Open-Source Blu-Ray Library Now Supports BD-J Java 94

An anonymous reader writes: Updates to the open-source libbluray, libaacs, and libbdplus libraries have improved the open-source Blu-ray disc support to now enable the Blu-ray Java interactivity layer (BD-J). The Blu-ray Java code is in turn executed by OpenJDK or the Oracle JDK and is working well enough to play a Blu-ray disc on the Raspberry Pi when paired with the VLC media player."

    Does anyone have any scenarios where BD-Java enables a useful feature?

    I have to admit for all the blue ray disks I have, the included menus and bumf just makes it a less pleasant experience.

    I don't know who builds in the code for these 'features' - but it makes it very difficult to justify buying legitimate media when the studios seem to put all their crapware in the way.
