I wanted to play around with blu-ray development a bit, but I'm not sure exactly where to get started. I have looked at the java.net hd cookbook project, but I am still pretty lost as to what I need to do.
Do I need a blu-ray burner to start with (I hope not), or can I get away with a simple dvd writer?
Initially, I would like to get a simple 'Hello World' type of app up and running, then move onto playing videos, and finally, playing a video off of the internet.
If there are any available, could someone point me to any tutorials or examples of ramping up with blu-ray development?
