Try this. Open terminal and enter the following.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libaacs0 libbluray-bdj libbluray1
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Then this.

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

To anyone who has this issue after installing the ACSS files (and has rebooted...a critcal step)...follow this process:

1. Insert Blu-Ray Movie

2. Launch VLC

3. CTRL+D to enter Disc Menu

4. Select Blu-Ray Option and check: No Menu option.

5. Under drive select browse and highlight your drive only on the left side (not the 3 folders on the right)

6. Select Play from the former "Open Media" screen.

Viola! The movie plays every time in crisp HD Blu-Ray goodness. No more Dual-Booting M$ Windows for that reason. I hope this helps anyone looking to play Blu-Rays and had the same experience outlined in this forum.

Blu-ray error:

AACS Host certificate revoked.

Your input can't be opened:

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'bluray:///media/karen/RED_BIRD_2D_WW'. Check the log for details.
