I'm running into an issue in VLC

When I go to open disk in VLC (Ctrl D) > DVD > Play. I get this error

"Playback failure: DVDRead could not open the disc "F:". Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///F:\'. Check the log for details."

I'm posting the verbose logs from message below.

But when I open VLC with admin rights then it plays fine, Windows Enterprise 10_1809 Workstation is in an Active Directory Domain.

this is effecting multiple workstations with diffrent hardware configurations

Please can you help.

Thank You

    Is it only VLC? Can you copy the files from the DVD using Explorer? – Michael Frank Jul 31 at 0:11
  • @MichaelFrank You gave me the idea, I found a workaround, it works thank you! – Levi91 Aug 7 at 21:57

What I found that worked for me was either opening VLC with Admin Rights or first browsing the DVD drive in Windows Explorer (“Open”) and then on the VIDEO_TS folder > “Play with VLC”

Thank You all for your help.

I have the same problem with VLC Mediaplayer 32-bit 3.0.71 (also tried 64-bit) on WIN 10 Pro Build 17763.

Playback failure: DVDRead could not open the disc "I:". Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///I:/'. Check the log for details. dvdread error: DVDRead cannot open source: I:

Running VLC with admin right also worked for me. Tried different DVD drives and different DVDs.

  • After updating Windows to 1903 running VLC and watching DVDs works fine without admin priviliges. – dirtrunner Aug 6 at 14:08
  • After installing new Updates on 1903 the problem is back again. Watching DVDs only works when its openend with admin rights! – dirtrunner Aug 6 at 14:54
