Direct Blu-ray playback with VLC player

Post by mike admin » Sat Sep 14, 2013 5:32 am

Starting with version 1.8.5, MakeMKV comes with libmmbd library as described at . This library also emulates libaacs/libbdplus libraries - below are instructions how to setup libmmbd for libaacs/libbdplus emulation. Once done, any libbluray-based application, including VLC player, will be able to open protected blu-ray discs. This is one-time setup per user, you will only have to do it once per user account.

Open terminal, end execute following commands.

Code: Select all

cd ~
mkdir -p ~/lib
ln -s /Applications/ ~/lib/libaacs.dylib
ln -s /Applications/ ~/lib/libbdplus.dylib
You're done. From now on VLC will automatically use MakeMKV for blu-ray decryption.
