Believe me, those menus can't be played on any 3d media player out there. This is the reality from day one. All you can get is bdlite support and if you want full menu support you are limited to a 2d players.
If I remember correctly there's only one player able to do 3d and menus which is a pioneer player but with huge limitations and a homebrew firmware.
I don't fully understand the difference between the various BD menu structures, and whether or not they coincide with the BD profiles. For me, I was primarily interested in the 3D capabilities of a media player, and the Mede8er fit the bill. The fact that it had full BD menu support, which I assumed based upon www.iboum.com
, was icing on the cake.
I bought the Mede8er primarily to stream 3D MKV titles to watch on my 3D Panasonic plasma. It is great having easy access to the 3D movies I own. Outside of the 3D Blu-ray movies, the only BD discs I am streaming are the reference discs created by AVS members ScubaSteve, SuperLeo, and Jindrak. The remainder of my streaming movie collection is stored as ripped DVD's (Video TS) for the kids to watch on the Mede8er and the old Netgear NeoTV 550. If we are going to watch a movie in the theater (no 3D-capable projector yet), I put the Blu-ray (owned or rental disc) in the player.
