Region lock is bullshit.
What's the easiest way to get a region-free blu ray player in Europe? It needs to support 3D.
If there's some movie I'd just like to check out, then I pirate it. But if I really like that movie, I'd like to get it in physical format.
I meant for playing it on my TV. Is there really no way?
>BR quality stream
There's no such thing, a BD is 40GB and to stream a 24 minutes video without lagging you need a 200 Mbit/s connection.
Did you actually believe that CR and Netflix stream at BD quality? Topkek.
I ripped a japanese BD a few months ago and it was over 40GB (48GB iirc), multiple M2TS files at 1080i resolution and the duration was 24 minutes total all segments.
Streaming in BD quality doesn't exists anyway, everything is encoded in lossy compression when we talk about streaming.
Why the fuck is there not. A blu ray is ancient tech based upon codecs that are now a decade old, seriously mpeg 2 and then even the newer avc have been long surpassed. 4k streaming is a viable option, youtube and netflix just use low bit rate. Perfect hd streams are entirely possible. My isp is selling me 120mb down for 20 euro month. For 60 euro I can have 360mb. Optical is deprecated in first world countries
