Manjaro 5.9.xx vlc/makemkv does not play blurays

Post by Cyanwasserstoff » Tue Jan 12, 2021 5:27 pm

Hello community,
I could not fix the problem on the laptop from my brother. He has an external bluray player and he has installed an activated MakeMKV and tried to play different Blurays with the same result. It always stops by the process of initializing the overlay. I could not figure out the problem, because the same program MakeMKV with VLC do work with the same BluRays on my Laptop pretty well. I do not understand what I am missing here.

The installed libbluray vs. is libbluray-awt-j2se-1.2.1.jar / libbluray.so.2.3.0.

The terminal output during the play trial of the bluray was:
libbluray demux: First play: 1, Top menu: 1
HDMV Titles: 17, BD-J Titles: 0, Other: 0
mobj_parse.c:89 MovieObject.bdmv: empty object
uint DBusMenuExporterDBus::GetLayout(int, int, const QStringList&, DBusMenuLayoutItem&): Condition failed menu
libbluraydemux: Initializing overlay



The last part repeats for eternity

The Laptop from my brother is a Asus G712LV - H7007T I7-10750H/16GB/2060 RTX
He is using the bumblebee drivers

I'm having the exact same issue on Arch. It has been driving me crazy trying to work it out. I have resorted to a temporary solution (which is, in my case, not at all preferable) of using VLC, Makemkv and Makemkv VLC plugin flatpaks. If anyone has any idea how to fix this, please do let it be known ;)

After painstakingly testing the reason why the git version of VLC(4.0) works with makemkv and not the repo version, I figured out that I was missing an optional dependency which was stopping VLC from playing blu-ray disks. Try installing aribb24.

Thanks a lot. This was the solution! We have to fix a little sound problem otherwise and unfortunately I cannot travel back to my brother to have a closer look at his laptop, but I will online guid him further.
