Play Bluray with VLC 2.1.6 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Notes to self on setting up Bluray play back with VLC 2.1.6 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS – unless I write it down I’ll forget!

Blu Ray support is installed with this command:

sudo apt-get install vlc libaacs0 libbluray-bdj libbluray1

These 2 command create a hidden directory and download an aacs keys file for VLC:

mkdir -p ~/.config/aacs/

cd ~/.config/aacs/ && wget http://vlc-bluray.whoknowsmy.name/files/KEYDB.cfg

and VLC will play Blu-Rays.
