I built up a fairly big collection of DVDs that were "archived" from DVDs I rented. I used AnyDVD and CloneDVD to copy them to blank DVDs. Now, we finally have a Blu-Ray player with Wifi built-in. I'd like to start "archiving" from future Blu-rays that I might rent.
I'm wondering if just ripping them to a large external drive would work just as well as buying a burner and blank Blu-ray discs. I see that Slysoft has AnyDVD HD which I can use to get throught the protection. But, I don't see a simple program for copying, like CloneDVD did. Especially for copying to the 25GB DVDs, which seem to be much cheaper.
If I rip to the hard drive, would I be able to stream at an effective speed, to my Blu-ray player? I have Serviio console which makes it possible to stream from this external hard drive, I've already tested with an avi file. I just don't know if normal home WiFi Wireless N is fast enough to stream from a Blu-ray source. I guess it is because I can get Netflix streaming with HD.
Just would love to hear thoughts and suggestions on whether this is a good or bad idea, and any suggestions for better ideas.
