Question How to play original Bluray discs from XBMC in Linux?


Hi all,

I've a HTPC with kubuntu and XBMC and I play with no problems MKVs and ISOs from my own blurays (created with Windows in other computer)

Now I have install a Bluray reader with the aim of playing my blurays directly, and I've found it doesn't work (The ISO file works, but original disc doesn't).

¿Hoy can I enable the play of those original optical disks? I've try installing an addon called "makeMKV" but when I try to use it gives a message saying something like "MakeMKV doesn't work, it is installed?"

¿Can someone lend me a hand? I would like to play original BDs in the easyest possible way, as I play ISOS now.

Many thanks in advance

Many thanks for the answers,

I Finally get was I was looking for using makeMKV, the issue was that when I installed prior day it was on the night after 14 hours working and my mind shouldn't be lucid, I had installed XBMC add-on but not the makeMKV itself.

I tested a pair of original blurays I own and seem't to work

The link is:
www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=224

After that, download xbmc add-on and install as usual (install from zip):

Many thanks again

I hope you all realise that this discussion is illegal? If you're based in the US it is in contravention of the Digital Millennium Copyright act and there are various European and other treaties which outlaw it also.
The playback of copy-protected Blu-ray media is not allowed on any device which is not licensed to do so.

The OP wants to play back his self created Blu-Ray discs. Neither copy protection nor copyright infringements are the topic here.
