    After switching to Ubuntu 11.10 because I screwed up my Windows Partition. I just got my normal email from Slysoft of an AnyDVD HD update. And then thought oh crap!

    Is there an alternative to AnyDVD for Linux? Or how do I play blu-ray discs? Or am I actually out of luck with that?

    VLC and this site perhaps (I don't have a Blu-ray to test): VLC Blu-Ray

    And VLC is the only way to accomplish that? I am using SMplayer and would like to keep it that way.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Did a quick search and it's that or coughing up $ for MakeMKV (Linux version: MakeMKV 1.7.2 for Linux).

    Well ain't that something. I guess I will have VLC for my blu-rays, and SMPlayer for the rest.

    VLC has basic blu--ray support and is the only way to do it on linux.

    Best bet: fix windows and do it properly :) Linux will be lucky to get proper blu-ray support due to licensing and certification costs.

    I think I am enjoying Linux too much to go back full time :)

    The second file on that page I can't seem to move, don't have permissions.

    How do I do it?

    Just have to use sudo (kinda like admin for Windows). So ...
    Code:
    sudo cp starting/path/for/libaacs.so.0 /usr/lib64/libaacs.so.0
    Just change the first part of course based on where you downloaded it to (or cd to the folder in terminal 1st then you can just do ...
    Code:
    sudo cp libaacs.so.0 /usr/lib64/libaacs.so.0

    Thanks, I believe it worked. Don't have time to test until I come back from work.

    And I knew it was sudo, just not sure how to do the rest. Thanks.
