Blu-Ray on PC Video Demo
Back on Episode 116 of Entertainment 2.0 we were discussing watching Blu-ray movies on a PC versus watching them using a stand-alone player. James uses his PlayStation 3 as his Blu-ray player, and I’ve begun using my Windows Media Center PC for Blu-ray playback. James put forth the argument that there still isn’t a solution for watching our beloved high-definition discs on a computer that feels truly integrated, and offers a really great user experience. A listener who goes by Twitter handle VinylFreak was in the live chat for the show and didn’t agree with James at all. James challenged him to prove it, and so he did just that. VinylFreak created a video of his setup which incorporates ripped Blu-rays (as ISO files) along with ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre 5, My Movies 3, and, of course, Windows Media Center. The video displays a pretty compelling user experience. Check it out, and let VinylFreak know what you think! Thanks for putting the video together!
