    First of all, thank for your great work with this. Blu-Ray-Support is a killer feature and I'm really enjoying alle the progress you guys do here almost daily :D I finally had some time to do tests with the discs I own. These are the result of the first 4 discs, 10 more will follow:

    300
    BD-J: No
    Menu mode: OK
    Title mode: OK
    Additional information: Main movie starts right away, menu seems to be only for chosing language/subtitles and bonus material.

    Confessions of a Shopaholic (Die Schnäppchenjägerin)
    BD-J: Yes
    Menu mode: Not working (see below)
    Title mode: OK
    Additional information: When entering Menu mode, I only see a message "This disc will not play because of the player's region settings". In MP configuration I configured the player for region "B" and that's also printed on the disc (German version bought in Germany). Logs attached with first try to play in menu mode and second try with title mode.

    Dirty Dancing
    BD-J: No
    Menu mode: OK
    Title mode: OK
    Additional information: Main movie starts right away, menu seems to be only for chosing language/subtitles and bonus material.

    Earth (Unsere Erde)
    BD-J: Yes
    Menu mode: OK (see below)
    Title mode: OK
    Additional information: There are two "special" menu items. The first seems to use PIP, but says it's not available for my player and it will start the movie the normal way - it does so. The second seems to use BD-Live stuff. If I chose this item, I get back to MP (MyVideos). See logs attached.

    All tests were done with V3 and LAVF 0.45. I'll update the wiki when I'm done. Btw: should we add the tested version to the wiki list? Let me know if you need any further informations.

    Thanks for your work!

    BlueRay Support is highly appreciated! I guess people simply do not want to update their running system to Alpha 1.3 in order to test.
    Is there any possibility to test with MP 1.2.2 ?

    Thanks again!

    Yes you can but for better result, it will be ok to avoid third party plugin etc.
    In few first page of the thread, there is explanation to backup actual installation to revert easily and also batch script to do it quickly :)

    HTPC software is the kind of software you don't want crashing all the time so I can understand why people are hesitant to test versions branded "alpha", unless they happen to have a spare test rig they can use. BD support is definitely a killer feature though so I hope work on it continues! :)

    And that is pretty much the reason why a new features must be tested properly before they can be added to a release - no proper amount of testing -> not going to be included in release.

    Re: AW: Native Blu-ray support

    No, since there are too many changed components so the patching would most likely just cause false reports or even much worser behavior for the exisitng features than just using the installer.

    Some BDs dont have real root menu, so this is normal.

    The region warning is usually non BD-J content. And as it is BD-J disk it is normal that the playback in menu mode will fail at some point (if it doesn't do it already in the starting phase).


    Same as for 300.

    It is normal that the playback stops when BD-J title is tried to play - libbluray gives up as there is no BD-J support turned on (the implementation is almost non-existent, just some stub implemenations so it cannot be turned on).

    Yes please.

    More tested disks would be nice :)

    A sample would be nice to have as BD is causing crashing.

    Normal behavior for BD-J.

    A sample would be good to have since crashing with seeking.

    A sample would be good to have since crashing with seeking.

    Probably some BD-J title would start to play at that freezing point, but it shoudl generally return back to MP GUI at that point. A sample of that BD would be good to have.

    Normal behavior for BD-J enabled content.

    As the disk content is so much different between each disk there is no good way to produce consistent test results between different testers. So, just testing the normal use is enough (navigate in menu, test extras, start movie etc.).

    Could you please add the test results into wiki as well?

    Lib has been fixed so that it reports the correct results. Popup menu entry shouldn't be anymore missing in the next test release.
