Watching blu-ray DVDs on Windows 10

Watching blu-ray DVDs on Windows 10

Has anybody gotten VLC to play Blu-Ray disks on Windows 10? I have followed the instructions located here, but still cannot play the blu-ray I want to play.

Everything else I have found is downloading and installing other blu-ray players, which I'd rather not do.
VLC does have aacs codecs for download on their site but do not explain how to install them. There are no setup/installation files, there is a readme file but it only says that this was not meant for piracy. I am not looking to commit piracy I am only looking to watch a blu-ray on my PC.

Anybody have any suggestions?

RE: Watching blu-ray DVDs on Windows 10

Playing Blu-ray has always been tricky... I bought PowerDVD to be able to do it on mine.

Even with a Blu-Ray player software, some blu-ray discs still don't play (such as James Cameron's "Avatar"), because... well... encryption.

I have a linux KODI box that I set up to play blu-ray... and it plays every one except Avatar... which I have to put in my PS4 to play.

Just my $.02

I don't know if this is relevant, but keep in mind that Blu-Ray disks have region encoding, just like DVDs. That might explain why you can play some disks but not others.
