Backup VIDEO-BD - Possible?
Backup VIDEO-BD - Possible? –
first at all sorry for my bad english, i'll try to express myself as good as possible.
Now the question: Is it possible to backup Video-BluRay Discs with any kind of software? I've got a PS3 slim, using a minimusavr with latest hermesv4.
I already tried to copy the BD files by using "blackbox ftp", but all i could copy was some small files around a few kilobytes each. Then I tried to copy the BD by using "Gaia Manager", but this even fails like before.
This requires a BD-Rom drive doesn't it? Problem is I don't own one
so after you use the bd rebuilder can you ,or does it, convert the 1080p video from the blu-ray disc into a format, that can be used/stored on the ps3 hdd,and playyed back in 1080p on ps3?
You could use XVid4PSP (Winnydows Home) to convert them to a format that you can use on the PS3 or if you are feeling more daring you could use Mencoder or ffmpeg (Mencoder being my weapon of choice).

I thought this was possible using Multiman or the Blu-Ray version of Gaia Manager?
I haven't tried it myself, but I've seen the Blu-Ray player.pkg file of Gaia and I've seen pics of Multiman with Blu-Ray dumps on there. Unless those are BD-Rips from the internet?

but you dont see the benefit of using a manager?or having bd on your hdd? ,i got a 1tb external hdd for like 60$us,im guessing using external wont work because of fat32's 4gig limitation unless there is something can play split 1080 vid files from it,but is a 1tb external is only 60$ than an internal is even cheaper ,its much cheaper and more convienient to have your movies load off of hdd than take time writing expensive bd-roms , no?
just 2 questions which video codec formats are capable of 1080p
and do i have to have on the internal? how do you get it over is ftp the only way?
or is there a way to just play/stream 4gig files seemlessly in 1080p from the external hdd?
i thought someone said ps3 doesnt support mkv?
waht i meant to say was what video formats support 1080p and can be played and stored on ps3
wow 8 gig for a full 1080p movie ,seems small to me,dont bd-rom disscs hold like 40+gigs
and what formats would be the same as having the disc ,i mean with the menu and all not just the movie,so what is the best way to go?do you know of any good tutorial or youtube vids?
would getting the rips off the net then using the manager be the best or only method?
what exactly am i looking for when i search for a rip ?is it 1 file or a folder of files and what format would the file/files be in,in order to work with the manager ,or work like the original disc with menu
thanks for the help
yea you still didnt specify which formats supported by ps3 are capable of full 1080p video output,i dont want to encode and compress the video ,if im not going to be able to get full resolution,id rather the large file size ,arent there programs that can rip directly to the 1080p format i need for ps3 ,or do i have to rip into 1 format then convert to another1,i mean if size is not an issue?
if it was possible to get 1080p resolution with a compressed format then there would reall be no need for blu-rayvideo players dvd is only 480p,if you could get a 1080p movie an 8gig disc then why bluray if you could get a 1080p movie on a duallayer dvd
Alternatively you can use a UPNP app to stream the rips to your PS3 (I use PS3MediaServer) but be prepared to have 1 grunty machine and a WIRED connection to your PS3 to stream 1080's
The benefit here is you can use MKV's (and pretty much any codec that your PC supports)
To be honest, I'm quite surprised an MKV player hasn't come out yet.
