If anyone else reading this has any connections please feel free to let me know. I was contacted once a few weeks back on this forum by a "touring calibrator" who told me to PM him and then never responded... twice.... despite being active on the forums.

1. Does the law in US allow me to rip a copy of my own blu rays and 4ks to use at home? I don't want to something that is illegal

2. I read something about UHD discs being encrypted and as of May 2017 no own had broken the encryption. Breaking encryption does not sound ethical. I don't want to do something that is not ethical.

3. What physical equipment do I need and how much money we talking about?

4. Is this a hard or difficult thing to do?

5. Is the video and audio identical to the original purchased disc? If not, I've got no interest.

As to streaming, I buy the premise that the video is as good as physical media. But if the audio is lesser quality, no thanks. I've rented blu rays where the audio was supposed to be fantastic and it wasn't. Come to find out that they had lesser audio on the rental. Had to buy the real physical disc to get the great audio, and it was great there. I don't want inferior audio via l streaming. Couldn't image watching say Hacksaw Ridge or Edge of Tomorrow or 13 Hours with inferior audio. To me, the bass is close to as important as the video image.

It sounds like physical is the format for you XBR. Streaming is pretty amazing these days in terms of PQ. It will suffer slightly compared to disk but in most cases it won't be noticeable. However, the sound quality difference will be noticeable if you have a nice setup and it's an action movie.

That might give you a little insight.

I'm not aware of it being illegal to back up your own physical media.

I rip the file with MakeMKV, encode it with Handbrake to a .mp4 or .m4v file and I store them on a USB 3.0 4TB HDD. I also have a 4TB backup drive that will become a secondary drive when the first is full. I have dual NvME SSDs for all my other data. Streaming speed with USB 3.0 is fast enough so that's where the data goes. The MakeMKV rip takes 20 mins or so per disc... then the HQ encode takes around 2 hours. What I do is rip a bunch and then set it up to encode after I go to bed... I wake up and it's done. The average file size is 5GB. It definitely doesn't require this beast of a PC to get the job done... but encoding is CPU intensive so having a good one helps.

My digital library (both digital movie codes and my personal discs I've ripped) is over 350 movies and I have it set up thru iTunes. I've got a barely used Apple TV 4K on the OLED... regular Apple TV on the bedroom plasma... and the multiple tablets and phones in the house are all tied into iTunes.

When watching the OLED I load the disc... when on the bedroom TV or any of the tablets/phones I just stream via the iOS movie app. It's more of a convenience thing and definitely a time burner. It took me a few months to get all my discs done when I started.

Good to go now though... For new titles I either use the code with my disc purchase or rip the older movie purchases that don't have codes.

I like streaming and definitely find it convenient... but I'm not ready to stop buying discs yet for reasons already mentioned.
It's very easy to do... just time consuming if you are encoding your own files.

As for the quality... if done right you'll be happy but still isn't better than a disc. As I said in my post I maintain a digital library for the convenience of streaming to the other devices (other than my OLED) around the house.

1. Yes and No. In the US you are legally allowed to make a backup of your purchased media but it is illegal to bypass copy protection to do so.

2. UHD media uses AACS 2 to protect content but there are now ways around that protection

3. All you need to rip a UHD is a "ripping friendly" UHD optical reader and one of 4 available software solutions, one of which is free

4. Depending on which software you use, it is extremely simple. It can be just a matter of right clicking and choosing an option

5. You can rip the disk to an exact image of the original if you want to keep everything, but only 2 of the 4 software solutions allows you to do that.

You may want to split this out to another thread at this point, as you clearly want to discuss items in some detail. Not that I personally mind this thread being more of a chat room at this point - with the 2018's out now there's a lot less to talk about here. But some people might.

No. Circumventing disc encryption is illegal under the DMCA. Are the police going to bust down your door because your family is watching a digital copy of a movie you ripped off a disc you physically own? Certainly not.

Quote:
2. I read something about UHD discs being encrypted and as of May 2017 no own had broken the encryption.
No longer true, but ripping UHD's does require specific drive models that cost more than regular bluray drives.

Quote:

This isn't the place for a lengthy ethical argument. If you feel it's wrong to make copies of media you purchased, then don't do it. edit: Without becoming too lengthy and philosophical, I do think you should consider the differences between the words "legal", "ethical", and "moral". They don't all mean the same thing.

Quote:
3. What physical equipment do I need and how much money we talking about?
For ripping regular blurays, any old bluray drive, a PC, and some free software. Cost... $50 for a drive if you don't have one plus drives for however much storage you want. edit: That's $50 for an internal drive - if you need an external for a laptop, those are a little more expensive. A good 8TB drive for storage costs $250 right now. That would hold about 300 lossless 1080p movies. A drive capable of ripping UHD's costs about $80. (edit: ...for an internal. Externals are significantly more expensive.) If you're planning on playing lossless copies, you'll also need a solid network infrastructure - preferably hardwired ethernet between your streamer and your server/storage.

Quote:
4. Is this a hard or difficult thing to do?
At the basic level of ripping lossless copies and playing them back over a LAN? Not at all. You could probably get up and rolling in a couple hours. Some people take it to a whole other level of multi-user, remote streaming and basically become Netflix for their friends - that introduces significantly deeper technical and ethical problems.

Quote:
5. Is the video and audio identical to the original purchased disc?
Yes, as far as the digital files are concerned. But you'll need a streamer or playback software capable of playing all the codecs involved. The easy solution there is to buy a Shield, which plays everything. edit: It's also worth noting that you reencode original files down to a smaller file size, just as streaming companies do. There's actually a ton of headroom in many BD's and you can often get a file that's indistinguishable from the disc in about half the size. This does require some significant CPU horsepower on a PC along with some technical knowledge, but it's not too hard to learn the basics.

Feel free to PM me if you want gorier details.

I have no idea where he is... but I know he didn't respond to either of the PMs I sent after he told me to PM him.

Maybe he'll read this because I'm not sending a 3rd.

With about 20 minutes remaining the screen had a spinning circle with "data loading" underneath. It spun for a few minutes and then wanted to down res the picture. I exited the app and restarted a few time with the same result. I did a quick check of my download speed which showed 106 MB. I then logged into the Vudu app on my XBOX One X for the first time and it played fine from there. All of this would have been avoided with the physical disc. Plus when you buy a digital copy it counts as bandwidth which might be an issue with what the FCC recently did, also I believe when you buy a digital copy you just get the license to view it - not actual ownership. I like streaming for its convenience in some ways but physical copies still have their place. I also think you dismiss the Atmos issues too easily.

That does not surprise me, Vudu sucks frequently.

I'm another one still on .36 and waiting for the auto FW update here in the US. However, I'm in no real rush for the current update, as I don't believe the FW changes since .36 would really do much for me given my viewing habits and current equipment setup. Hopefully the thing I'd really like to see in a FW update as soon as possible (i.e. something along the lines of the new 2018's static logo dimming protection feature) might be forthcoming in a future update. I suppose time will tell...

P.S. Perhaps it's taking them so long to push this one out because they're close to adding something else to it and don't want to have to go through two rounds of pushing out through auto update in such rapid succession when one round will do? I know, I know - probably just wishful thinking...

So the reason for the delay this time around is due to the fact that Dolby released a new profile library about mid-March that finally fixes the black levels bug for good. It will take at least a month to get that integrated into a new FW revision; and tested before being released into the wild. My guess is late April and its rev. number will be higher than the current Korean .76.

If I were to guess, they might be waiting for the full dolby vision fix instead of the partial one released in KR. If that's the case it might be awhile still.

I collect only a few ( around 50 ) of the best reference discs, and stream the rest. And I really don't have the time to manage a ripped library.
That's a well reasoned and valid argument. Why pay for a disc if you perceive that it gives no added value ?
I like to have the disc for two reasons : 1) Just to have the physical object ( a bit like LP covers) 2) Once it is ripped I can be pretty sure that when I come to play it there will be no irritating interruptions.
On a different note I play tons of music and here I am quite happy to buy a lossless digital copy. I then back it up and, although I have a large legacy collection of CDs, I always play from file. The convenience factor, by using a good music organiser, is just so great that it has really enhanced the experience and I would never go back to CD or vinyl.
