However, the problem I ran into is that I don't know the way playing my Blu-ray movie direcly on my WDTV steaming from KDLinks media player. As I already know KDLinks media player supports BDMV and M2TS fils, I was trying to copy a Blu-ray disc to m2ts file or BDMV folder at first.

For copying your Blu-ray discs for enjoying with KDLinks media player, you need to remove the Blu-ray copy protection first. I just recently purchased Pavtube BDMagic to replace my method of using MakeMKV/Handbrake to rip my Blu-ray/DVD movies since Pavtube was advertised as being quicker.
