after owning one for awhile . . . and then being introduced to netflix streming, i must say i use it very rarely except to watch old collections of previous owned dvds and few blurays.  the product is best left for your top ten list of movies and the such.

Just started down this path.  Just for the record, what's the preferred file format, size, etc. for eventual playback on a tv?

VOB files in the video_ts folder are exact copies of the disc. There are programs that will convert the folder into a single file.

I'm with Thirsty on this, at least for playback on TV.  Storage space is so cheap now that I no longer compress movies.

Depending on what device you use for playback, VOB rip to MPEG2 (single file conversion) for standard DVDs (about 1.5-3GB per movie), .mt2s to 1080p H.264-encoded MP4 for Blu-Ray that comes in around 15GB-40GB depnding on the movie.

No compression here either. Pretty happy with it.

I was going to share the link to the NSFW Burlesque Battle: Star Trek vs. Star Wars on wired.com but it turned out to be not that interesting....

Me too

 :o

That shouldn't be a surprise as I have not hidden my thoughts on tangible media.  When there is something I think I should own, I purchase the 1080p digital file, otherwise I stream/rent HD files from various sources.

On the rare occasion, I rip blu-ray movies with a laptop into digital files, usually to replace something I originally owned on standard dvd. 

I do not see a reason to buy a blu-ray player when my Xbox/Tivo/HTPC are all capable of doing everything a blu-ray player is capable doing, short of new audio codecs that my stereo doesn't even support anyway...
