Starting with version 1.8.5, MakeMKV comes with libmmbd library as described at http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=7008 . This library also emulates libaacs/libbdplus libraries - below are instructions how to setup libmmbd for libaacs/libbdplus emulation. Once done, any libbluray-based application, including VLC player, will be able to open protected blu-ray discs.
These instructions assume that MakeMKV was installed to default location using unmodified makefiles. If it is not the case, you'll have to modify paths to reflect your locations.
Open terminal, navigate to directory where libmmbd is installed, and make a symlink to a location in library path. The following commands are for default installation
You're done. From now on VLC will automatically use MakeMKV for blu-ray decryption.
Code: Select all
sudo ln -s libmmbd.so.0 /usr/lib/
