Re: BlueRay and "digital copies"

H.264@36mbps is the best you can get for you big screen. But, for smaller devices or lowband networks you could sacrifice some quality for convenience.

What I am trying to say is it does not matter which streaming version you get. Stick to the full 36mbps bluray disk when watching at home. Or as Kearnstd said, rip your disk to the HDD. Once you rip it, you can stream it to any computer in the house as long as the network can handle 36mbps.

For wifi/4G use the digital copy or make you own. Even with Handbrake x64, the fastest trans-coder I've used it takes about 4hr to compress bluray H.264@36mbps to H.264@2mbps using a hex core cpu.

QuickSync can do it in about 15 minutes and x264 -preset ultrafast or superfast should get it done under an hour on a quad. The lower quality shouldn't be noticeable on portable device.
