Included digital copies are still the exception rather than the norm in the Blu-ray world. Lame. You'd like to rip those discs for playback elsewhere, right? But there is something you should know first.
"7. Now you can choose how you want to convert the video. RipBot gives you presets for Apple TV, iPod or iPhone, PSP or a high-res file which can then be re-burned to a new BD disc. I chose the iPod/iPhone level." So you wasted loads of time ripping an HD movie and then downgraded it to iPod resolution? Epic fail.
How is that epic fail? You wouldn't want to watch the highest res possible on an iPod? Assuming your a person who travels alot with his/her iPod.
which is why movie studios would love for DVD to die off tommorrow.
Yup, that's true. Today, DVD's are easy to rip. But back when DVD came out, we had crappy dialup and no one really bothered DLing and ripping DVD's. So it's like BR today.
What's the point of watching the highest res possible if you're gonna do it on an iPod screen.
The Ipod and Iphone screen doesn't have many pixels in fact they have less pixels then a standard TV. HD basically is just a higher resolution display so there are 2 thing wrong with your logic. 1) Both a BluRay and normal DVD movie would look the same on an Ipod/Iphone. If not the normal DVD would look better because it wouldn't suffer from huge compression and be closer to its native resolution. 2) To see the effects of BluRay realistic you want a 26"/32" screen or even bigger would be better. Try seeing the effects of BluRay on a 3" screen if you can you have bloody good eye sight.
Oh My God!! Who the hell would want to go through all this?
yup the quality is good from bluray rips too.
and then you got half your hd filled with one movie good job this article is dumb
actually not really, it wouldn't be any larger then 10-15GB for one 1080p movie. even with 5.1 surround sound on it.
Half your HDD? For one BR rip? Damn speak for yourself kid, I'm rollin on 1 TB.
I'm going to post what someone else posted... "Or just use AnyDVD-HD to rip to .ISO and download Virtual Clone Drive (free from slysoft) and mount the disc as if it were a real disc. No fuss over encoding or getting codecs to work. Note: This is a 1:1 copy so it will take a 30(+)GB of space per movie, but with this you have all the menus, subtitles, etc." 1 hour total.
Pretty much the same effect, though. Slysoft is a reputable company.
Crappy article. Their are easier ways to rip blurays and watch them on your ps3. It's easy as pie.
Not that you would know, considering you don't own a PS3...
Rip Blurays for what? So I watch it on my comp? With My 17 inch Screen? No thanks. So now I have To buy a Bluray Burner and Disks and do all of this so I can watch Blurays on my TV? Yeah thats really smart.
Is archiving. What's more comfortable, an external 1TB drive with 30 - 50 rips on it, or a shelf full of discs?
Just buy a friggin' DVD if you want to watch super-compressed movies. The whole reason people watch Blu-Ray's and HD-DVD's is because they want uncompressed audio and video. Well, the video is *somewhat* compressed, but not nearly as bad as this does to it.
Seems that you're all missing the part of the article. It's dealing with the fact that while some BR's come with a digital copy for portable media playback, not all do. The article was written to get a copy of your movie into a PMP compatible format so you can watch it on the go. That's all. Now, stop getting your panties in a wad.
A twenty dollar blank Blu Ray disc and 12 hours is a bit too much for me. You can buy em used on Amazon for around 9.99. You don't have to have the movie day one.
pirates are gonna go crazy over this. or the most likely already have
This is why you barely find any blu ray rip torrents
I find blu ray rips and DL them all over the place. great quality without the stupid price:)
the price goes up!
