 I'd like to mention that there is also thing called BD5/BD9 which is
basically BD on a DVD5/DVD9 media. On forum.doom9.org there is huge thread
regarding tsmuxer tool that among others can transform MKV to BD:


This tsmuxer is closed source app developed by SmartLabs and there is native
linux (and MacOS) version too (there is even opensource gui for that):


On forum.doom9.org there is one more tool that is kind of interesting for
me called MultiAVCHD:


On a side note what is current status of m2ts/ts embedded subtitles?

I've been toying with tsmuxer and subtitles but have not found way to
actually see subtitles with ffplay and/or mplayer.

Oh! And there is also tsReMux somewhere on forum.doom9.org (with C# sources)
but i cannot find the url at the moment.
