Thank you very much!!!!

Obviously the founder of this thread is not among the living anymore Wink, otherwise he would have answered our questions/prayers a long time ago.
There is some confusion/mystique about keys and files you have to put a certain place and versions of the addon you have to use that is beyond my comprehension as a user.
We need an updated guide for linux, openelec, windows and other platforms.

Try to remove the spaces before and after "=".
That should work.

For those interested, you can grab a Gotham compatible release here: https://github.com/X-dark/plugin.makemkvbluray/releases
I have only bumped the Python API requirement. If you experience anything that was working with Frodo and no more working with Gotham, please let me know.

I will try to do some cleanup as well and look if it is possible to push this to an addon repository.

It doesn't work for me on the latest OpenELEC Nightly snapshot.

I'll have a look. Could you open an issue as a reminder in the meantime: https://github.com/X-dark/plugin.makemkvbluray/issues

First off, my apologies- I'm very new to the forum and have been reading through this thread and searching on my own to get the info I need to set this up for Windows. It looks like the OP (or possibly someone taking this over for magnetism) posted links to an addon file and a plugin file in the original post. I'm just a little confused if in fact it will work for the Windows versions as well. I'm getting ready to set up my first HTPC and plan to install XBMC, but some later posts seem to indicate that this wasn't working correctly in Frodo.

Can someone please help clarify which zip I should use and what steps I should take to install it? For reference purposes, I originally found this thread via the following Lifehacker article on Blu-ray playback: http://lifehacker.com/5621471/how-to-ena...ck-in-xbmc. It's definitely pretty dated though (posted 8/25/10), so it may not even be accurate anymore.

Any help would be very much appreciated! Trying to set up a simple and easy to use AV solution for the wife and kids in hopes of cutting the cable and this is a piece of that puzzle.

Thanks!

uNiversal, that link seems to kick me up to post #481 (iPaddle) or 482 earlier at the top of this page, but that would appear to be for Linux. Am I missing something? Are the procedures essentially the same for both Linux and Windows?

ah windows sorry, idk this is a Linux thread anyway. I read somewhere that you need a external player in windows for unencrypted blurays.

Ok, switched to Gotham (Openelec 3.95.1) and got makemkv addon for Gotham. Still using the original makemkvbluray addon and is still playing my BD's. Smile
