Encryption and the DMCA can go to hell, I have every right to play movies no matter if it's "my" copy or a friend's copy I "borrowed".
    Agreed...I'd like to be able to play my *LEGALLY* obtained bluray/DVD discs on whatever platform I choose

      There is a program called MakeMKV that uses a Blu-ray decryption key (I assume it's one that's been stolen) to dump the contents of the disc into an MKV container. Once that's done, you can play it with Mplayer or VLC (tip: Turn off Compiz and you get smoother video).

      I have a library of eleven Blu-ray discs that I own that I can rip with DumpHD or MakeMKV (and they play with Mplayer); and I've borrowed two recent Blu-ray releases from the video library that can also be ripped and played.

      BTW I recently did some heavy editing of the now-famous Ubuntu wiki page on playing Blu-ray and HD-DVD (it was very outdated), so if there are any problems you know who to contact :-)
      Nice...I will look for these programs. Are there .debs for these?

        Thanks for sharing. ^^ Sucks that it is closed, but after following the directions for MakeMKV for compilation everything worked perfectly in Karmic Koala. (Follow http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=224 Download both "bin" and "source" packages, install dependencies, run make & install commands on source as instructed, run make and install commands on bin as instructed, download SVQ files and configure paths in BD+ options. Rip BDs! ^^)

        Hopefully DumpHD will get easier to use as last time I tried it I had too many problems.
