    Ok : here's what i need to know as simply as I can put it:
    I have a computer with many video files I am streaming to my Pioneer BDp-95 Blue ray Player. I own a lot of Blue ray titles.

    What i want to know is what software and steps do i need to get a Blue-ray ripped to my HD and converted to some format were I can STREAM ONLY. I am not interested in burning any discs.

    i HAVE READ SO MUCH MY EYES ARE BURNING. WOULD SOME SOUL TAKE PITY ON ME AND TELL ME THE SOFTWARE NEEDED AND THE STEPS TO STREAM ONLY BLUE RAY??

    i'M GRATEFUL

    Hey Mike

    According to the manual the 95-series uses DLNA protocols, not unlike the PS3 for streaming purposes. However, it doesn't list specific formats that can be played natively without transcoding.

    http://tversity.com/home

    Tversity on the PC media server would be my suggestion. Transcode all would be a great starting point and dialed in from there. If the Pioneer SKU can import xxx.m2ts natively, disable transcoding because all is good in the world. If it cannot renaming xxx.m2ts file to xxx.mpg works OK though its going to take a beefy proc to transcode 1080 on-the-fly.

    Alternatives that I've tried would be twonkyvision (no transcoding available), NeroHome (only a mother could love), or WMP11...all use DLNA subset.

    Good Luck

    P.S. I might have misunderstood the question, seems like streaming is already enabled, just not for Bluray's (xxx.m2ts).

    Easy, use AnyDVDHD to rip movie to hard drive, isolate movie xxx.m2ts and see how current streaming services handle it. If it cannot then Tversity might still have to come in and play ball.
