Linux Mint and Blu Ray Playing!

Postby javb on Mon Jul 20, 2009 11:47 pm

Hello people,

This is my first post on Linux Mint Forums, and my story on how i came across with Linux Mint is incredible, maybe i ll talk about that later...

I have a laptop, a Dell XPS Studio 1640, which comes with a Blu Ray ROM; I've google some, and i've seen that there is a possibility already of playing Blu Ray format, with VLC, and some codecs out there.

Before start testing, i would like to know if someone here have had experience with Blu Ray and Linux Mint?

Thanks in advance...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I also have a blue-ray rom drive but Have never watched a movie in mint, can I ask where you saw this possibility of blue-ray playback? my understanding is that you have to rip the contents of the disc to your hard drive (probably within windows or virtualbox...) and then play the evo files in vlc....

    Among the new features we can notice support for some HD streams.

    VLC now plays DTS TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus surround audio format introduced by Blu-ray, and an uncompromised Blu-ray Linear PCM surround audio no longer shocks the player.
--if you meant this message, no probably not playing the movie titles/blu ray disk you could buy in a store audio + video from disk playback ?

Sorry, not a guinea pig..

Blu Ray will be heavily DRM coded by the movies studios, at least for playing blu-ray movies, the movie industry's superior image quality format
--alas that often means it is good for spectaculars or animation, but not for any regular movie story, where the superior look won't be as important, and the regular dvd or HD will be just fine..
