Where does this play?
- BD5 is meant for playback on pc/popcorn/htpc/ps3/bluray-player
How does it work?
- For playback on pc simply extract and play the mkv in your favorite player.
another option is to create the bluray/image for playback with powerdvd.
- For playback on ps3/bluray-player run mkv2bluray.bat and chose B.
This will convert the mkv to bluray and create an image that will play
in the PS3 or a Bluray Player.
Hows the quality?
- Qualiy is to be considered the same as BluRay releases.
Why is BD5 undersized?
- The conversion to bluray takes up some 200-300MB space which is the bluray
overhead. Because of this the mkv is sligthly undersized.
Why doesnt everything get released as BD5?
- We dont know and there is no logical reason. However, as time goes on other
groups cannot continue to ignore the bluray community by stubbornly releasing
incompatible BluRay releases. Its like releasing DVDRs that dont run in
These types of releases are also meant to replace BluRay releases in archives.
DOWN is back with high quality bluray rips - watch out for more to come.
