Why is the disc name on a blu ray disc not showing up in my player?

Oct 26, 2012 11:12 PM

I set the name of the disc in Encore with the name of my program and then the Blu-Ray player just shows BD-R disc.  I know that I have seen blu-ray players, specifically mine, show the name of the disc when using professionally made discs.  Is there a way to get this all working with Encore?

 

 

Using latest CS6 with updates.

    Encore only allows the Disk Name for DVDs, not Blu-rays.

    You can set a disk name for BD.

    It does not show on my standalone because it does not have enough display digits,

    but it does show on my softwareplayer on my pc.

    Encor doesn't even allow you to set a disk name for Blu-ray.  (At least, CS6 doesn't.)

    Try different players.

    I was looking everywhere, but this discussion gave me a clue:

     

    Set the format to DVD, enter the disc name, then change back to Blu-ray and Audition retains the title.

    A lot of set stop players will not display the title.  Even hollywood discs on my sony BX profile 1

    player will show just a generic disc icon and the word BDMV.

     

    If you mean when inserted on a pc and seeing the "disc volume" then Ann's suggestion should work.

     

     

    Are you talking about how some discs are when viewed on ps3?

    It shows an icon (like a movie poster for example) and a title name.

    Only a few players and the ps3 do that.

     

    It's the BD equivalent of "Jacket Picture" and you CAN do it, but it

    requires you to build a folder out of Encore, then manually copy

    the contents to /META/DL in the encore build folder...then burn the disc from Toast or Nero.

     

    The /META/DL folder will contain 2, 8-bit transparency files in .png format

    one is this size (and named) 640x360.png the other 416x240.png and a text file

    named bdmt_eng.xml  (see below for its content)

     

    I do these on every disc I author.  Adds a nice professional touch.

     

    Here is the content of the xml file: (rename the DISC TITLE NAME HERE with your title)

     

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    <disclib xmlns="urn:BDA:bdmv;disclib" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="urn:BDA:bdmv;disclib disclib.xsd">

    <di:discinfo xmlns:di="urn:BDA:bdmv;discinfo">

    <di:title>

    <di:name>DISC TITLE NAME HERE</di:name>

    </di:title>

    <di:description>

    <di:thumbnail href="./640x360.png" size="640x360" />

    <di:thumbnail href="./416x240.png" size="416x240" />

    </di:description>

    </di:discinfo>

    </disclib>

    No, I’m saying that if you use Audtion to create a blu-ray disc, you can create a disc name by switching to the DVD burn mode, enter the disc name and then switch back to Blu-ray for your burn and it seems to retain the disc name information.  I tested it with a very long name “Amsterdam to Switzerland Cruise” and the Blu-ray burn advised that the disc name was too long – the only way to change it to a shorter name that I know is to go back to the DVD burn area and rename the disc title there.  When you look at the flowchart tab you will see the disc name at the start of the chart whether it is for Blu-ray or DVD but it is entered from the DVD burn window.

     

     

     

    This is independent of whether the player reads it or not.

    Yes, the “disc volume” you refer to is what you get with my method.  It is handy if you have 2 disk drives – you can see what disc is in each.
