    The Sony x700 read the 100gb bdxl discs, burned at x2 with the DVDFab burner. Not use imgburn. Use only the 2layer from the disc, setting 66gb. They played perfectly.

    In your case it will work for you and I will not discuss it, but I know more people who have Sony X700 and it doesnīt work. I did the test myself recording as you say and it didnīt work either, that is, it reads it but when it reaches the second layer stops.
    Today there is no method or player (except the vast majority of the Panasonic ub900) that makes the bdxl to 100%.

    I not know what to tell you, it works for me, I do not understand why it does not work for you. I use the verbatim 100gb disc. A suggestion when it stops at the pass to the second layer,
    go back manually and have it resume from the same position. Good luck.

  6. BDXL recorded in two and three layers is reproduced perfectly by my Panasonic UB900.
    I bought one and it recognizes all the discs without problems.

    The panasonic 820 no, the other two until they don`t come out and someone tries we can not know, in the official specifications it does not say that they can read bdxl.

  9. I wonder if the new Panasonic UB9000 can playback BDXL.

  10. Exactly what is the best and easiest way to compress material to a BD50 disc? I can see that many 4K UHD discs only have 50-60 GB data on them. I dont want to compress the bitrate on the video, but simply removing some of the many Audio-tracks should be possible?

    Yes it's possible, but just with the video-movie and only one audio-track, many of 4K BD-Disc will be more 50Gb...

  13. [This thread has been very helpful. I just joined to post here]. I bought an LG UBK80 thinking that it would handle BD-XL discs. At least 2 LG reps claimed that it could. It was only after the case was elevated that I was told that this was not true. Oh, well...
    I use a component driven A/V setup with a Roku Ultra for 4K streaming. I need a player that handles BD-XL discs [and everything else] that preferably does not have the streaming ability. My take on this is that it just drives up the cost. This is why I got the UBK80.
    What's the low price for such a player? Are there any out there now? Maybe more coming in the near future?

    How much does it cost?

    EDIT: I just looked at the support page at Panasonic online. It does not specify BD-XL? I tried to find a download link for a PDF that might expand on what is available at the web site. Can anyone else find this?
    EDIT2:I found the PDF download version of the manual. Once again, it does not specify BD-XL?
    EDIT3: One thing to test fully test for BD-XL is to see if the player can handle a disc that uses all 3 layers?

    Yeh. It is just strange that Panasonic is not advertising this? If there are not many other company's players that can do this and your player can do this, why not shout it to the roof tops?? I'm curious. I might call Panasonic when I have time and ask them specifically about this?
    Also, it would be nice to see what folks that have bought this have paid for it? Google Shopping suggests that is cost roughly $1000 USD.
    EDIT: Panasonic telephone support was a 20+m wait. After about a 15-20 minute wait for chat, all they would say is we don't sell this player in the US and that they only provide support/info about US sold players. This seems fairly restrictive? Maybe they don't want us poor US natives to have access? LOL Also, my guess is that this restriction probably drives up prices here in the US?

    BDXL playback is too inconsistent for them to claim support even if it is possible. If a player plays BDXL media at all, only some brands of BDXL media are playable and the compatible brands vary among UHD Blu-ray players.

    Then there is the matter of the content on those BD-XL discs. It's certainly legal to put media files from 4K cameras on BD-XL, but ripping and downloading are not legal from the Blue-ray Disc Association's perspective, and there is no official support from the BDA yet for authored UHD Blu-ray on burned media. As far as I can find out, the Blu-ray Disc Association hasn't even released a spec governing authored UHD Bu-ray on BD-XL or any other burned BD media yet, although it is supposed to be working on one.

    FACT: Streaming in the dominant distribution method. But, disc playback is usually regarded as better that it's streaming counterpart. 4K Ultra HD retail has been around for quite a while now. You would think that this issue would have been settled by the BDA already?

    In December 2017 I read a newsletter from Cyberlink which stated that the BDA was still working on a spec for burning authored UHD Blu-ray on BD media, and that Cyberlink wouldn't explore the feasibility of developing licensed consumer UHD Blu-ray authoring software until the BDA's spec for UHD Blu-ray authoring on burned BD media is released.

    PowerDirector 17 didn't include UHD Blu-ray authoring when it was released in September 2018, and there have been no further announcements on this subject. Maybe PowerDirector 18 will include UHD Blu-ray authoring, but that is far from certain at present.

    Between the cost of good BD-XL media and the current consumer preference for storing large video files on USB storage devices, BD-XL isn't popular with consumers now, and it may never become popular with consumers.

    "Authoring" in this context could refer to DVDfab, ImgBurn, Burnaware, etc.?

    ImgBurn and Burnaware aren't authoring software. They can only burn discs. Authoring creates the files and folders needed to produce to-spec DVD or Blu-ray or UHD Blu-ray discs which should be playable with a licensed hardware player. for those types of media. Some but not all authoring software also burns discs.

    DVDFab claims to have a UHD Blu-ray authoring program, DVDFab UHD Blu-ray Creator, but instead of following a spec, the software was reverse engineered by examining existing UHD Blu-ray discs. The discs it produces are playable, but because there is no spec for UHD Blu-ray on burned media yet, and the software hasn't been licensed or certified by the BDA, and can't create menus, DVDFab UHD Blu-ray Creator isn't a product that I'd be comfortable recommending as a solution for someone looking for a consumer UHD Blu-ray authoring program.

  26. [This might not be the right thread. But, DVDfab has been mentioned here...] http://blog.dvdfab.cn/cinavia-protection.html used to my source for Cinavia on DVD/Blu-Ray/UHD. But, it no longer seems to be updated? i.e. No entries for 2019 so far?
