I would like to use BD-Live to retrieve streaming video content and playlists from an Internet server (e.g. Network Solutions) using Profile 2 Blu-ray players. It is initially for an 8000 member church project for delivering church service videos.

Have a copy of Bill Foote's et.al "The HD Cookbook".

I am looking for a low-cost solution that includes authoring. Java programming is not an issue. Any and all suggestions or ideas would really be appreciated.

Hi dubke,

Not an answer to your question, but a related question of my own. Can this be done without the need for BD-Live. Can one easily have a xlet on a disc that can stream video/download video to local storage and play it using current APIs?

Hello Dekz,

Thanks for your thoughts. Writing my own xlet code from scratch, using the Eclipse IDE was my first thought, until I read about the "Authoring Environments" being required in the HD Cookbook.

Sonic has one that supports BD-Live but costs $20,000 (plus support) which is too costly at this point. My though has been that an Authoring System that supports BD-Live would be the best solution.

The part I do not understand is, after I write my own xlet, how do I write the disk so that the it is recognized and executed using a simple authoring environment such as Corel's VideoStudio Pro X3?
