    No. Blueray disc will only play in Blueray players. 

    Source(s): Tried it.

    No because hdmi and blu ray compatability are two separate things

    No. Blueray involves having a particular type of laser pickup that can read tracks laid down much closer together than a standard DVD uses. Thus more data can be placed on the disk. Movies can use this extra room to lay down finer resolution images or more content, or whatever. It doesn't necessarily have to do with the attached cable. HDMI is a useful, standardized connection for digital devices, but certainly not the only high rate connection possible or available.

    As a allegory, you could say that blueray players can read much finer print, have better reading glasses. They can still read the bigger print editions that DVD players read. A BLUERAYcapable player will have the blueray logo all over it.

    If it isn't a Blu ray player, then it can't play Blu ray discs.

    no, blu ray is a format in the disc system and HDMI is just an output to the tv, alternative to component

    Of course not. Only a BluRay player can play a BluRay disc.

    This wins the Stupidest Question Of The Day Award.

    Those things are entirely unrelated. A DVD player that cannot play Blu-rays might have an HDMI output, so you cannot make that assumption purely based on the video out format.

    It just means you may hook it up to a TV set with a HDMI port.

    Well no. It has to specifically mention Blu-Ray playback capabilities in order for it to be able to do so. At that point, it would be a Blu-Ray player rather than a stand-alone DVD player.
