    I'm not sure
    I don't think it will play commercial Blue Ray that require a method of decryption.

    I stand to be corrected and educated though

    There's an AACS decryption project out there that's licensed under the
    GPL, but it doesn't include a decryption key (naturally, as that would
    defeat the DRM).

    No, you're correct - there are ways to handle blu-ray content, but
    they're not very convenient or easy. I've been looking into this since I
    got my new laptop; I want to replace the DVD drive with a Blu-ray drive
    so when Ken takes his PS3 "on the road", we can watch our Blu-ray discs,
    but it seems it might be easier for us to get our own PS3 or for me to
    use a Windows-based program (the system's fast enough I could probably
    run it in VirtualBox - I do that to use Netflix when I want to stream
    without the PS3).
