LastButNotLeast and superleo present a BD9 (a DVD-DL that can be read by most BD players) that is a compilation of selections from AVS BD demo discs that were chosen by AVS members as being the "best of" those discs.

In other words, here is about 35 minutes of material that will demonstrate/test your audio-video system to the max. :D

The selections, conveniently listed on a downloadable BD case cover:

 

 

The torrent is not compressed in any way, so it will download as a standard BD folder and should burn to a DVD-DL directly.

Excellent directions, including modifications that may be necessary for playback on a PS3, are available here:

post #2

 

 

The zipped torrent file is:
 

Best of Disc.torrent.zip 22k .zip file

 

Download that file, unzip it, and open the resultant file with uTorrent or the downloader of your choice.

And please, as a courtesy to others, continue to seed. ;)

 

Leo was also kind enough to make a disc label:

 

 

and fan art:

 

 

 

My sincere thanks to superleo for all his hard work with Scenarist. To him goes the credit for the excellent menu system and graphics. I'll accept most of the blame for anything that doesn't work. :o

 

Enjoy.

Michael

"Download, un-Zip, and double click NZB to launch your newsreader client. If you have no idea what this file is, use the alternative "torrent" download method (or you can google "how to use newsgroups with newbin files" or the like.) It is not something you will learn in half an hour and usually a paid subscription is required anyway."

This might be a dumb question, but here it is. I usually burn image files and not files like this. What is the best way to burn this? As a data disk with nero??

It is not that complicated really. You should give it a try. The disc is design to fit into a DVD DL disc, so you could go to Radio Shack, Best Buy, Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Target, Walmart, etc and just buy some DVD DL discs.

Follow the instructions from the link at the top of the thread... if you have questions just ask them here.

Download the disc, once you complete the download all the clips are under the STREAMS folder. You can copy and/or rename those to wherever you need them.

No dumb question, if you are wondering I'm sure there are others wondering the same thing.
This is NOT a data disc, it is a video disc. If you are using Nero make sure that the UDF is 2.5. I haven't use Nero for burning in the longest time so I couldn't help you more than that. You could try Imgeburn, it's free and we know for sure it works.

Just make sure you scroll down to the "News" section for the download link; lots of the other "click here" arrows are junk.

I've used image burn before for images but not these type of files. Tried to burn it with imageburn and ended up with a coaster...just what I wanted to avoid. I guess I will have to goole it to find a step by step, to avoid anymore wasted disk. After burning I received the dreaded Cannot play back this disk error.

UDF 2.5 is the most important setting.

I guess I shouldn't keep promoting rewritables, but there's a reason.

Good luck.

Now that was really interesting. Thank you. That's what I love about this place: people are always trying/needing to do something someone else would never have considered. Here's what I've found.

 

First, I would suggest MakeMKV. It's much faster, though you need to process one file at a time (ie, load the index file so it knows what's on the disc, then select one title at a time). The other caveat is that you need to select (if you want it) the high def audio:

 

 

Rename the resulting file (since the next one will default to the same name), and just work down the list. A couple don't work (00007 and 00013), for which you'll need to use handbrake. Again, you need to select the high def audio output:

 

 

For the video, you'll need to experiment depending on your output device. For me, the default of 20 was horrible; 18 was okay, 15 was great but probably overkill. There are other threads and arguments on that topic. Pick your poison.

 

I'm not set up for it, but I couldn't get iTunes to read the mkv files, so you might want to check that before you go through the rest of the trouble.

And, by all means, let us know!

Michael

Great disc, thank you

I don't understand the point of renaming it, but, since it worked, congratulations. ;)

You're welcome.

All The clips are an exact copy of the original Bluray, nothing has been changed or altered. If picture quality is not what you expected, your display needs to be calibrated or adjusted. Like I said these are the exact copy of the originals for high definition video and audio.

Nice work!

I couldn't get multiAVCHD to work right to convert it, so I just burned it as is. And it worked just fine on my PS3. I keep it up to date, so it's running what ever the latest firmware Sony put out. It's a mid-life box - not an early, but pre-slim. A CECHK01 - 3rd gen, Q3 2008, last full-size before the slims.
