Thread: Can't get bluray disk to play

  1. #1

    Default Can't get bluray disk to play

    I've tried smplayer, vlc, and kaffeine without any luck on openSUSE
    12.3 and 13.1. The disk in question worked OK in Windows 7.

    I hear kaffeine is no longer supported so I'm not surprised it doesn't seem
    to have heard of bluray disks.

    Vlc came closest in that it actually gave an error message -
    "missing AACS configuration file" - but that was it. It also added a
    comment that I should look in "the log" but didn't suggest in which
    part of the woodpile I might find this particular log and how I would
    recognise it.

    I'd added "vlc-codecs" from packman (from whence came "vlc" itself) in
    the hope that this might be a solution but it proved not to be so.

    It is my opinion you are wasting time messing with blue-ray movies in any version of Linux. Without a doubt, if you want to play a blue-ray disk, get a stand alone DVD player. Else, if you are set on a HTPC, build or buy a Windows based one and use PowerDVD. openSUSE does support blue-ray data disks and thier high capacity. Its encoded movies that does not work and for which I suggest you forget about linux.

    Thank You,

    Thanks, James, but I've now found a way to play the Blu-ray disk using
    Vlc on Linux. I found the solution here:
    http://www.webupd8.org/2012/08/how-t...s-working.html
    It's para 2 which describes how to create the missing AACS
    configuration file.

    Although it worked, it was a bit jerky compared with PowerDVD on
    Windows. There are a few other things I need to look at to see if I can
    fix that.

    As I've only one Blu-ray disk - bought in error - I'm a bit loathe to
    get a Blu-ray player yet as I've got enough electronic gizmos
    cluttering up the place already.
