Hello,
I have been trying out the HD Cookbook Progressive Playlist Xlet and it works fine on a PS3, a Panasonic BD60, and Corel WinDvd 2010.
However on a Samsung (BD-C6500T) bluray player, the Xlet fails with the following exception: "Exception in playback: org.bluray.media.InvalidPlayListException"
Can anyone confirm if it is possible to run the HD Cookbook Progressive Playlist sample on a Samsung bluray player, and what changes (if any) are required to do so?

Best regards,
Daren

Hi Daren,
I hear that Samsung players do not allow the apps on BD-R/BD-RE to use the BDLive features, and that the VFS Update is likely to fail when the app is from BD-R/RE. Thus, I won't be surprised if the ProgressivePlayList example disc also doesn't perform right on Samsungs....

Thanks Chihiro for clearing that up for me.

I was worried there was something we were missing on the Samsung players, but it just sounds like extra security.

So if I was really interested in running the cookbook ProgressivePlaylist sample on Samsung players, can you briefly describe what would I have to do?

I assume I would need to sign up with the BDA, get a special orgId, and keys, and then contact a 'certified' manufacturer of blu ray discs and send them the progresiveplaylist sample jar or codes along with my orgId and keys, and then they would burn a 'real' AACS encrypted BD, which would then work as I expected on a Samsung?

Best regards,
Daren

Hi Daren,

I don't know the entire procedure of making a BD-ROM disc, but I don't think you need AACS; probably just make a cutting master format of your disc and ask someone to make it into a disc?

In any case, for testing Samsung players, I've been using a BD-ROM disc that contains an bootloader application. The bootleader pulls the target app from the net and does a VFS Update.

Hello Chihiro,
Do you know if the bootloader image you are using is publically available, and where I can get it if so?
