    I recently bought a Bluray player. Samsung P1590.

    I don't have a Bluray burner.

    My understanding is that I can create high def content and display it on my Bluray player via DVD media. Limited to under to about 30 minutes, I think.

    How do I do it? what is the work flow?

    Use QuickTime to make a H.264 file and burn that onto a DVD data disk?
    Has anyone done this?

    Any help/pointers is appreciated.

    If you search you can find a thread like this...the thread links to a YouTube tutorial.

    From what I recall, you need Roxio Toast. You would take your HD footage (AVCHD or H.264) and burn it in Toast as a Blu-Ray disc set to a DVD.

    And like you already know, you should only get 20-30 minutes per disc.

    I always wanted to do this but I don't have a Blu-Ray.

    Im glad I found this thread.. I had never know you could do this.
    Would save me a work around trying to burn blu-rays on something other than my Mac.

    besides Toast, the Share function in FCP7 will do this as well.

    Do all players (hardware) support this feature?
    Or is this something not restricted to a Blu-Ray player?

    What is the most cost effective route?

    FCP7 is, I think the most expensive. What about FCE?

    Toast 10 or 10 Pro. Toast 10 is $80 + $20 for Bluray plugin = $100.
    10 Pro is $130 include programs (I have a couple like Fotomagico).

    Other options?

    As I've heard it, all BD players should support it as it is part of the BD specs. Not all do but apparently that is getting better.

    I'm not sure what you mean by your second question.

    Toast 10 with the Bluray add-on is the most cost effective solution.

    FCP7 has BD burning as an option. This option is not part of or available for FCE or iMovie.

    Another option is Adobe Premiere with its DVD/BD tools.
