LG Player won't play Blue Ray Discs with VLC (suggestions)? - Page 3

It looks like you have to pay for AnyDVD HD now. I went to the website (assuming it's made by SlySoft) and they only have a 21 day trial.

It's been that way for a long, long time.

And yes as mentioned, the reason yo couldn't playback your blu-ray material was that you weren't decrypted (read: removing copyright protection) from the discs. AFAIK, there isn't much software that is capable of this on the blu-ray side. If you plan on keeping the blu-ray drive and watching blu-rays, anydvd is well worth the investment.

So that puts me back at square one with purchasing software to play blue-rays which is what I'm trying to find a way around right now.
It's looking like there's not a "freeware" solution for Blue ray playback. =(

So I guess the question now would be PowerDVD12 or AnyDvD_HD?

To decrypt? unfortunately, no there isn't a free-ware option atm that i'm aware of. However, once you've decrypted the blu-ray, then you're free to play it in essentially whatever method you so desire; whether that be with VLC (i don't recommend this option) or MPC-HC (i recommend this option) or any other play you want.

The only caveat is, you need to find out some information in the blu-ray on which file to playback. And unfortunately, unless you buy the blu-ray centered playback software, the simple action of inserting the disc and clicking play is not going to be available for a long time.

It's quite an old and involved method, required running Linux and regularly updating some software but it does work although the performance isn't exactly stellar (think 30s to start any bd command like play, seek etc ). Given its from about 2 years ago, I was expecting things to have progressed further...... Clearly not!

Wow. Totally wishing I bought a standalone sony 3D blue ray player for my TV now.
Thank you so much to everyone for all of your help on this and thank you to the OCN community.
I think I'm going to bite the bullet and pickup a license for PowerDVD12 Ultra.

Yeah this was a good discussion. I wasn't aware that it was AnyDVD that was allowing me to playback blu ray in XBMC so this is good to know. I guess I've had AnyDVD for so long that I just take it for granted now. wink.gif

You can also use MakeMKV to decode the BluRay...but it is kind of a pain. Probably no more than AnyDVD though, but I haven't personally tried that. However, this will allow for Blu-Ray play back on Linux if you want to go that route.

I use PowerDVD12 as well...it stinks, but I think it is probably the best there is. Menus have no Mouse support. If I don't want to use the 7.1 surround sound and just use the normal TV speakers I have to set all volume options to 100% and you will still barely hear it. The software doesn't seem to like just going into Stereo sound mode.

If I can...I rip the disk and then play it with VLC, but for a Blu-Ray that is like a 2 hour job and I don't always have that kind of time.
