Blu-ray playback/ HDMI output support Linux Mint 8 Helena

Postby christastrophe on Thu Feb 11, 2010 5:36 pm

Currently I am using Windows 7, but only as a last resort. I use the blu-ray reader quite often with HDMI output. I love Linux but am wondering if the new version supports bluray playback as well as hdmi video output. Also, if it does, what kind of resolutions can i expect to get from the O.S.? If it does not support these features, are there any linux based O.S' that do? I run a sony vaio fw455d, 4 gb ram, 2.1Ghz Intel Core Duo, MATSHITA Blu-ray Disc-CMB....if any of that helps. Thanks Alot! PS - New to Linux

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
