    Hey,

    i'm currently have issues with certian newer Pokemon Blurays which after anydvd removes protection play annoying prerolls (copyright notice and stuff) even tho i disabled that in the settings of anydvd and then just black screen and no menu comes up, after reading throught the "FAQ" i'm very positive this is playlist obfuscation at work.

    I've made sure the disc working fine (tested on my PS5) and all disc play correctly on there.

    I bought all these discs from amazon with following Links
    https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07PJJFJBM
    https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07T3NQBQM
    https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B083N4D363
    https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B08DSVJR7F

    Names:
    Pokémon – Der Film
    Pokémon 3 – Im Bann der Icognito
    Pokémon 10 – Der Aufstieg von Darkrai
    Pokémon - Arceus und das Juwel des Lebens

    EAN:
    4006448365714
    4006448365783
    4006448366032
    4006448366094

    All these are German discs.

    I've attached all logs needed, if anything more is needed i would gladly provide that to get anydvd updated :)

    I don't see anything special. How do you play back on your PC? Please try to set AnyDVD to "default" settings.

    I'm using VLC for playback, i've also reset AnyDVD to default settings and i still have the same issue (had to change "remove player region code" so that it wouldn't show mismatched player region after resetting settings back to default tho)

    If you play it using VLC you can set it to directly play the movie. Open VLC, select Medien and then Medium öffnen, as you can see in this screenshot.
    There you can choose if it is a dvd or bd and there is a checkbox to play it without the menu, see here.

    I have many movies on DVD, but I don't own the new BD Versions, so I cannot try it myself.

    Edit: you wrote that you use VLC while I was still writing this.

    That does work (it goes directly to the movie) but i think the menu not working is still something which should be investigated, right? i have older anime blurays which work just fine with the menu so i was reporting this in case thats something which should be fixed.

    Using these settings still has the same issue with the menu not comming up and the annoying prerolls playing even tho i set anydvd to remove those, i also tested another player which has exactly the same issue.

    What version is your VLC? The current one is 3.0.16.

    Yeah... Yours might be too old having these issues. With older versions you have to pick the m2ts files and menus don't really work. So most likely it's a VLC issue.

    This might be an implementation error of VLC. Can you try an officially licensed player, e.g. PowerDVD?

    Sadly i can't test PowerDVD as it will install but not start no matter what, is there another official licensed player i could try?

    That one works but doesn't do menu's, VLC also works when i skip menus but i just wanted to investigate this cause i thought its an issue with AnyDVD rather than VLC

    I just tried WinDVD and it can play the menu just fine, its clearly not an AnyDVD issue but a VLC implementation issue, i will report this on VLC ^^

    Thanks for all the input!
