Blu-ray applications
« on: December 15, 2019, 03:09:36 am »
Hi guys, I'm looking for applications to be able to read bluray discs correctly, do you have any application to recommend?  Unfortunately today VLC is not available on Power, I was hoping for that but it is not available ...

Without going into the bluray issue for legal reasons, I do want to correct the VLC concern.  I use VLC on POWER quite often as part of my workflow -- e.g. to check video output from kdenlive (in 4k, actually!).  If your distro doesn't have VLC for POWER I'd be very, very surprised. ;)

Hi Tim, yet I have tried several times and I could not find it, I had found a site where there are many applications for the various distributions, I went to Fedora and I also found VLC but when I went to download it he wrote me not available for your architecture ...! Where do you get it for example?

great MPC, so then why didn't you let me download VLC, you have to enable the fusion repositories, perfect then I will try to perform this procedure thanks good work!

Installed. And to think that I believed that there was not yet for Power, I didn't know how to look for it and obviously I didn't know the requirements to install it. Except that at the moment it doesn't read many DVDs / Blurays, I need some other files to integrate like the AACS library I installed but which I haven't apparently enabled yet, I have to understand how to do it and how to make it work better. Thanks again to the MPC for the procedure!

Try MakeMKV: https://www.makemkv.com/

For Linux you have to compile the sources: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=224

Even if you do, there is still a x86 binary-only blob that does the actual extraction. (You should or should not trust me as I may or may not have tried this.) That blob I so far have not gotten running in qemu-user.

VLC works quite well however, of course some discs do not read them in any case, unfortunately, especially the most recent ones, I am always talking about original material and regularly purchased in stores. I hope that updates will gradually come out to improve the situation.

Hi guys, that you know is there the possibility to compile the MakeMKV application on Power? I just tried but I get stuck on the command: ./configure --prefix = / usr --disable-static
it gives me the error that says: configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one

As for the list of libraries you ask me, it seems that there is no library for us: libqt4-dev

Have any of you ever tried to build this application by accident?

All that application is, is the front-end. It doesn't do any key extraction. You need the x86-only blob for that and it is not open-source.

I understand so it is not usable anyway.  I had read that it was an ideal application for reading Blu-rays on Linux.  Obviously I always talk about original and regularly purchased software.

Good MPC, interesting discussion. At this point we just have to follow the story and see if they will develop MakeMKV for us too ...

For simple jobs, can you get away with ffmpeg for now?

Code: [Select]
ffmpeg -i ./BDMV/STREAM/00000.m2ts transcoded.mkv
