------------------------
Introduction :

The purpose of this article is to explain how to play Blu-rays under Argent Linux. Since (nearly all) Blu-rays are encrypted and copy-protected, some steps are necessary to allow playing the content with a media player like Package:Mpv or media-video/vlc (package not on wiki - please add).

** Warning :

Playing Blu-ray involves circumventing the copy protection and encryption of the discs. In some areas of the world, this may be illegal. **

To be able to play Blu-ray disks using mpv (or any other player), it is necessary to circumvent the encryption scheme of the disk. At the moment, there are two possible ways to do this:
Possibilites

At the moment, there are two possible ways to decrypt and play a Blu-ray:
Method Description
libaacs & libbdplus GPL'd software, does not work with recent disks.
makemkv Proprietary software, works with all disks.

If you don't want to use proprietary software, using media-libs/libaacs (package not on wiki - please add) and media-libs/libbdplus (package not on wiki - please add) will be the solution of your choice. If you however have very recent Blu-ray disks or don't mind installing a proprietary application, consider using media-video/makemkv (package not on wiki - please add). This article will explain both ways.
Playing Blu-ray disks using makemkv

This section explains how to play Blu-rays using the proprietary software media-video/makemkv (package not on wiki - please add). makemkv has been originally designed to copy Blu-rays to mkv files, but using the shipped libraries it is also possible to play disks on-the-fly.
Installation

First, emerge Package:Mpv or media-video/vlc (package not on wiki - please add) with the bluray useflag. Then, install makemkv:

# emerge media-video/makemkv

License key

***** Using MakeMKV requires a license key which you may get either by purchasing the software or by using a free beta key, which is available at the MakeMKV Forums. *********

Copy the key and insert it into your settings.conf:
~/.MakeMKV/settings.conf

app_Key = "Your Key here"

Using MakeMKV

To make sure that your player uses the libraries shipped with makemkv, the following environment variables need to be set:
- Environment variables

LIBAACS_PATH=libmmbd
LIBBDPLUS_PATH=libmmbd

So, assuming that your Blu-ray is mounted at /media/bluray, you can play it like this:

# LIBAACS_PATH=libmmbd LIBBDPLUS_PATH=libmmbd mpv bluray:////media/bluray

If you want to use vlc, run it like this:

# LIBAACS_PATH=libmmbd LIBBDPLUS_PATH=libmmbd vlc

Then use the play disc menu entry.
Playing Blu-ray disks using only free software

This section explains how to play Blu-rays using media-libs/libaacs (package not on wiki - please add) and media-libs/libbdplus (package not on wiki - please add).

First, emerge Package:Mpv or media-video/vlc (package not on wiki - please add) with the bluray useflag.

Then, make sure that both libraries are installed:

# emerge media-libs/libaacs media-libs/libbdplus

As the next step, you will need to store a file called KEYDB.cfg into the following folder: ~/.config/aacs This file contains keys which have been extracted from hardware players. Such a key is needed to decrypt Blu-rays. At the time of this writing, in can be downloaded at [1]. Note that recently no new keys have been extracted, therefore very new Blu-rays cannot be played using this method.

After this step, you should be able to play the Blu-ray if and only if it can be decrypted. For VLC, chose the play disc option from the menu. For mpv, assuming that your blu-ray drive is located at /dev/sr0:

# mount /dev/sr0 /media/bluray
# mpv bluray:////media/bluray

.
