  2. Blueray disk ultra HD doesn't play, is this ok ? (Xbox)


    What does your question have to do with Microsoft Products?

    You bought a Ultra HD TV and a Blue-ray Ultra HD Movie to play on it.

    my computer isnt detecting blu ray discs

    Windows 10 doesn't play Blu-Ray discs. You'll have to buy separate software to play Blu-ray on Windows 10. There is a way to play for free, but it's not easy:

    Spinning media is dead... or soon will be... I'd much rather just have a 128GB flash drive.

    That'll be here soon enough even 256GB is only a couple of years away.(Remember Moore's Law*Smile).

  7. Write-once optical media won't get overwritten with malware (once it's been finalised).

    Apparently you can buy read-only-lockable USB sticks, but I've never seen one advertised and I've never seen any in stores (here in Australia).

    There are lockable USB sticks that have a switch on them (SD cards too) to lock it into read-only mode. However, the point being that if a big movie studio is distributing a 100GB movie, they can produce Write-once USB sticks that have no switch. Or they might even be ROM's and not flash at all, or have a small amount of rewriteable flash to allow things like feature keys and what not to be installed.

    Regardless, spinning media has too many limitations. They can scratch, get warped in heat, limited size... then you need much more complex equipment to play it back, and it has moving parts that fail. And, a disk takes up a lot more room than a USB key, so it costs more to ship, package, and takes up more warehouse space.

    I for one won't buy DVD's anymore. I only buy digital downloads.

    Hi there

    Sorry Brink / Shawn

    I appreciate your posts and assistance / tutorials etc but IMO Physical media is as DEAD as the dodo for things like Multi-media -- with fast Internet these days (and even if you don't have it NOW most people WILL have it soon enough) even a 4K HD movie won't take long to download / stream over the net.

    Who needs physical players any more (apart from playing old legacy DVD's etc). Even if you don't have a smart TV those USB sticks with things like Amazon TV make streaming from the net a doddle.

    I actually HAVE a Blu ray player --guess what - I've NEVER even played a SINGLE blu ray DVD in it -- I've just used MEZZMO to stream Blu ray quality HD to the device and play it into a TV.

    Finally you also don't get those stupid regional limitations or DRM crud when streaming over the net either (or at least it's easily removed). Physical spinning media is just too much hassle these days - especially when the latest micro sdHC cards are projected to soon have capacities of 128 / 256 GB soon - so there's nothing to stop downloads to a mobile phone and then stream to a decent TV at full 4K HD quality.

  10. Off course it is. I would rather have the media in my sweaty paw so I can do what I want with it. Digital file delivery is OK for instant gratification but I like the media hard copy. Amazon is great in this respect by providing a RIP till the CD arrives so I can them RIP it to FLAC.

  11. Depends if you consider 10+ years to be soon.
    Here in Australia, it's going to be a very long time before the majority of users will be able to stream 2160p.

    The current LNP government is going out of its way to make sure that we never get optical fibre to the home (simply because the previous Labor government tried to introduce it).

    We've only got Netflix a couple of months ago and apparently the national network is already clogged.

    Here in Australia I've never heard of a mobile plan with 256 GB of data per month.

    Our Internet package (landline) includes 200 GB of data per month, but the maximum speed is 6 Mb/s (and it usually seems to be a lot less than that).
    lehnerus2000, May 14, 2015
  12. The same in many parts of the UK (outside the towns/cities), where I am the max speed is 2 Mb/s (on a very good day), we do get unlimited, but with these speeds its annoying to even download SD, never mind anything higher

    It will be a sad day if physical media dies anytime soon

    Downloading the W10TP upgrades is quite annoying.

    So why do it, Is someone twisting your arm? Downloading updates is great for me, it gives me something new to look forward to.

    There are a few JB HiFi stores around where I live, I can assure you physical media is not going to die in the near future, it's amazing the amount of people still buying it.
