    • While most people will download MP2 to "check it out", we need to know what you think, so please help us by filling in bug reports. Find out how here.

    True client server architecture has been a long time demanded feature. There are a lot of implications,, not only to have centralized databases , but also for deployment and maintenance of the clients, and user based grants to different functionalities. Many, many thanks for the work done!!!

    Unprotected BluRay can be played title-based using the inbuilt BDHandler plugin (LAV, haali splitter).

    A MP2 version of "Native BluRay Support" (incl. menu) is under development, I will continue on this part soon

    Just had a quick play (only 5 min) but all I can say is WOW.
    Instant start and close down
    Everything is fluid
    Love the video effects
