LG Player won't play Blue Ray Discs with VLC (suggestions)?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
This is my 1st Internal Blue Ray player for my PC.

I purchased http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136250 from new egg in December and then moved before I was able to install it.

I cannot get it to play blue rays. It's very slow to load up and play normal DvD's and blue rays don't play at all.
I tried using windows media player and VLC with the ACCS .dll files and KEYDB with no luck.

Windows 64bit VLC with 64 bit libaccld.dll from http://vlc-bluray.whoknowsmy.name/
Blue Ray Movie -- Taken

Blu-Ray error:
This Blu-Ray Disc needs a library for BD+ decoding, and your system does not have it.
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///F:/'. Check the log for details.

I downloaded PowerDVD12 trial to see if maybe that's it and it only works if I have everything closed and then right click and play with PowerDVD12 and it seems to be off and on when it works like if I don't do it exactly right it won't play.

I bought the blue ray burner because it was cheap and I don't have a PS3 or anything to watch blue ray movies on.
If I have to spend $60 on PowerDVD12 or some other software it's not going to be worth the investment. I'd really like to get this working in VLC if possible,

Thanks in advance for any help / advice.

NOTE: These are retail Blue-Rays with all the copy protection stuff on them, not ripped or whatever it's called when you save the files to the hard drive.

VLC Can't play Blu-Ray discs, use the software disc that come with your LG Player, I use Cyberlink PowerDVD 12, I'm not sure if you can get freeware blu-ray player software as I had no need to search for them, Google is your friend

VLC is not a player I personally recommend to people, the above being one of the reasons so.

Even if it could play HD content, there is no guarantee that it can play smoothly on all platforms, due to its universal decoder being incredibly inefficient.

Honestly I don't think there's a reason for anyone to use VLC as their main player, it's great for broken or incomplete video/audio files, but otherwise I can't see the attraction.

as said above it can't play blurays, nothing free can as far as i know. bluray is still new and they aren't going to give just anyone the ability to run it for nothing.

vlc works great for me outside of bluray. not to hijack but what do you recommend if not vlc. i mainly play my (legally owned) dvd rips in h264 from handbrake in .m4v. music i use winamp.

Thank you for all the great responses guys.
I usually just watch movies from red box and return them. I've always used DVD and vlc but thought I'd try to watch some blueray once I got this oem player. So I'm just learning all the requirements.

Ii have the same LG player (or really similar) and it came with powerdvd (version 10 i think--it was a few months ago). it didn't work right on Windows 8, so i ended up buying PowerDVD 12, which according to reviews i read prior worked fine with Windows 8. did yours not come with PowerDVD? i thought all LG blu ray drives did but guess not. anyway--no issues at all with PowerDVD 12, works like a charm. i think i only paid $20-30 or it, so you might check google out and see if you can find any savings codes or promotions. maybe there was something in the trial version that was causing a hiccup. i really don't know what other options are out there for blu ray software-- i certainly couldn't find anything free when i searched around. good luck and let us know what you end up doing, and how it works.

This is what I used when i had my LG BR player, I returned it though because of their crappy support and the drive didn't work right.

But anyway, here's a link: http://vlc-bluray.whoknowsmy.name/
