Not to sure about Blu-ray to be honest as I'm almost certain that will be DRM and I'll not be able to do it (without getting into legal issues).

CD audio should be fine, and it's in my TODO list.

Blu ray has DRM, menus, different sound formats (pcm, dolby, dts etc.) and different storage formats (iso, bdmv folders, mkv etc.).  This added complexity will be a big challenge. SnakeOil will need to be made smart enough to extract the stereo layer from the menu structure, and then play a licensed Dolby or DTS audio stream.  Sad  Yuk!

More importantly, there are good media players from Zidoo, Zappati and Dune which were designed for Blu ray.  We are better off focused on stereo music only.

Even just cr playback would be great 
wondering what remote would be used for this though
