Blu-Ray

Postby ythe1300 on Wed Oct 22, 2008 8:08 pm

I have a Blu-ray drive (LG GGC-H20L) and I can't find anything to just drop in and play HD-DVD and Blu-Ray Discs. I'm stuck with Vista to play them which is killing me.

Anyone heard of anything, other than ripping it?

Thanks,
Phil

Did you see this? http://www.ehomeupgrade.com/2007/04/05/ ... -in-linux/

I don't have Blu-Ray, nor want it, but it may prove to be of use for your purposes.

No I hadn't seen it. I will try to get it to work and report back.

Thanks

I always do.

Really though WTH is wrong with them and the MPAA I mean it shouldn't have to be this hard to watch a movie I bought (and payed a heck of a Premium for). It's to the point where I think it would be easier to buy the movie and then go to the pirate bay and download it if I want to watch it.

You gotta wonder how much sales they are losing because they do this stuff.
