VLC Player Wont Play Blue Ray Discs.

I cannot get VLC player to play Blue Ray discs, I have downloaded a file called libaacs.dll, and placed it in the VLC folder that is in the Roaming folder inside AppData but I still cannot get VLc to play Blue Rays discs.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

AF

This page says you need 2 files, did you install them both?

VLC Blu-Ray

Do you get any error when trying to play BluRay discs?

They just don't play.

I think the problem is that VLC player will play Blu Ray providing they are not in disc format. So if you have downloaded a Blu Ray torrent then VLC will play them, if you have bought a disc then VLC wont play them. Sony are buggers as they make you purchase either Coral Windvd pro 11, or Nero Platinum 11 for £60 each, and pay some royalties to Sony in the process.

Hi BomberAF,

If you are trying to make do with freeware ( in which case you have to gracefully accept any limitations with those ) try MPC-Home Cinema Download Media Player Classic Home Cinema, Free Video Player Download with DVDFab Passkey Lite Passkey Lite -- Free and Lite version of Passkey for DVD & Blu-ray running in the background, to play your Blu-ray movies.
