I don't know anything about libbluray - don't use it, don't have it
installed. I can suggest the below, but it is vague and I don't
intend to get more explicit.

+Correction: MPlayer does support encrypted BluRay playback, though we do not
+deal with how to obtain decryption keys. The two alternative methods use the
+URL schemes bd:// (always supports decryption, but you need the key for each
+and every disk in ~/.dvdcss/KEYDB.cfg and only works well with very simple
+BluRays, similar to dvd:// vs. dvdnav://) and br:// (uses libbluray and
+supports whatever that supports/was configured to support - if done
+correctly that should be the same as VLC mentioned below, but we
+are not involved in that).
 MPlayer does not have encrypted BluRay disc playback support yet, but VideoLAN does with this plugin!
