AnyDVD HD Alternative


OSNN Veteran Original
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?

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.

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.

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 ...
sudo cp starting/path/for/ /usr/lib64/
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 ...
sudo cp /usr/lib64/

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
