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.

Never make anything simple and efficient when a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.

Working...
