VLC, makemkv and BD+

Post by legluondunet » Sat May 25, 2019 11:00 am

Hello,

I installed makemkv, use the libmmbd emulation to play my blu ray with VLC, all but the BD+.
VLC can not read BD+ with makemkv.
Is it a know issue?
VLC complained about a java error:

Code: Select all

I can reproduce this issue with all my BD+ played with vlc/makemkv and you?

MakeMKV only uses an installed Java interpreter for playlist obfuscation. For BD+, it has its own limited interpreter for dealing with JUST BD+, when it is writing to a backup or MKV files.

The error says that VLC is trying to use Java, so this should be a VLC support issue.

Than you for your reply, but can you tell me if you can read BD+ with VLC and makemkv emulation?

That I cannot tell you - I do not operate MakeMKV in that mode. I have it create MKVs of the content immediately, and have VLC play those. Actually, I process them through handbrake and put them on the media server, because I don't want to waste the space, or have to go digging through disks to find what I want to play; it's all online.

I have no interest in the menus or most other features - I bought the disk for the movie or series, not for conversations with people on what THEY think of the show.
