    BluRay disks, easy way to determine if disk is 'BD+' copy protected?

    Hello

    I have 12.04 installed along with VLC player (not 2.1, but 2.0 variant).

    I followed the instructions to play BluRay movies here:
    http://www.webupd8.org/2012/08/how-t...s-working.html

    The install seemed to go well, but when I play Kill Bill 2 bluray, the video and audio is all jumbled.

    The above instructions state: "(it doesn't work for Blu-rays that use BD+). "

    I suspect my Kill Bill 2 DVD is BD+; but how to confirm?
    Are there BD+ specific files that show up in a file folder? Or is it as simple as an icon that is on the packaging? The only icon on the box I saw was like this:


    Any help would be appreciated. I just wish to watch bluray movies on my Asus EB1503 that is connected to my TV. I am not interested in ripping, copying or anything else.

    You could take advantage of MakeMKV's libmmdb library to decrypt the Bluray disc for you and allow playback with VLC, without the need to rip/re-encode.

    Thanks for the lead, rubylaser! I'll give that a shot and report back.
