I had been using an XBox 360 for streaming media content to our hdtv, but the file type limitations have been a real bother, so this is the reason I choose KDLinks media player. The way I use my KDLinks is to run my hard drive off of it to watch movies and shows and I have to say I'm very impressed with the KDLINKS. It's played every format i've tried, including MP4, MKV, AVI, TSO, M2TS.
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. Now with this tool, I can easily backup 1:1 copying BD/DVD Disc content to local computer or directly copy only BD/DVD main movie and leave out extras. Really simple interface and powerful function. Needless to say I was excited to see this product under the tree!
The mac version is Pavtube BDMagic for Mac.
Now download the program and follow the steps below to backup Blu-ray movie to KDLinks media player for watching.
