I have been looking around for this for a while, but need some advice. I know how to rip Blu-rays, and I have been doing so just fine. The problem I face is with streaming a ripped Blu-ray via NAS. I have a NAS with 6TB that I want to stream my ripped Bu-rays from. Searched some info from online, there are some guys also have the similar trouble:

“As a Blu-ray collection owner, I am trying to play my Blu-ray movie files off a NAS drive via WDTV. It’s really freaking cool! Any way to rip my Blu-rays into digital format and save to my NAS and playback on big screen in home cinema. Has anyone done this? What are the formats we should rip into?”

“The NAS is setup as a media server and is recognized as such on my network. I’ve tried different software to be able to rip Blu-ray movies to NAS recognized formats but to no avail, haven’t been successful in getting the resultant files to play on the Sony player.”

Fortunately, I got some tech support to help me solve the trouble. In fact, to enjoy Blu-ray movies on your big screen from NAS, you need to copy and convert Blu-ray to NAS compatible format first such as MP4 or MKV.
