You can copy Blu-ray to ISO images to protect your discs with the original video and audio quality. But the size will be also nearly original.

If you are using NVIDIA 980TI, you won’t need to worry that. NVIDIA 980TI supports HEVC encoding acceleration. So if your Blu-ray Ripper supports NVIDIA CUDA or NVIDIA NVENC hardware acceleration, you can same a lot of time on Blu-ray to H.265/HEVC encoding on NVIDIA 980TI.

Get Recommendation for best 3 Blu-ray Region Killer Apps for Win/Mac

Dec 21, 2016 09:38 am / Posted by Diana Joan | Categories: Blu-ray

Even though Xbox One S and PS4 Pro claim that they support to play Blu-ray discs, many people still meet Blu-ray playabck issues. Why? That is because each game console is manufactured for playing the Blu-ray and DVD discs relased in the same region. So, when your Xbox One S is Region B, you won’t play region A Blu-ray discs.

To play a region A Blu-ray on Region B Xbox One S, you pretty much have two choices — either get an external region A Blu-ray Player — or remove Blu-ray discs region codes with a Blu-ray Region killer. The former way is easy but expensive while the latter way enables you to load Blu-ray to external hard drive to stream Blu-ray movies on Xbox One S, PS4 Pro, Samsung TV, LG TV, Projector, WD TV Live, PC etc freely.

So which Blu-ray Ripper software can act as a Blu-...

“I am trying to play my The Martian BluRay DVD’s on my MacBook Pro – but, it’s not playing, nothing is coming up. Anyone know how to play BluRay on a MacBook? Is it even possible?”

When people have smartphone, tablet, TV, PC, laptop, game console at the same time, Blu-ray playing is not limited to Blu-ray Player any more. Just like the need in the above question, some want to watch Blu-ray movies on MacBook Pro. However, MacBook Pro has DVD drive but no Blu-ray drive, so you can play DVD on MacBook Pro directly but can’t play Blu-ray discs on MacBook Pro directly. To play Blu-ray on MacBook Pro, you need an external Blu-ray player (the built-in SuperDrive does not support Blu-ray) and a Blu-ray player (such as Mac Blu-ray Player ). Then you can play Blu-ray discs on your Mac.

Don’t ask if PS4 support Blu-ray again. It does. If you can’t play Blu-ray discs, check the disc if it is broken. If don’t, it is likely to be the Blu-ray region codes issue. When your Blu-ray discs are sold in a different region from where the PS4 was manufactured, your PS4 won’t read your Blu-ray discs. In this situation, many people choose to rip Blu-ray to external hard drive then stream Blu-ray to PS4 via USB port. But actually, you can stream your Blu-ray backups/rips from PC to PS4 directly.

There are usually several subtitles in different languages in one Blu-ray disc. If you think the built-in subtitles are not qualified, you can add and set your own subtitles to the Blu-ray movie.

We live in a wonderful world of digital media. There are nearly unlimited options to watch anything you want, on any device you want, anywhere you want. But sometimes the media you buy in one format won’t play on the devices you want to watch it on. Such is the case with Blu-ray discs and iPads.

iPads family has plenty of members: the new iPad Air 3, iPad Air 2, iPad Air 1, iPad Pro, iPad Mini 4, iPad Mini 3, iPad 4, etc. None of the iPads family can play Blu-ray movies directly. That’s because, iTunes, Apple’s media player that controls what content is synced to your iPad, won’t import Blu-ray discs into your library. This means it’s effectively impossible to watch Blu-ray movies and TV shows on your iPad.

Galaxy Note 4 is the most hotly anticipated phablet of 2014, and it is packed with a very big screen of 5.7 inches with a screen resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. Now I plan to preorder one and want to get my large Blu-ray and DVD collection ripped and copied to this Galaxy Note 4. Then I can watch them on long plane flights – like yesterday, which involved a 4 hour flight. So I’m looking for a way to make the Blu-ray and DVD video playable on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with Mac OS X.

Unfortunately I found there is no way to insert a disk into the Galaxy Note 4. In this case, I have to convert BD/DVD to a Galaxy Note 4 friendly video format to make it possible to watch Blu-ray, DVD video on Galaxy Note 4...

Sep 16, 2014 10:19 pm / Posted by Diana Joan | Categories: Blu-ray

iPhone 6 Plus has been published for some days and I really look forward to enjoy the bigger display as soon as possible. But I wonder if there is any way to stream my Blu-ray and DVD ISO backup on iPhone 6 Plus. So I need a solution that can help me keep my iso files on iPhone 6 Plus.

iPhone 6 Plus

The ISO is an exact digital replica of the DVD/BD disc which is an ideal way of backing up personal DVD/BD collection. Although it is convenient for backing up and archiving, it doesn’t lend itself all that much to portability. Due to lack of Media Player, the iPhone 6 Plus supports very limited formats and DVD ISO files are the tab does not play. If you’d like to put Blu-ray and DVD ISO onto iPhone 6 Plus for the following travel, it is advised that you convert ISO to iPhone 6 Plus supported video form...

Rip Blu-ray and DVD movies to AC Ryan Player for watching

AC Ryan PlayOn HD Full Network Media Player is the best Media player I have had so far. I use it for storing all my Movies, Music and Photographs which I can scroll through within seconds. AC Ryan Player claims no other media player supports as many file types. Video playback is good, and it has no problems with a range of standard-def and HD files including DivX, H.264, SRT subtitles and a full HD M2TS Blu-ray rip. Audio support is even better with HDMI or digital audio pass-through for Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, Dolby TrueHD and AAC 7.1 plus stereo downmix of all except DD Plus.

Watch The Avengers Blu-ray on Vizio 70″ M-Series 3D Smart LED HDTV in 16:9 display

Diana Joan

Sep 04, 2014 03:57 am / Posted by Diana Joan | Categories: Blu-ray, TV

I bought my very first 3D TV The M701d a week ago at Costco. It is the second largest LED TV in the M series for 2013/2014. The 2D picture looks great and it also has a very nice deep rich 3D quality picture. But right away I noticed some cross talking on the bottom part of the screen when I watched John Carter and The Hobbit, mostly when there was subtitling. I saw it really bad when watching Wreck-It Ralph last night. Depending on the depth of the 3D image, the cross talking is extremely noticeable on the bottom half of the screen. Watching a 16:9 movie, like The Avengers, is almost unbearable. It is a movie in Blu-ray disc.

I’d consider myself a home entertainment enthusiast, as such I’m quite finicky when it comes to audio and video quality. I would happily drop out my LED TV and replace it with the BenQ W1080ST. The W1080ST delivered high quality and bright video, for as long as you were not shining a direct light at it.

And a few days before, I’ve purchased many 3D blu-ray movies, I wonder if my BenQ W1080ST projector directly play 3D blu-ray with 3D effect keeping? Is it necessary to hook up a Blu-ray player to it? I only have two options to hooking it up to a blu-ray player: S-video or that yellow video plug. No optical or DVI or HDMI plugs. I would really like to know before I go and spend a lot of money on a Blu-ray player.

What is Subtitles? Types of Blu-ray Subtitles:

Subtitles are derived from either a transcript or screenplay of the dialog or commentary in films, television programs, video games, and the like, usually displayed at the bottom of the screen. The Bluray m2ts format allows for two types of on-screen overlays that can be used for subtitles. One is based on text but as for now I’ve seen no BluRay using this one for subs. The other one is the PGS (Presentation Grapic Stream) and consists in bitmaps (and the timeframes on which they have to be displayed). That second stream is by far the most commonly used by BluRays.
