How to organize and centralize a huge library of multimedia collections? The most prevailing way people use these days is a multifunctional media server (e.g. ViewSonic NMP - 708, AC Ryan, KDLINKS). And media servers like Synology DS415play not only manages your multimedia contents but also shares them with a smart TV, network media player, smartphones and tablets, Mac and Windows PC, etc.
Is it a dream to make Blu-ray movies be a part of multimedia collections in Synology DS415play, and then use a HD media player like a WD TV 2 to realize Blu-ray playback on HD TV with high quality? Above all, remove Blu-ray protections and then convert Blu-ray movies to WD TV 2 supported video format which are listed as follows:
