What is the best Blu Ray player for streaming Blu Ray ISOs with full menu support? Storage is Synology NAS, both hardwired. I am leaning towards Dune HD B1, but I am opened to suggestions. Reliability is more important than features or picture quality. It must be able to read the ISOs over the network not USB.

Does the B1 work better with ISOs or file structure?

The Dune has to do less work with the file structure but to you it looks the same and .iso files are easier to maintain, admin, move, recreate discs, change formats, etc.

Hi Krassyg,

I second Mlknez's response. But in addition, you will probably want to use one of the third-party jukebox packages with your Dune. Some jukeboxes might prefer ISO while others might prefer folders, so you may want to save that decision until after your jukebox decision. The Dune won't care either way.

I use file structures and the Dune works just as well with ISOs and folder structure. Either choice is a great option, and no player handles Blu-ray rips better then the Dunes

Curious, why do you think ISOs are easier to change formats vs. File Structures. I see no difference, and if anything in order to change formats there is at least an extra step with ISOs because it has to be mounted first on a PC

The only reason is just a single file and it is standard.

I understand the single file. I meant specifically changing formats, I don't see how having an ISO or a single file makes it any easier then a folder rip. For example, if you want to use Handbrake you just point it to the folder, just as you would point it to an ISO. Same deal for Clown_BD, etc... without the need to actually mount the ISO

Damian

Any difference in how the movies are displayed in regards to ISO vs. Folder playback? I assume the player downloads the movie info and artwork from a database, like the My Movies or Media Browser. Is there any difference in the way they are organized? Which way is the fastest one to start playback, ISO or Folder?

I use DVDFab so I never have the need to mount... dvdfab works directly with the iso file, mkvfile, folder structure, etc.

They work the same in just about all respects...

Makes sense, just didn't want to give the impression that there were extra steps with a folder structure vs an ISO when accessing from a PC since there aren't. Really, aside from having one ISO file vs. a folder structure there is zero difference with how you would interact with either on a PC
