Blu-Ray Software Problems - Page 2

Okay so I tried VLC and open disc, and got this error;

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.


Any of you know what this means?

Pretty sure it's because the bluray is encrypted. All blurays (besides home made ones) are. I didn't think of that. Follow these directions. See if that works:

If that doesn't work, try K-Lite Codec Pack and Media Player Classic. I think I heard that combo might also be able to run blurays.

Yeah I've tried both of those things. Neither of them have worked.

The fix for the VLC doesn't work because the Keys database doesn't have enough of the information or so I've read about it.


And as for the K-lite, I've already tried that as well to no avail. Comes up with cannot render file. I really want this to work already.

Also just figured out that I can't use my mic yet either, can't figure out how to fix that, but I don't think this is the right forum for that, I'll have to go to the audio cards one

I have been watching Blu Rays on my Laptops and PC gaming rig for over 2yrs.

I have only had a problem with very early Blu Rays and it is usually because the Blu ray is lower quality than what is out now.

Powerdvd 11 or 12 and total media theater are solid options.

I have been using powerdvd since version 9 and I am on 11 right now. I suggest you do a fresh install of the software or invest in a quality software program to watch blu rays. Too many people think they should be able to watch Blu rays for free after they spend some money on an OEM Blu Ray optical drive. That isnt the case you need to get a quality software package to enjoy your movies stress free. If you need help there are many other forums that discuss just Audio and Visual issues on PC's. I usually go to those websites when I run accross something that is giving me a problem. AVSforum is a good one to look at.

good luck

The most solid option is AnyDVD-HD, mpc-hc, and opening the required playlist file (.mpls). Most Blu-rays have different versions of the same movie, and offer seamless branching (to save space). Anyone who simply recommends opening an .m2ts file has no idea how Blu-ray is structured. If you just want all of the stupid extra features and the menus, just get a standalone Blu-ray player from a big-box store and save yourself the headaches. Blu-ray on anything but a real player is a pain, and it's that way on purpose.

oh sweet vlc can do blu-ray now. i love vlc thumb.gif
post #18 of 20
Vlc works, you have to install the AACS decoder to make it work. Im running Windvd Pro 11 and have never seen a blu ray disc i couldnt play, has worked flawless.
post #19 of 20
I just bought a bluray drive, I didn't know playback was going to be a problem.

I have VLC, that works now right? Is there another free solution?
