Today we take the first step towards a free software Blu-ray creation toolkit.

Thanks to tireless work by Kieran Kunyha, Alex Giladi, Lamont Alston, and the Doom9 crowd, x264 can now produce Blu-ray-compliant video. Extra special thanks to The Criterion Collection for sponsoring the final compliance test to confirm x264ís Blu-ray compliance.

With x264ís powerful compression, as demonstrated by the incredibly popular BD-Rebuilder Blu-ray backup software, itís quite possible to author Blu-ray disks on DVD9s (dual-layer DVDs) or even DVD5s (single-layer DVDs) with a reasonable level of quality. With a free software encoder and less need for an expensive Blu-ray burner, we are one step closer to putting HD optical media creation in the hands of the everyday user.

To celebrate this achievement, we are making available for download a demo Blu-ray encoded with x264, containing entirely free content!
