If the download was an ISO, it would be the same. And of course conversions to other containers, such as MKV, can also be exact copies of both the audio and video. One place where MKV's can save...

If your media player can convert the Dolby and DTS lossless formats to LPCM (which is still lossless - it's essentially the same as unzipping the contents form a zip file), you could send that...
