The simple answer is no, just like I said. The popcorn hour will never play a blu-ray rip, full menu support and BDLive just like his HTPC.
And no it won't even play all blu-ray m2ts files when just ripped simply because it has no way of handling the seamless branching on certain blu-rays without remuxing.
As I recommended the new mythical dune player is suppose to have support for blu-ray rips as a folder structure or an iso.
Jeff, I'll speak for myself, and say mostly
I was disagreeing with how the OP worded his post. As I've already dissected, the OP asks will PCH play files
...no mention of full menu support, etc...without re-encoding. And the answer is of course that is exactly what it does.
As for your
response, I do have a little bit of a problem when users oversimplify
their answers. If my question is "will the PCH play simple rips, straight from AnyDVD HD, without all that re-encoding bs"...do you really think your answer should be a straight and simple NO
, because seamless branching is the exception? I mean what are we talking, 50 titles out of 5,000?
To me, and this is just my opinion, whenever someone sort of oversimplifies, or overstates like that, they're trying to erroneously sway perception of said product. But I'm not looking to start an argument.
