Question

So I hear that we can burn Blu-ray But Will It Play in a consumer player???java script:emoticon(':)',%20'smid_8') I am getting very frustrated with putting HD MPEGII compliant files into Mac Applications and not have the app understand Blu-ray for my 1080p big screen. I have been watching HD on my computer for many years. Now I want to watch it on a Blu-ray consumer player. ANYBODY had any luck with any MAC apps?? Does Toast8 properly write UDF 2.5 so a player can read it?java script:emoticon(':huh:',%20'smid_13')java script:emoticon(':D',%20'smid_18')

It does have full BD support. It supports all BD drives and all the media types.

 

It doesn't write BDAV or BDMV (Unless you have a pre-authored image). That isn't support, that's a file format. And even if BDAV was supported, it would not play well, if at all, on the current BD players. And never on the Mac.

Seems like semantics to me. The primary reason Blu-Ray Disc was developed was for mass production of high definition movies. The header on the official site for the Blu-Ray Disc Association says:

 

Beyond High Definition

1080P Resolution 7.1 Surround 50GB of Storage

 

 

Storage looks like an afterthought. I don't care whether the Mac will play Blu-Ray movies. I want to author them. And Toast does offer DVD authoring. So saying Toast has full support for Blu-Ray disc, when all it will do is write data, still strikes me as misleading.

My sentiments EXACTLY... After getting absolutely NOWHERE with TOAST, I have since purchased ULEAD DVD MovieFactory 6 for $80. It comes with BD DiscRecorder. I installed Bootcamp on my MACPRO along with a new copy of windows. Finally I was able to record BDAV directly from my SONY HDV camcorder (V1-U) and it played perfectly on my SAMSUNG 1200.

 

Having a little trouble doing it from a file, but I think it may be because I installed Windows and the apps on a 32GB FAT partition and, correct me if I am wrong, it has a 4GB file limit? My output from FCP was 15GB...

 

I am thinking I may have to re-install on a larger NTFS volume in order to get this done.

 

The amount of smoke being blown around by manufacturers about Blu_Ray being available and useable now is VERY misleading, IMHO...
