How to Open Blu-ray Movie in VLC Player?
VLC is an exceptional free media player software and available for almost every operating system, Mac, Windows, Android, iOS and Linux devices. The only limitation in the program lies in that it doesn't support all audio video formats. To support Blu-Ray playback, VideoLAN and the VLC development team present the fifth version of "Twoflower" which is VLC 2.0.4 (now the version is 2.2.4). Here I'd like to share a comprehensive guide on how to get Blu-ray playable on VLC player.
Part I: How to Play Blu-Ray Movies with VLC on Window/Mac
Download the latest version of VLC media player.
After that, go to VLC Blu-ray page to download the keys database and AACS dynamic library.
Guide for Windows User:
Step One: Go in the "C:Usersyour usernameAppData" for Windows Users.
Step Two: Enable viewing hidden files. Click on Folder Options and then click on View tab, in the View tab check this option "Show hidden files and folders" and click on Ok button.
Step Three: Create a new folder in the App data with name aacs and paste the downloaded KEYDB.cfg key file in this new folder.
Step Four: Install AACS dynamic library on your computer. Just visit C drive and find out "Video LAN > VLC" in the program files. Then paste or drag and drop AACS Dynamic library file in this folder.
Step Five: Run VLC and click on Media and then click on Open Media option. In the popup, click on "Disk" and check "Blu-Ray" option then click on Play button. Now your Blu-ray movie will start playing in VLC.
Guide for Mac User:
After downloading key database and AACS DYNAMIC LIBRARY from the site, put key database in the below directory /Library/Preferences/aacs/ (if this folder is not there then create it) on your Mac, and AACS dynamic library in the ~/lib directory. Now you can easily play Blu-ray movies on Mac using VLC media player.
