Playing blu-ray in VLC gets Missing AACS configuration file!

de flag

Following the answer here: Missing AACS configuration file" error when playing blueray movies but am still getting the exact same error.

Ran with logging:

keydbcfg.c:680: No valid AACS configuration files found
aacs.c:121: No usable AACS libraries found!
dec.c:197: aacs_open() failed: -2!

It would have been nice if they had put the file they were looking for in the log...

Anyway, I have placed the file in .config/aacs/KEYDB.cfg and sym linked it to snap/vlc/current/.config/aacs/KEYDB.cfg.

Not sure what to do next.

This [has been an issue for years]( There are some hacks to get around it, but they're all so ... hacky and disc-specific, meaning you'd have to do the same hacky thing with each BluRay disc you want to watch. Some people opt to use MakeMKV to convert BluRays to `.mkv` files, which seems to get around this issue, but can be legally questionable if the disc is a rental or borrowed from someone

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
