Sorry but this makes no sense to me. If you say LMCE does not and will not support blu-ray it is even drawing more attention. Since then you force people who want to play HD to download the contents (if they want to stick to lmce as the playback device). And anno 2012 if you install lmce you are using state of the art home solution you are not gonna settle for SD.
Agree 100% except that LMCE seems to want to shift the risk to the end user - whether the user chooses to download their HD content, or come up with their own solution for playing encrypted bluray.
As far as I can tell, bluray has nearly been a complete flop, the future is in streamed and/or downloaded media, and internet bandwidth is only going up. I don't like giving the MAFIAA a victory as much as the next guy, but this is one battle I'd be willing to give in on for the sake of the war at large.
Besides, if someone comes up with a solution for patching in bluray support to the project, and documented it on their own website, it's unlikely that the LMCE team would or could do much about it.
