Raspberry Pi Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users and developers of hardware and software for Raspberry Pi. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I tried to play compressed .mkv and compressed .m2ts and it works perfectly with omxplayer. I am just curious to know if I overclock my Pi to run .m2ts straight from a Blu-ray so it will not be laggy.

I'm not sure I understand your question. What do you mean straight from a Bluray? –  Jivings Aug 7 '12 at 23:39

I think he means by not playing it off his SD card as ripped content but instead from his BlurayROM (most likely connected via USB)It seems reading of BlurayROM is choppy but playing from file not.. interesting.. –  ppumkin Aug 8 '12 at 9:07
    
Hi MrPackizz - welcome to Stack Exchange. What have you tried? Did you copy the .m2ts from a disk on another machine onto an SD Card? –  Alex Chamberlain Aug 8 '12 at 9:21

This is impossible to answer without further information. –  Jivings Aug 8 '12 at 23:05
    
I suppose there is a CSS-like encryption on Bluerays (as there were for DVDs). Maybe MrPackizz is referring to the difference in smoothness with and without encryption? –  Avio Sep 28 '12 at 15:49

I do not believe this is possible without the vid licences. Correct me if I am wrong, sorry.

According to Wikipedia, the encodings used by a Blu-Ray Disc are H.262/MPEG-2 Part 2, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, and VC-1. The RPi needs a licence to decode MPEG-2 and VC-1 only. MPEG-4 is already supported. –  Morgan Courbet Dec 28 '12 at 8:04

This should be a comment on the original question, and not an answer –  Werner Vesterås Sep 11 '13 at 19:20
    
Try air playing it somehow to the pi. Maybe get a sling box online. –  AwesomeUser Mar 9 at 20:34
