This will be my first time to burn a Bluray and sadly enough it's not working correctly in my ps3. Here are my specs.
I have converted all files through compressor with the settings elementary stream mpeg 2 set to bluray and audio file Ac3 set to generic Ac3.
I also made a video for my menu which has the same settings as above.
I prepped encore to make Bluray disc, created a video menu by clicking the blank HD menu. Set the looped points and created buttons etc. The weird thing is that when I preview it the video doesn't play, it's like a still image, but I hear the music playing, the buttons work but video has changed to a still. I played the file in the timeline and it all played perfectly without a glitch. So, thinking that it might be just my computer I still burned with the film on the timeline and everything was set.
I played the file in a week old ps2 slim and it skipped and just froze as if the ps3 couldn't read the disc. I played a Bluray movie and it worked fine so it wasn't the ps3 or the laser.
I have a VERBATIM BD-R and a Mercury Pro Bluray disc burner. I've been looking in the net if its compatible with most BLuray player but I can't find the page. I contacted Verbatim and waiting for their reply regarding compatibility issues.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

First of all, Encore is sketchy. It freezes and hangs and never acts quite like it should. I would say your first thing to try is encoding using Adobe Media Encoder versus trying to do it in Compressor. From what I remember you can't use the "High" profile setting when encoding either... Google this and you'll find it's a problem that never got fixed.
Also, make sure you're not using LTH BD-R discs. It's a newer technology that may have more compatibility issues. See if you can make a BD-R that auto plays your content. After that you can determine if the issue is with the menus or your encoded content. Good luck!
Lastly, I have a Mercury Burner and a PS3 and I know that it works flawlessly. I payed a little more and got Sony white inkjet BD-R discs on a 50pk spindle, though cheapie Memorex from Target have worked for me as well, just a few more coasters.

I tried both things, through compressor via the instructions from adobe manual and through media encoder with low settings still didn't work, I thought it was the burner so I called tech support at OCW and we did a test through Toast 11 with Bluray plugin to burn DATA, that worked so it's not the burner.
Last chance, I build an image from encore using the compressor coded files, dropped that in Toast, burned and wala... IT WORKED PERFECTLY. Only problem was the image seemed to be slightly darker as if a gamma shift occurred during burning. Any experience on this?
Thanks for replying!
