How to make a copy of Blu-ray movies like The Expendables 3 on an NAS so that you can stream The Expendables 3 Blu-ray movies to the new iPad Air 2, former generations of iPads, and iPhones for watching?
Before copying The Expendables 3 Blu-ray movies to an NAS drive, please make these points clear. First of all, Blu-ray discs are encrypted with copy protection, and some are with the latest encryption. A simple Blu-ray ripper will not handle protected Blu-ray discs for you. Secondly, a few free Blu-ray rippers can rip copy-protected Blu-ray movies, but they will not output proper formats like MP4, M4V and MOV for the new iPad Air 2.
Pavtube BDMagic for Mac which has been upgraded can help rip both common and commercial (copy protected) Blu-ray discs, even those with the latest encryption to MP4, MOV, and M4V for iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad Mini 3, iPad, iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and other iDevices. Apart from ripping Blu-ray movies to NAS for streaming to these iDevices, this Blu-ray ripper for Mac can also perform different conversion types like Blu-ray to MKV, AVI, FLV, WMV, Android, etc.
