1. Install VLC and MakeMKV
2. Go to the MakeMKV installation directory (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\MakeMKV) and copy libmmbd.dll to the VLC installation directory (usually C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC) twice
3. Rename one of these copies to libaacs.dll and the other to libbdplus.dll
4. Open MakeMKV and activate it.
5. You should be able to play BDs in VLC using the Media > Open Disc > Blu-Ray function.
if this is a 4k disk make sure to uncheck disk menus
Okay, the Mac (and Linux) procedure are documented
in the OS-specific Forums. You use a series of symbolic links to do this. The method you've documented with copying the *.dll a couple of times and renaming seems plausible for Windows. However, I didn't get direct Blu-Ray playback to work (VLC v3.0.6 64-bit and MakeMKV v1.14.3).
That said, I believe it does work with the appropriate method for Windows, but I'm confused why we don't have an OS-specific Forum for Windows and have this procedure as a sticky therein. It's entirely possible this is documented somewhere and I don't see it. (Please, someone, let me know if it is.)
I guess I've really got two questions: 1) Shouldn't we have a Window-specific Forum? and 2) What's the procedure to get VLC to work in Windows?
