I read some time ago that Ubuntu doesn't support the burning of Blue Ray disks. Does 16.10 now support it? I've tried using kb3 but it displays a blank window; I've also tried some command line tools to no avail.
there are two aspects:
- Formatting Blu-ray content for entertainment video players.
This is indeed in bad shape, because nobody seems to be masochist enough to implement UDF 2.5 filesystem production. That's what the article shown by Terrance describes.
- Burning data to Blu-ray media.
This is known to work with GUI programs K3B and Xfburn. They can put readily formatted images onto BD-R and BD-RE media with one or more layer (25, 50, or 100 GB). They can also produce ISO 9660 filesystems for data storage.
Command line programs which can write to Blu-ray are: growisofs, cdrskin, cdrecord, xorriso. Assumed we have the data preformatted in file image.iso:
Not suitable is program wodim, even if it runs under the name "cdrecord".
growisofs -Z /dev/sr0=image.iso cdrskin -v dev=/dev/sr0 -eject image.iso cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 -eject image.iso xorriso -as cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 -eject image.iso
Have a nice day :)
