Hi - I just bought my WD TV Live player. I have been using Aimersoft to rip DVDs to digital formats (MP4, WMV, etc.) to play on my Zune, iPod, etc. However, those devices have a small form factor and I’m not sure what format will provide the best resolution for my HD TV (55"). Can someone give me a suggestion about that?
I also just bought a Blu-Ray drive for my computer and I have a few Blu-Ray movies. What’s the best method for getting them on a USB drive (WD, of course!) so that my WD TV can play in them in HD (1080p) on my television? Do you rip them with software or just copy certain files to the USB drive?
Any suggestions are guidance will be appreciated. I plan to read the manual tonight (I haven’t opened the box yet), but I’m interested in your actual experience as to what works best.
WD TV HD Media Player promises to play just about any video format you throw at it, including high definition video up to 1080p. You put the videos on any USB mass storage device, like an external hard drive or a thumb drive, and plug it into the device, WD TV HD Media Player will recognize the files on the drive and play any video, audio, or photo files it finds. However, according to the feedback provided by some users, WD TV HD Media Player does play m2ts selectively only, some are, and some are not. In purpose of solving this problem, this post will talk about how to rip Blu-ray movie to USB for playback on TV via WD TV HD Media Player.
The Blu-ray ripper we will use is called Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper , which can rip and convert DVDs and Blu-Ray movies directly to any other formats, including HD video format.
