Hello everyone,

After the phoronix interview [1] that we indulged after the release last 
week, it seems there is a fair amount of interest in FFmpeg supporting 
Blu Ray decoding.

I have received a private e-mail asking if we would be interested in a 
donation of a Blu Ray drive. I would also request some Blu Ray media for 
testing purposes if the donor could afford it. Aside from this private 
e-mail, a few other people have expressed an interest in making 
donations to enable such support.

I expect we would not try to implement some AACS decryption, but only 
support decoding of non-encrypted streams. Is anyone interested in 
receiving this donation to work on Blu Ray support?

Best regards,
