My needs are simple:
- Play 1080p 24fps ripped Blu-ray content from ISO, folder structure, or MKV.
- Bitstream "core" and HD audio, including DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD.
- Have a reasonably user-friendly interface, that makes it easy to add sources and scroll through playlist. I don't require a flashy eye-candy interface. I'd rather have a basic usable interface, with development time spent on making the other requirements actually WORK.
- Handle subtitles (in ALL forms) flawlessly. And I mean FLAWLESSLY, just like a hardware BD player. Whether they're embedded in video, marked as forced, or however else subtitles are encoded, they should JUST WORK.
That's it. If I could find something that just does those things, and does them well, I'd be happy.
