Re: MakeMKV 1.14.2 and Kodi 18.0

For Linux, a work around can be achieved by editing MakeMKV source code before building https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16824#p61608 . For MacOS, we don't have access to the MakeMKV source code. A solution can be had, however, by editing libbluray source code and building libluray...

MakeMKV 1.14.2 and Kodi 18.0

Hi, I like to play my blu-ray discs with Kodi. When version 18.0 was in beta, I tried playing blu-rays without success. Apparently Kodi had incorporated a new version of libbluray, which broke on-the-fly decryption by MakeMKV. For MacOS and Linux I found a solution which required editing of Kodi sou...

Makemkv 1.14.2 with Kodi 18.0 or VLC 3.0

On my Ubuntu 18.04 system blurays without BD+ would play without issue with unmodified Makemkv 1.14.2, but discs with BD+ protection would fail. There have been some changes to Makemkv since 1.12 that accommodate the libbluray API for aacs decryption. Unfortunately, the changes didn't go as far as f...

Re: libmmbd with kodi18

My bad. Sorry about that.

The first line of the definition of aacs_set_fopen() should be:

Code: Select all

AACS_PUBLIC void __cdecl aacs_set_fopen(AACS *aacs, void *bd_disc_structure_pointer, void* p)
I've edited my instructions to correct this omission.

Re: libmmbd with kodi18

@dgktkr Would you mind sharing your changes? I think a lot of Kodi 18 testers would love to be able to use MakeMKV as they did before. OK. Here are the details. In makemkv-oss-1.12.0/libmmbd/src/aacs.cpp, the function aacs_open_device() is defined: AACS_PUBLIC int __cdecl aacs_open_device(AACS *aac...

Building from source?

In the MakeMKV Linux forum there are links to files and instructions for building from source: https://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=224 Can similar for MacOS be made available? On my system I've gotten configure to execute without error, but the Makefile has a number of references to L...

Re: libmmbd with kodi18

FWIW After a good amount of experimentation I've succeeded in getting Kodi 18 to play bluray discs by making changes only in the libmmbd source, recompiling and installing. Kodi and libbluray are unmodified. The first trick is to use the handle, the second parameter of aacs_set_fopen() in makemkv-os...

Re: Bluray playback script for VLC/HandBrake/Kodi on Windows

This is a very had fix. The bug is really in (new) libbluray architecture and in how xbmc calls it. Agreed. The libbluray code seems to reveal that, in the past, an effort was made to make it compatible with libmmbd. The recent addition of bd_open_files() (libbluray v1.0.2) seems to break that comp...

Re: Kodi + libmmbd + bluray menus?

http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15571&p=61239 Isn't that a separate issue? I've modified Kodi and libbluray code so that aacs_open_device() in libmmdb:aacs.cpp gets a proper non-NULL path for its second parameter. After that is done, blurays play just fine through the simplified ...

Kodi + libmmbd + bluray menus?

Hi, I'm trying to get bluray menus to work with Kodi (MacOS and Linux). And with the latest version of Kodi (v18) that requires some modification of libbluray source code and a recompile. The libbluray source has comments that say menus won't work if libmmbd is used for decryption. Here is my questi...

Re: libmmbd with kodi18

Hi, Kodi 18 used to crash for me also on Ubuntu 17.10. However, I've implemented a fix that, after preliminary testing, seems to work. The solution points to a Kodi coding problem, not a Makemkv or libbluray problem. In the Kodi source file ~/xbmc/xbmc/cores/VideoPlayer/DVDInputStreams/DVDInputStrea...

Blu-Ray disc + MakeMKV (libmmbd.dylib) + Kodi 15.0 :-(

This is shaping up to be a problem that will be hard to track down. For some discs, using MakeMKV (paid for and registered, BTW) to play a Blu-Ray disc on Kodi 15.0 produces broken video on my display (http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=230514). Some discs don't exhibit the problem (Alien and A...

Re: Direct video streaming

I've started looking into it and it appears the problem could be dealt with by either MakeMKV or XBMC. I get the impression from the logs, that XBMC sees dts/pts discontinuities and tries to seek way back on the previous segment of a seamless(!) branch. It partially freaks out when this happens. My ...

Re: Direct video streaming

Does MakeMKV handle seamless branching well in 1.7.6 while streaming BluRay disks? The reason I ask is that I'm trying to figure out what to do about very noticeable glitches that occur in direct playback of Alien. I've checked, and the starting times of the glitches corresponds the transitions betw...

Re: Streaming issues with BD+ discs

I haven't found any of my small collection of bluray disks that stream reasonably to VLC 2.0.3. Symptoms are similar to what you two guys describe. However, XBMC 11.0 does a good job on the disks I've tried, for the most part. I'm thinking that the pretty horrendous glitches in Alien occur at the "s...
