This plugin will override the default player when selecting a Bluray movie or ISO from the default Videos plugin in NextPVR.

When selecting an ISO, a popup will be displayed until the ISO has been mounted (ignoring the <DaemonToolsDelay> setting in config.xml) and then the appropriate player will be launched. If the ISO is a DVD, it will play via the default DVD player once the ISO is mounted. If the ISO or selected video is a Bluray movie, it will be played via this plugin which utilizes a special build of the dslibbluray project. The main difference between this build and the original project is that UOPs are ignored. There are also some changes to the IBDNav interface to make NextPVR plugin integration easier.

Requirements

EVR: This is the only video renderer supported at the moment.

AnyDVD HD. Encrypted movies are not supported.

For java discs/menus, you need Java (any version 5-7 should work. Version 8 is not supported): http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=86895

DaemonTools or Virtual Clone Drive for ISOs.

Recommended AnyDVD HD settings

Video Bluray

"Enable Blu-ray support" checked (required).

All other settings in this screen are optional. "Remove prohibited user operations" is not required as this build of dslibbluray ignores UOPs anyway.

Video Bluray -> Speedmenu

"Enabled with Java discs" selected. All HDMV menus should work but there are some Java discs that may not work properly.

"Keep original menu" checked. You can select "Original menu" from the Speedmenu once playback starts. If there is an issue playing the original Java menu, stop/restart playback and launch the movie from the Speedmenu selections.
