[WINDOWS] Blu-ray playback support in XBMC for Windows? Menus and AACS/BD+ decryption - Djsnake - 2008-08-24 20:53
Will ever XBMC for Win will playback Blu Ray and hd-dvd discs?
I mean with a bluray/hddvd pc drive like LG one.
Sorry for the noob question!

well its not even supported in linux period so its unlikely.

Could it work technically??
Or are there that block implementation of Blue-Ray playback.
XBMC for Windows will get it when XBMC for Linux and XBMC for Mac does and vice versa - Gamester17 - 2008-08-25 16:05

AS XBMC is a cross-platform software all the same things apply.

So any chance XBMC under Linux/OSX/WinPC will be able to detect a Blu-ray/HD-DVD disc and launch an assigned external player application like it did for the Dongle Free DVD player on the XBox?

"The AACS 'Digital Rights Management' system in most HD-DVD and all Blu-Ray discs attempts to stop consumers from exercising fair use rights, including:
* Playing purchased Blu-Ray and HD DVD films using Open Source software."
But this sh*t isn't the same for DVDs... why blu rays and hd-dvd are so "legally unplayable" by free soft?
