Playing an arbitrary video stream without a playlist?

Hi All!

I have yet another question. I'm making progress and really enjoying what I'm seeing so far. I'm chewing through the HD cookbook and other documentation and have come across a question:

Is it possible to play an arbitrary video stream on the disc WITHOUT a corresponding playlist being present in PLAYLIST? I'd like to use a BDLocator object to open, for example, "bd://STREAM:00001" and begin playback.

If that is possible, will Trick playback still be available?

I'm pouring over a LOT of documentation and any little help is appreciated. Thank you!

Nope, you need to have a PlayList.

Cheers,
Joe
