Why would I need muxing software? At the very least I should be able to just burn the video files to a BR disk, and I could 
recover them on the machine with the BR burner, right?

Are you saying that I would need muxing software to create a BR disk playable on a consumer player? Since a BR player can 
play back a DVD, why couldn't it play back a DVD type file stored on a BR disk?

Please forgive me if I am missing something obvious, but I would think I only need muxing software if I want to create a 
BR type file structure, HD with DTS audio, but I don't see why I couldn't just use the same file I would use to burn a DVD
