A friend lent me a blu-ray copy of 'Cabin In The Woods' horror movie, When trying to play it using AnyDVD and MPC, the playback order was scrambled.
Turns out there is a type of content protection where dodgy playlists are added. You have to use 'Navigate, Jump To' and try to pick the correct .mpls entry. Either take an educated guess ( shortest over an hour ) or look for a forum post.
I also decided to try some commercial alternatives: - PowerDVD 13 trial required registration, interface was more horrifying than the movie. - WinDVD 11 trial required registration, puts you on mailing list, tries to install a toolbar. - ArcSoft TotalMedia 5 trial, no registration, more than just a player, but I liked it.
None of them would play over my wireless HDMI link or if I was remotely connected, and would to disable aero during playback. So I will be sticking with AnyDVD.
Updated the code to the latest Joomla XML / OOP / design requirements. The new version has been tested as working on Joomla 2.5 and 3.0.
I also submitted a new entry to the Joomla directory listing, but there are so many commercial, crappy, and malicious submissions, there is a months worth of backlog while a few JED volunteers test each one to make sure they are OK.
LGSL may not even pass as they ask for a Joomla loaded check in every PHP file, which is not practical for me to maintain as a lot of the code is a cross CMS library.
We will see if common sense prevails, but I have nothing to lose or gain from it
