Here's a question I have. Is it bad for an external hard drive to connect it to a media player and play movies directly from it? Will it ruin the hard drive over time? I have a WD 1TB external hard drive.

For BluRay TV Shows I use Ripbot264. I grabbed a few episodes of some popular HD TV Shows that get encoded down to 720p to see if I could mimic with my collection (it seems the same profile is used by these "encoders" for all HD Shows) and I am now pretty much spot on. With Ripbot264 I use the 3.1 profile (only change is I change the profile to High and add CABAC), change the resolution to 1280 x 720, set CQ to 22, and in about an hour on my PC I have a great looking 720p mkv (50 minute show comes out to about 1.3-1.4GB)
Either way, doesn't matter. With Clown_BD you will only get the main movie. If you use BDRebuilder you will have the full disc (and possibly more compression to get it to fit on the disc).
I would also recommend trying DVDFab which can burn directly to a disc and will compress if needed to fit
