I have heard that it does but not been able to get it to work myself. Are there special steps invloved?

from what I understand ( I do not have a bluray drive, so i cannot test ) you can use a program like any dvd hd to bypass the copyright protection on a bluray disc, then find the appropriate m2ts file and run that in vlc.

edit: on the vlc forums, from nkoriyama, a Developer "And Blu-ray Discs playback is currently experimental feature. Not for typical users."

and from lifehacker "The Easy Method: Watch Your Movie in 30 Minutes using VLC

The easiest way to watch Blu-rays without commercial software is to use a program called MakeMKV to rip the movie, and then watch it using VLC. To do this:

Install MakeMKV
Insert your Blu-ray disc. Make sure you have enough space on your drive
Fire up MakeMKV and head to File > Open Disc and choose your Blu-ray drive. MakeMKV will open the disc, and then present you with the titles on the disc. Hit the MakeMKV button and your movie should start ripping.
When it's done, just double click on the resulting file and it will play in VLC.


***I also found this http://vlc-bluray.whoknowsmy.name/ which says that it enables vlc to play bluray

What about CCCP? I assume it adds stuff that MPC-HC is natively incapable of doing (that said I've noticed MPC-HC'x internal filter list is pretty comprehensive - is the only thing MPC-HC incapable of doing is playing Blu-rays out of the box?)

Since I got my new Samsung Blu-ray reader, I found out I also needed a program that reads blu-ray too. It came with power-dvd 9 which is stupidly slow, buggy and slow, and just down right slow. Now I use VLC player smile.gif Coincidence, they release version 2.0 with BR support one week after I got my reader thumb.gif
