Steve Jobs says “YouTube does HD” – no need for Blu-ray?

Steve Jobs says “YouTube does HD Video”, so no need for Blu-Ray? I’ve long said no Blu-ray on OS X ever, Jobs agrees

I have long held that Apple was never going to support Blu-ray Movie Playback on OS X. Partly because the internal memory encryption isn’t there in the OS, but also because Apple was moving toward Internet download as the primary distribution system – one that they have much more control over than Blu-ray.

Seems that Steve Jobs is owning up to the same thing. So don’t hold your breath for a Blu-ray enabled “DVD” Studio Pro. Not going to happen. I think we have all the Blu-ray authroing we’re going to get from Apple, via “Share” in Final Cut Studio (2009).
