How to play Blu-ray movies on HDTV via WDTV HD Media Player


It’s an amazing experience to watch HD movies on a home theater system in the living room with your friends or family. WDTV HD Media Player is a reliable gadget to realize this goal, since it can play just about any video format you throw at it, including Full HD video up to 1080p. With this little box, you are able to set free all of your collected photos, videos that stuck on your PC, and play them back on your HDTV. As we all know, Blu-ray disc is a pop medium to store high definition movies, but because of copyright issues, it’s a troublesome thing for users to have access to BD movies at will. Now I would like to share my own experience about how to play Blu-ray movie on HDTV via WDTV HD Media Player, and if you are interested in it, you can feel free to check the following content.
First of all, you should have a brief understanding of WDTV HD Media Player supported file formats:
Audio - MP3, WAV/PCM/LPCM, WMA, AAC, FLAC, MKA, AIF/AIFF, OGG, Dolby Digital, DTS
[b]Video[/b] - AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), MPG/MPEG, VOB, MKV (h.264, x.264, AVC, MPEG1/2/4, VC-1), TS/TP/M2T (MPEG1/2/4, AVC, VC-1), MP4/MOV (MPEG4, h.264), [b]M2TS[/b], WMV9
Playlist - PLS, M3U, WPL
Subtitle -SRT, ***, SSA, SUB, SMI
Photo - JPEG, GIF, TIF/TIFF, BMP, PNG
As you can see in the above list, M2TS is included, which is the file extension of Blu-ray streams, so if we want to playback BD .m2ts files, we just need remove BD protection in advance. In that case, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper would be a good assistant, it is able to remove almost all kinds of copyright protections of BD discs, no matter BD+, or AACS, even MKB Version > 10 is supported as well.
To enable Blu-ray movies to playback on HDTV via WDTV HD Media Player, you can select "Directly Copy" from output format profile. This process will remove BD protections only, and the output .m2ts files will fully match the original files, which will keep high definition totally, but your removable disk should have enough space to save the output files, because the generated file size would be as same large as the original.

Additionally, if you want to save your disk space as well as keep HD quality, you can totally select other format that can be read by WDTV as output format. For instance, here I choose "HD Video" .mkv as output format, through clicking "Settings" button, and then I can set video and audio parameters in the popup window, including setting aspect ratio at 1920*1080, AAC 5.1 channels and something else like bit rate, frame rate, sample rate.

After conversion is finished, just plug your external hard drive or your thumb drive which has stored the output files into WDTV, and then connect the device to your HDTV via HDMI cable. Once done, you are able to enjoy your BD movies now. Well, hope it would be of some help for you guys who are looking around for this info.
