I have just ordered a NAS drive (2TB) and I would like to be able to store some of my Blu-Ray and DVDs on this NAS and stream it to my TV. I can do this via xBox or via my surround sound system. I have never done this before and hope someone can help advise me.
My questions are:
1) If I do this, will surround sound still work on the played back movie?
2) If it is a 3D movie, will the 3D still work?
3) Can someone advise some recommended software to achieve this?
4) I have read that some people rip the disc then strip out sections and maybe even compress it. I assume the only advantage to doing this is reducing size. I don't want to sacrifice any quality (which I assuming shrinking it does) but I could strip out bonus features, trailers and multiple languages etc if it is worth while. Any advice on this aspect would be appreciated.
I was hoping the process is as a simple as inserting the Blu-Ray/DVD into my computer and running the software to rip and then perhaps running the editing software if required after - if there is anything else I am not considering I would be grateful to know!!
Thanks a lot for any advice.
