DLNA Server software for a pc

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for software that I can run on my PC that would allow me to insert a blu ray disc into the drive on my pc, and then DLNA serve the movie contained on it to other DLNA clients. Is this possible, or do I have to rip the movie files off the blu ray disk and serve the m2ts files?

Any ideas?

There are a few programs that will stream to DLNA devices (Jriver is one) but streaming BD's on the go, i don't know if any does.

Might want to check out Play On to see if it can do it (I doubt it though.) They have recently (still in beta) added a feature to stream your local files. I don't know much about the feature as I've never had a need for it.

Alternatively, if you don't already have specific DLNA boxes in mind, you can get SageTV HD200 extenders and stream a BR disc from the drive of a computer running Sage Media Center (you also need to have AnyDVDHD on the computer.) Sage extenders aren't DLNA clients, but full fledged extenders that run in concert with Sage Media Center.

Thanks for the heads up. I already have half of that equation in AnyDVDHD. That's what drove me to look for this solution. I was also going to take a look at Sage, it appears to have better support for the Hauppauge PVR than Beyond TV does.

There are a couple of posts over in the SageTV forums ( forums.sagetv.com ) about the HD PVR. Probably more targeted to how sage works with the HD PVR than discussions you will find here. I would suggest looking there.

If you are interested in something like Sage, SageTV with Sage HD Theater extenders will give you much more capability than running streamers with a DLNA server.

FWIW, there is even a plug-in to Sage so that you can access Play On through SageTV extenders. I use it to have access to Hulu and Netflix through my extender in the bedroom.
