It is not possible to play a BluRay without mounting it (unless you'd go completely crazy and re-implement UDF for no good reason). Either they mount it on their own (seems like a bad idea) or they query where the device is mounted.
The latter could even be part of the latest libbluray versions, mine is a bit outdated, but for me it currently definitely does not work.
