BD ISO menus
« on: March 13, 2018, 10:48:44 am »
Hello,

I am not sure if I am posting this in the correct area, but here goes anyway.   :)

I have a MED1000X3D, and i like to play Blu-ray ISO files.

I am not able to see any of the BD menus when I play this ISO.

I could see when I searched this forum for this issue previously, that this feature is not supported, but I am wondering if there is, or will be, support for this now, or in the future.

Your advice would be appreciated.

Sanji cannot licence BD player code without an optical player built in, and DRM. They are using AVCHD camcorder code instead...with lots of limitations.

The limitations are:-
No java menus.
Pauses at segment boundaries
Refresh rate and 2d/3D decided by first first movie in ISO.

Most people end up ripping the 3D movies to a single segment MVC MKV. There is no loss in quality.

Hi jer1956,

Thanks for the extra information.

I trust that you are right about the lossless MKV ripping, but my main goal here is to be able to navigate to things like Special Features, which can have quite a lot of entertaining material in them.

Perhaps I can just browse for them manually?

Or, maybe I will end up looking for a player that has less limitations - not sure.

Thanks again.

1. When playing BDISO or BDMV files you can use the BD Light option to navigate the extra material. To do this press the 'Menu' button on the remote and select 'Playlist' from the menu and you will see a list of available files that you can play.

2. If you decide to use MakeMKV to rip the BDISO to mkv for the advantages already mentioned by jer1956 you can copy the main content mkv file to the main folder and in this folder make a new folder named 'EXTRAS' and copy the other mkv files into this. When you start the play from the info sheet 'about.jpg' you will see a dialogue window Play or Browse and if you select Browse you will be able to select a file to play in the EXTRAS folder.
