I don't think VLC plays ISO files by itself... I believe you probably need DaemonTools or somesuch to mount the ISO before VLC could play it.

And that's a big IF on whether VLC can play BR material directly or not, never tried.

I have never been able to get VLC to play iso files directly. It will play the individual movie clips but not the whole iso.

I think, but not sure, VLC will play DVD iso files but it will not play BD iso files.

If you want to play ISOs in any of its flavors you can try Total Media Theater, it has a trial period and if you look around you can get for a lot less than direclty from their website.

TMT will play pretty much anything, and it does include All the codecs needed, audio and video for anything and everything.

1-VLC will not play BD iso's, but will play dvd iso's.
2-Neither will TMT, so he shouldn't use the iso, but play the files as downloaded.

What if the .ISO was mounted using something like daemontools? I didn't turn my downloads into an .ISO otherwise I would just test it. I played mine as files using both PowerDVD 10 and 11. I just opened PowerDVD and grabbed the whole BMDV folder and did a drag-and-drop of it right into the PowerDVD window and it worked perfectly.

I tried mounting an iso using virtual clone drive but could not get it to play. I think it is because I don't have the right codecs though.
post #127 of 1344
Yea, codecs are important. PowerDVD 10 only had the video codec and couldn't handle the HD audio or convert it to simple stereo. V11 had the codecs and did just fine with both video and audio...

I've used VLC to play regular DVD iso's for years with no issues.

VLC plays ISOs from regular DVDs fine. It will not play BR iso, but the rest play very well.

Download the trial of Arcsoft's TMT 5.

It plays blurays.

I just downloaded the first disc today. Took about 6 hours. I will be getting the 2nd disc tonight or tomorrow.

I also would like to say thanks for the time and effort that was put into this project.

Looking forward to trying it out.

I was wondering who I was serving the disc up to.

It appears vlc is going toward blu-ray playback. I had a trial of tmt a while back so I would have to buy it... I'm considering it but I will probably wait for the complete bluray of this demo disc

You can play the individual m2ts files with VLC.

Can anyone recommend a decent internal blu- ray burner? I have a reader in my HTPC but this seems like a good excuse to upgrade

Added the description and details of the clips for each segment at their respective posts (beginning of the thread).

I haven't had any problems with my LG burner. Stick with a major brand and buy whatever is on sale, and you'll likely be fine.

that looks awesome!

i am also running an HTPC with Media Browser. how do you get 7MC to play these files?

i have to run Blu-ray files separately using Total Media Theater
post #145 of 1344
I also use MediaBrowser for playing BRs. I have TMT setup as my default player for BRs. I then use Slysoft's VCD to mount them (it is free from slysoft). To get it to do it, you have to go to C:\\program data\\mediabrowser\\ and find the configuration file, called MediaBrowserXml.config. Look through it for a line referencing Daemon Tools Location. If you are using VCD, you will change the line to show this:

C:\\Program Files\\Elaborate Bytes\\VirtualCloneDrive\\VCDMount.exe

it is all one long line.

I have an empty "use external players" line and I have "true" for my "UseAutoPlayForIso" line.

For my panansonic Bdt-350 both discs a no go.
My Sony-370 stutter very bad.
On the Sony I tried the uncompressed files via the USB. The animation works file to file. The bass was a no go. I renamed the bass scenes(added an extra zero in the file name). I then dragged the renamed bass scenes, drug them over to the animation folder, about 1/2 of them worked!

Quick question: i can just play the clips on the ps3, right? Shouldn't be a problem?
(I don't have a burner)

Didn't play on mine. Played on my Oppo 93 though.

To be able to play the individual files on the PS3 the best way to do it is to convert/make the .m2ts files to .TS files.

TsMuxer can do that for you.

Seriously? You don't have a DVD burner, even? They're like $20, less if on sale. Just a little more if you need an external one for a laptop.

I understand that not everyone has a blu-ray burner (which cost under $90 at this point), but the whole point to this particular exercise is to allow those who don't have a BR burner to still enjoy demo material, else we'd all just use ScubaSteve's demo disc.
