The attached patch makes BD playback work for me. The proper fix should probably involve making the URL parsing more tolerant?

Here is an attempt at properly fixing this one. 1- The simplest solution is to remove the / at the end of the URL. However this is only a workaround, if the path defined in the video settings contains a / it will not work. The issue lie quite deep in ProgramInfo::GetPlaybackURL() and GetBasename?(). if the path contains a trailing '/' then it ends up trying to play an empty filename.

2-the BD player only works if you provide the actual path where the disk is physically mounted. Symbolic link to it do not work. This patch attempt to determine the real path before trying to play the BD disk

3- Allow launching the BD playback to an external player, sharing the same settings as DVD playback. The %d argument is replaced by bd:///path/to/mount (note use of a standard URI schema: name:// ; with patch # 2 extra path at the top are ignored anyway.

To come: fix the trailing / issue. This has unexpected consequences and is rather large.

Ultimately, transform the URI to use standard scheme, rather than just dvd: or dvd:/

# 1 and # 2 are in queue for 0.25 freeze.

# 3 and other later

In the new quilt patch archive: it now contains the proper fix for handling URI with trailing /

So even if the mounting point itself contains a / it will work also things like mythavtest bd:/mount/bluray/ will now play properly

patch 2: fix_symlink_bdmount.patch determine the real physical path of a path for bluray playback

path 3: fix BD and DVD playback when using a relative path.

so with patch 2 and 3, you can now do: mythavtest bd:./test where test is a link in the local directory to /media/bluray

patch 4: bd_external_player.patch , simplify the code for calling the external player on DVD and add support for external playback for BD (so for example, you can call a script that will unencrypt the disk with AnyDVD before playing it with mythavtest)

Note that bd: and dvd: path should really be bd:// and dvd:// and this will be fixed later as discussed on IRC

Fix bluray playback when path to bluray mountpoint contains a trailing /

Bluray playback started from either mythfrontend or mythavtest would fail if the path provided contained a trailing / (such as /media/cdrom0/). Issue lied with ProgramInfo::GetPlaybackURL() trying to find if the file was local. Now do not attempt any file path processing if the URI is for DVD or BD playback

Fix bluray playback if mounting path is a symbolic link

Some distributions (such as Ubuntu) symlink /media/cdrom0 to /media/cdrom. Decryption would fail if trying to play bd:/media/cdrom. We know determine the actual canonical path

Fix #10340 (part 2)
