[Harjit mohr] "the chapters do not work on some blurry players."
Update the firmware on the Blu-ray players that don't work. That's the headache with Blu-ray... you can buy a disc from a store and it won't play unless you upgrade you player firmware. It's really annoying. So if it works in some players then it's not FCP X... it's more that likely the firmware in the players that don't work. Check the manufacturer's web site for updates.

[John Rofrano] "So if it works in some players then it's not FCP X..."

Erm... no, actually it IS FCP X's fault. It unfortunately just plain ignores chapters when outputting to BD. No idea why. It only burns BDs with generic chapters IIRC every minute or five, so custom chapters shouldn't work in any player. Unless they changed something very recently, which I doubt.

I have no way of testing, since optical media of any sort hasn't been part of my repertoire for over an easy 5 years.

If you need specific chapters, you'll need to use something like Toast.

I just burned a Blu-ray a couple of days ago with FCPX 10.1.4. It was 25 minutes long, with six custom chapter markers. It worked perfectly on the one Blu-ray player I tested it on.

Yea, I was going to burn one to test this out myself but thanks for confirming that it works. I don't see why it wouldn't as long as you add Chapter markers in your video. I may still test this when I get a chance.

My bad then. I guess it was changed at some point since I last tried it. Which admittedly was a loooong time (i.e. many versions) ago. But from what I gather, the poster frames are still ignored. Like I said, optical media hasn't been in my life for ages anymore, so I have no way of checking.
