Bakcground: For a fairly long time, I've been using MyMovies (paid version) and AnyDVDHD to rip DVDs and Blu-Rays to my Windows Home Server. I've been using MyMovies (for windows media center) and PowerDVD 12 since V1905 and recently, I've found myself faced with the Cinavia block with recent movies I've purchased.
My HTPC is currently connected, via HDMI to a Yamaha 7.1CH receiver which is in turn connected to a Mitsubishi HC4000 projector. I rip movies by simply placing them in my WHS Blu-Ray drive, and my current steps for playing the blu-ray involve:
Within Windows Media Center, Open MyMovies->Select Movie->Select Play->Confirm refresh rate adjustment->Cancel previews->In Blu-Ray menu-> select 'play movie'.
I'm looking for non-commercial player software (or combination of products) that can replace PowerDVD and meet the following criteria:
1. Playback of mounted ISO discs (that have been decrypted)
2. Full 1080P playback (with GPU acceleration and refresh rate switching)
3. Bitstream Audio to the Yamaha receiver
4. A simple playback initiation (no more complex than what I'm already doing)
5. Subtitle support for foreign films/anime
3D playback isn't important to me at this time, nor do I care to retain menu functionality. A very small portion of my Blu-Rays are foreign so, I'd be willing to process those discs (i.e. for sub-titles) separately.
If #1 is not possible, What is the simplest (and least time consuming) method for me to convert my existing ISO library to the necessary file format/container?
