x264 Project Announces Blu-ray Encoding Support

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 4 years ago


An anonymous reader writes "The x264 project has announced the first free software encoder to be able to generate Blu-ray compliant video. In addition, the announcement comes with a torrent of an x264-encoded Blu-ray disc containing entirely free content, such as the Open Movie Project videos. While there are still no free software Blu-ray authoring tools, hopefully this will change now that video and audio are taken care of so that everyone will be able to make their own Blu-rays without expensive proprietary software. Additionally, it seems the Criterion Collection is a friend of free software, having sponsored the effect to confirm x264's compliance with the Blu-ray spec."

First Free Blu-Ray Encoder (1)

This would be the first free blu-ray encoder. It's a pretty big step in creating a fully open source toolchain for film creation.
