After reading my previous post, it seems clear that I was half-asleep when I wrote it. :D I figured it out, so please allow me to share my procedure. I attempted to use the method written by @Billycar11 earlier in this thread to get VLC to play a Blu-ray disc. Unfortunately, this wasn't an automatic...

OS-specific Forum for Windows?

Greetings! I was curious why there isn't an OS-specific Forum for Windows. More specifically, I was looking for a corresponding sticky thread for "Direct Blu-ray playback with VLC player" for Windows (just as you can find in the MacOS and Linux forums).

Re: More on Blu-Ray playback with VLC Player

Re: More on Blu-Ray playback with VLC Player

Hey, GHender3. Thanks for the input. I hope you might humor a little discussion to help me clarify a few things that have been plaguing me for a little while now. This pertains to MakeMKV 1.10.5, and the VLC 2.2.4. Just to be clear, I'm running the same thing. I created symlinks to MakeMKV within th...
