You should realise that the people who make the blu-ray disks do not want you to play them on linux. The circumventions needed to get this working may be illegal where you live.

Yeah I have not found a great way to play blu-ray on Linux. My best advice is to just use Windows or Mac to do this. Sorry for this but right now there is no great way to do this.

[mod_edit]I'd personally suggest a HW blu-ray player instead, I don't know why you kids want to watch movies on your computer ... in my day we had grainy black and white and were better for it too. And we had to shift out butts to change channel ... <grumble>

Closing this thread as the OP didn't like the humour used
and got VERY abusive himself.
