How to Put Your Blu-ray Movies on Home Network?
Why we choose to put Blu-ray movies to Home Network?
Some Blu-ray collectors advocate saving the copy of Blu-ray movies to Home Network because If Blu-ray movies are saved to computer, you will always have access to them without the use on disk players. Another argument in favor of saving your Blu-ray movies locally is that they are not subject to the vagaries of Internet streaming. If your online bandwidth drops for some reason, the Blu-ray movies will still play from a local computer or hard disk at full speed .
Choices to move Blu-ray movies to Home Network
At some point, your Blu-ray collect may start filling up your bookshelf, in which case, move your Blu-ray to an external hard drive. The external drive can be discovered on the network when connected to a computer running media-server software or by creating a shared file folder that points to the media folder on your hard drive.
On the other hand, If all of your family members want to save their media library and Blu-ray movies in a centralized location, get a NAS drive, which can store from 1 to 12 terabytes (TB) of files. Designed to be used as media servers, they can be set up to easily share your medias including Blu-ray movies with media players and computers on your home network.

No matter which centralized location or the storage device you choose, you need to copy Blu-ray for moving to Home Network. Theoretically, you can copy the entire Blu-ray disc or the main title of the disc to put on Home Network. But considering the supported format limit of the media players and multimedia devices you use later, if you want to play Blu-ray movies via Home Network on various devices, you’d better backup Blu-ray to MP4, MKV, MOV and other more compatible format.

Step 3: Hit on “Format” to open the drop-down list. Here has hundreds of popular formats. You can see there are many optimized preset for mainstreaming devices, like “TVS”, “iPhone”. Of course, considering the compatibility, I suggest you to choose “MP4” or “HD MP4” in “Common Video” or “HD Video”.
Tip: Normally, you don’t need to adjust the video/audio parameters by yourself, the software should make the best choice for you. But you still can open “Settings” next to the Format to preview the output video size and adjust video/audio size, bitrate, etc. As you see, when you change the output video size, bitrate, the output video size will change largely, too.
