Kodi + libmmbd + bluray menus?

Post by dgktkr » Thu Mar 08, 2018 4:29 pm

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 question: what is the connection between decryption and menus? What is libmmbd not doing that would allow menus?

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 menu that Kodi presents, but neither of the on-disc menu types (BDMV or BD-J) work properly.

I'm trying to get bluray menus to work in Kodi and I'm wondering if libmmbd has anything to do with that.
