libbluray is an open-source library designed for Blu-Ray Discs playback for media players, like VLC or MPlayer.

This research project is developed by an international team of developers from Doom9.

Latest release is libbluray 1.3.4.


NB: Most commercial Blu-Ray are protected by AACS or BD+ technologies and this library is not enough to playback those discs.

People interested in AACS technologies should have a look at libaacs.

People interested in BD+ technologies should have a look at libbdplus.
