mpv instead of mplayer

Should we update the wiki for playing bluray with mpv instead of mplayer, since new development is focused on mpv? —This unsigned comment is by Robin007bond (talk) 15:36, 23 March 2015‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

mplayer is still developed [1], the situation is similar to xterm/rxvt-unicode. I think it's easy enough for people adapt instructions through [2]. -- Alad (talk) 14:48, 23 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AACS Updater

The current libaacs implementation does not use the online database. The wiki page only has instructions for manually downloading the KEYDB.cfg from the page. Any instructions how to actually build AACS updater could be added here and forwared to upstream, as there is no GNU compatible project files (Makefile) to compile this on any Linux, or at least I can not figure out how to compile!

libaacs is partly broken

Also, currently libaacs seems to be broken unless a VUK is found - see Wild Penguin (talk) 06:10, 5 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

--hwdec unrecognized in mplayer

The page mentions one should use with nvidia mplayer --hwdec=auto but this does not work:

mplayer --hwdec=auto --vd-lavc-threads=4 br:/
Unknown option on the command line: --hwdec=auto
Error parsing option on the command line: --hwdec=auto
MPlayer SVN-r38101 (C) 2000-2018 MPlayer Team

Leawo Blu-ray Player is not open source, but it is free, works perfectly on Wine, and can handle all flavors of Blu-ray DRM. I find it to be by far the easiest way to watch Blu-rays on Linux. —Alex Henrie (talk) 22:00, 8 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I needed aribb24 to play some BD discs

When trying to get my English copy of NEW GAME! & NEW GAME!! working I had to install aribb24 to get VLC to go past a "libbluray demux: Initializing overlay" message. Just thought it was worth mentioning here.
