Tool for making a BDMV structure?

Hi,

Does anybody in this forum know about a low-cost software tool (somewhere in the order of $100) that can take some standard video files, say, captured from a HD camcorder, and make it into a BD structure, that one can start doing Java development on by modifying BDJO, swapping JAR entries and stuff?

I don't think such solution existed a year ago. Now that BD seems to have won over HD-DVD, wondering if there's something that a Java developer can possibly play around with.

Thanks,
Chihiro

Chihiro - have you tried tsMuxeR (http://www.smlabs.net/tsmuxer_en.html )? It's free and probably the most used tool to generate Blu-ray structure.

After I posted the message I realized that the question is rather old and may not need the answer :-)

Hi Vinay,

I've heard of tsMuxeR, after I've posted the initial question. Good to know it's useful.

Also, I had a job transfer and currently work at a different place from SunOracle, just like many others who are owning this hdcookbook project. I have access to a commercial disc creation tool if necessary. I'm sure that this info is still useful for those who want to experiment with BD-J, meanwhile...

Thanks,
Chihiro

Hi Chihiro,

Corel's DVD Movie Factory 6 Plus,
http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/us/en/Product/1174668369543 can create a BDMV structure and import from a HD cam for about $80. Not sure if this is what you are looking for.

Cheers,

Denny B.

Thanks, Denny. Colwin from Corel also told me about DVD MovieFactory 6, and that the BD output is enabled for the purchased version, but not on the trial version. I guess this will be one solution for those who want to experiment with BD-J at home!

Best,
Chihiro

Hi!

So, by using DVD MovieFactory 6 one can make a BDMV structure and then include a BD-J application inside?
Actually I'm interested in making a BD-J application for PS3 whose objective is to show on the screen a jmf player reproducing a .mp4 video file in a scene container. However I'm not able to create a PLAYLIST to access my video contents. Is it possible with DVD MovieFactory 6? I mean, does this soft create by itself the PLAYLIST (.mpls) and STREAM (.m2ts) sub-directories of BDMV structure that I need to further access my video files through a BDLocator in my bd-j application? Do I need something more to access video contents through a playlist?
I would be very grateful if you could help my with that issue :-)
Thanks.

I don't know about DVD MovieFactory 6 in particular, but I've made a HDMV structure in the past using a similar tool, and then manually updated playlist file using hdcookbook's playlist (converts the playlist to xml and back) to suit my BD-J app's need. You'll probably need a BD spec to understand playlist structure. Looking at some of the sample apps in hdcookbook that uses playlist may help you too.

Best,
