To make an exact copy of a disc as far as quality goes, use a program called MakeMKV. It will create an MKV file of the exact quality that's in the .m2ts or .Vob files on disc.
Fr streaming, I have settled on Plex. I find it to be the best all around solution. I liked it so much I went the extra mile to support them and bought a life time Plex pass, which adds additional features, However if you're interested in exploring features beyond the free version, try the 5 bucks a month plan. /Also while Plex does support DLNA and works with the Sony players without issues, you will get more from it if you use a device with the Plex app on it.
FYI: for DVDs and standard blu-rays I have ripped all my most watched movies to Plex so I don't use discs much unless it's for TV shows which can be a pain to rip, depending on how they are organized on disc.
My main discs I till use are 4K blu-rays with an xbox one S.
Hope this helps! have a great day!
P.S As far as setting up the player, you really just need to set Plex up on the computer or other device you want to use add media and the player should pick it up automatically under the network streaming tile on the home screen.
