Unable to play Blu-Ray media

Postby JC Denton on Sun Nov 04, 2012 12:20 pm

Greetings, everyone. Not so long ago I switched from Ubuntu 10.10 to Mint 13 and recently I've ran into a problem with playing blu-ray rips. When I still used Ubuntu I could just open the movie folder (which contains "BDMV" and "CERTIFICATE" subfolders) with VLC, but this is not the case with Mint 13. Instead a window with "No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "undf". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this." messages pops up. The way I get it, codecs necessary to decode the media are missing. Can anyone, please, tell me what codecs are needed exactly, or how can I obtain information necessary to solve this issue? Thank you in advance.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Did you just install VLC from the repositories, or did you install the VideoLan PPA?

To install the VideoLan PPA:
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc
LMDE Mate 64-bit, LM17 Mate 64-bit
Debian Xfce 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.10 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.04 64-bit, Antergos Xfce 64-bit, PCLinuxOS LXDE 64-bit

Thank you for your reply. VLC was pre-installed in Mint. Unfortunately, your solution didn't work - I'm still getting the same error messages. May be, you have some other ideas?
