I agree that the project should be kept alive, at least someone might try recompiling it at a later date. Sound is dicey, bssut who knows?? Maybe Mpxplay code?

Sherpya's binary r32848 seems to support Blu-Ray playback through libbluray. How neat would it be for us stalwart DOS users to get that possibilty through a new DJGPP port? But first we would need a working UDF 2.5 driver, right? Well, I guess Blu-Ray in DOS will be pretty hard to accomplish... We would need an extremely fast PC (no 2D-hardware acceleration exists for newer cards in DOS!), a UDF 2.5 driver, AND libbluray ported to DJGPP in Mplayer! Not to mention the 2 Gb / 4 GB limit would need to be overcome, but UDF does "do away" with it, at least when talking about raw sectors on optical discs.
