    Enjoy Blu-ray on WD TV Live – like popcorn hour, but half the price

    Enjoy Blu-ray on WD TV Live – like popcorn hour, but half the price

    I’ve been trying to find a decent media streaming/storage device for a long time. Until I got Western Digital’s new streaming and storage box, the WD TV Live which is the newest HD streaming solution, not only for the box itself is very tiny but also it supports a large number of audio and video formats:

    Video - AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), MPG/MPEG, VOB, MKV (h.264, x.264, AVC, MPEG1/2/4, VC-1), TS/TP/M2T (MPEG1/2/4, AVC, VC-1), MP4/MOV (MPEG4, h.264), M2TS, WMV9
    Photo - JPEG, GIF, TIF/TIFF, BMP, PNG

    Audio - MP3, WAV/PCM/LPCM, WMA, AAC, FLAC, MKA, AIF/AIFF, OGG, Dolby Digital, DTS

    Playlist - PLS, M3U, WPL

    Subtitle - SRT, rear end, SSA, SUB, SMI

    However, as for those Blu-ray movies, the WD TV Live can not accept at present. Therefore, I have to convert them to AVI, MKV, MPG, MP4, etc. workable to the WD TV Live via a special program likeMoyea Blu-ray Ripper for Mac. If you just caught the same case like me, please follow me as below:

    Free download Moyea Blu-ray Ripper for Mac, install and run it.



    Step 1: Load Blu-ray files into this program

    Click one of the three buttons you could realize it: the “DVD Rom”, the “DVD Folder” and the “IFO/ISO

    Step 2: Select output format and set the destination folder

    In order to keep the converted Blu-ray quality excellent, here I’d rather choose “MKV HD Video” for playback on WD TV.



    Step 3: Set advanced settings

    Just click the “Settings” button, it allows you to adjust Video or Audio parameters to ensure the output HD quality.

    Step 4: Convert/Rip

    Actually we can also edit Blu-ray files before ripping with its powerful editing function of this Blu-ray Ripper for Mac.
    1. If you want to crop certain unwanted part of the Blu-ray files, just use the Crop Function by clicking the “Crop” button
    2. If you want to clip the Blu-ray files into several segments, just use the Trim Function to realize it.
    3. If you want to add some special effects on your videos, just use the Effects Function.

    Beside the above options, you can select other editing functions like audio replacement, watermarks, effects, etc.

    Okay, hope it helps!

    When this first came out, me and some other guy name brad... helped the community out by offering all the info needed to convert all videos and audio streams to workable formats since there were some tweaks to be made and brad helped by hacking the system to allow it to do a LOT more stuff.

    We were found over on avsforum but eventually i left. I host the WDTV conversion guide since i'm the author of it but it is only for PC use so software suggested really can't help you but may help others.
