I'm going to be building my desktop soon and have had a question that no one can give me a hard answer on. I want to load all my entire blue ray and music collection on the computer and play directly from that computer (computer will plug into receiver). Will I loose quality in regards to video and sound? Especially since the computer will plug directly into a 51" Plasma.

I was told a blue ray rip is anywhere from 25gb to 50gb. Others have told me there is software that can compress it into "M" something without loosing any quality and taking up less space.

Any help or advice would be great!

Thanks,

Hello,

There is a special section just for home theater personal computers that might be more helpful:

Recoding your movies will cause quality loss. Storage is relatively cheap.

"Recoding your movies will cause quality loss."

I apologize. First post to the forum. Well If I'm going to lose quality just by storing blue rays on the computer, there is no point in me building one. Will move to correct thread.

Thank you!

Blurays can be stored on a computer without compression where you lose nothing using programs like MakeMKV or you can use a program like Handbrake to turn it into something smaller to save space or use on a phone or ipad.
and

BTW: you can delete your own thread. goto the first post. hit edit and then hit delete.
