Overview

Media Center supports playback and ripping of Blu-ray.

Requirements

To convert Blu-ray to a format usable by a computer, a Blu-ray reader is required.

AnyDVD HD or DVDFab Passkey are both good options.

Playback

Insert a disc and the program will offer to play it.

You can also import blu-ray rips and play them.

Media Center 17 adds title selection so you can play trailers, extras, and more.

Ripping

You can rip Blu-ray using Action Window > Rip Disc inside the program.

Decoding for DTS-HD

MC supports the option to both decode on the PC at full bit rate and depth (default) or bitstream, though to enable this for DTS-HD you need to just copy the "dtsdecoderdll.dll" from an installation of Arcsoft TMT installation to any of the following folders so it can be used (eg where LAVAudio can find it):

  • C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\J River\Media Center 17\Plugins\lav, or
  • C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\J River\Media Center 17, or
  • Windows\System32 folder for Windows 7 32-bit / Windows\SysWOW64 folder for Windows 7 64 bit

More Information

Please see Matt's description of Blu-ray support in MC16. MC 16 can play Blu-ray discs or rips.

Blu-ray support requires AnyDVD HD or equivalent to read the disc.

For older versions, please read these threads:

Mojave on audio mixing for Blu-ray: JRiver does anything AC3Filter does, but better.

JRiver does everything in its 64-bit audio path and makes sure that the highest quality is maintained. I removed AC3Filter a long time ago.

Go to Player > DSP Studio and make sure the Output Format is set to whatever you need. That is where you set the number of channels. The JRSS mixing is a very high quality matrixing system that I think is better than Dolby ProLogic IIx. If you want to use a subwoofer and bass management, set the Subwoofer to Silent in Output Format and use the Room Correction DSP for advanced Bass Management. You also set the speaker distances and levels in Room Correction. The DSP has to be checked in order for it to be active. http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=66593.msg446939#msg446939
