When I insert 'The Smurfs' Blu-ray disc the following message is displayed.

[Show spoiler]x Don't ask me again


So, I click on the 'OK button'.

Then I get (in capital letters):



(Note that the 'YES' is checked.)
I click on the 'YES button' but it is inactive. No response.


The Panel with

Play Movie | Languages Scene Selection | Special Features | Get Now on BD-Live

is inaccessible. - It's visible behind a thick veil. - I cannot click on anything.

The Control Panel with Play/Pause, Fast Forward, etc is inaccessible either -
it's visible behind a thick veil and I cannot click on anything except for:

Eject Button (which ejects the Blu-ray disc),
and Title Menu, Top Menu (I can click on them), but they do nothing.


I can also resize the Blu-ray window, and access Help and Read Me and Settings.

But the Settings do not have anything related to BD-Live.
Here are some settings:
Blu-ray Region
Dolby DRC
Dual Mono
Blu-ray Parent Control


On top of that I have two questions.

1. Is there any free Blu-ray Disc player which would play 'The Smurfs'?
2. Is there any Blu-ray Disc version of 'The Smurfs' without the BD-Live?



I've also found this in the manual:

"Resume play function cannot be used with BD-J title."
What software player came with your Toshiba? Is it a Toshiba application or a third-party application?

Thanks again.

It is the Toshiba Blu-ray Disc Player Version:

From the Blu-ray Disc Player User Manual

"5.4 BONUSVIEW and BD-Live

BONUSVIEW and BD-Live are supported by this Blu-ray Disc Player.
From the menu embedded in title you can watch these kinds of content.

Note: This function may have problem by situation of network connection or content."


From Read me

1. Using the Player
3. 3D Playback Feature
9. Legal Notice
Manufactured under license under US Patent ....
10. Free Software End User License Agreement
10.1 No Warranty
10.2 Software modules which are used in this software




Please refer to for the software listed above.




By the way, if I try playing ' Smurfs' Blu-ray disc without connecting to the Internet the situation is the same as described in my previous post.
On top of that the following (button) pops up:

Get Connected
