Good afternoon folks,

I am interested in using BD-J to do online video streaming like Netflix. Progressive playlist and javax.media.protocol.URLDataSource are technical approaches I am considering. I just received a Netflix Blu-Ray Disk for PS3 and it does the same thing I want to do. However it only works on PS3. My questions are:

1. If Netflix Blu-Ray Disk for PS3 is BD-J, why does it only play on PS3 but not other players? I tried to play it on my LG BD370 but it did not work.

2. What are the tradeoffs between Progressive playlist and javax.media.protocol.URLDataSource? Do you think both are valid approaches?

Thanks a lot in advance. Any ideas, comments and suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Jeff

Hi,

i tried using javax.media.protocol.URLDatasource to create a player on it with the javax.media.Manager but it didn't worked. I always got a javax.media.NoPlayerException.

so it seems that a progressive playlist will be the only way.
