    I think people really need to put "Non-DRM Blu-ray support" when talking about Blu-ray in Linux.

      MythTV is an amazing piece of software. It's a shame it uses FFMPEG instead of Gstreamer as a backend, making it impossible to legally distribute in the United States due to software patents.

        Why? Gstreamer doesn't have nearly as many codecs as FFMPEG, nor does it support the most common forms of hardware acceleration.

          I don't care about americas patent stupidity. ffmpeg is by far the best framework.

            Agreed. I live in America and I think that software patents are stupid, especially in Linux. There you have it.
            Anyway, I am looking forward to this release and thanks to the developers for their hard work!

              I, as an American, also agree: Software patents suck majorly.

                  Gstreamer can use ffmpeg as backend, and so far supports VDPAU and CrystalHD accelerations.

                    I was getting excited then, I wonder when full bluray support will be available on Linux without jiggery pokery

                    I remember the DeCSS stuff when it was new and being able to play DVDs on my PC easier under linux than I could on Windows at the time

                    How times have changed
