[tony west] "If there is such a huge market for it you shouldn't be having such a hard time finding plenty of people to make what your looking for.


Not necessarily, because software development isn't a generic practice. My guess is that the skills needed to make deep, highly functional disk authoring applications aren't that common... and probably expensive because of that. Even at the height of the DVD revolution, there weren't very many applications (maybe less than 5) that could do more than rudimentary menu creation and image mastering... and maybe only two or three that you could consider high-end (scripting, specialized encoding engine, workgroup functionality, etc.). It's sort of like the market for 3D rendering software... lot's of potential customers, not very many developers.

Question back to you Tony, if the market for disk based media is shrinking so rapidly, how is it that DVD and blu-ray titles are so ubiquitous in retail?


EDIT: That last bit may have come off a little snarky... didn't mean it that way. Just posing an honest question. :-)
