Wish it's digital.
Even if you find a collection that's digital, Paramount has never played well with UV or Movies Anywhere so they'd be stuck to the one service.

Yea, I'll jump in here too. Got in a debate on The Sopranos Blu Ray thread that I'd waaayyy rather buy the blu ray's, rip them to my Plex server, and then then own my online experience with my own media. They, of course, thought that I should stack my DVD's next to my laserdiscs and 8 tracks. (Don't have to pay to watch/listen to them, do I?)

There's lots of folks out there who would truly rather pay for their entertainment monthly than own it themselves. Can't say I get it but fyi. . . they're out there.

Lastly, I found a software called DVDFab about 10 years ago. It works really well. They even have regular updates for the latest blu-rays. I don't have it yet, but they also have a a new version for 4K discs (albeit you have to have a 4K disc drive attached to your computer)

And as I learned from my Sopranos Blu Ray argument, not everyone has a disc reader player . . . and apparently have never heard of an {Dr Evil air quotes} External Drriiiiiiveee.
I used to do similar things with DVDs -- ripped hundreds of them and had them all curated, etc. But then I realized that I was spending a heck of a lot of time doing all of this, and had to have space to store the physical discs, etc. The introduction of Blu-ray just made it worse since ripping them takes longer and requires more storage, etc. So a few months ago I decided to just go totally digital and I've been enjoying it. I think there's something to be said for both approaches to be honest.

It's not that people would rather pay monthly, it's that people don't understand how to do these kinds of things.
Half the population can't pass the GED anymore, their IQ is less than their age.
And some people just plain don't want to. I buy physical for the sake of owning my shit and digital for the convenience. If the digital ever vanished then I would rip my physical.

Blu-ray quality is still superior to most streaming options. What streaming services call HD is compressed down to under 8GB for a 2 hr movie and the audio options are limited. A typical 2 hr movie on Blu-ray is 30GB with a multitude of audio options.

Hey question on that- do you only rip the movies themselves? So if you want to watch extras you still pop the disc(s) in?

I've been a Star Trek fan since way back when. When it comes to the movies, the only to that have any real replay value for me are the Wrath of Khan and First Contact. Everything else is a mixed bag, but those movies freaking rock.

I like ripping physical disks so I don't have to rely on a company like ultraviolet or an ISP to provide reliable connections to view what I own. I like to be able to put the movies on my kids tablets without having to pay for another line of service or use hotspot. I like to be able to watch the movies when I'm out camping in the trailer.

Recommendations on a good external drive? I need one.

I respect people who have the room and want to keep a physical collection, but with movies anywhere and the big corporations (microsoft, google, apple, xfinity) supporting it. I really am not worried if i lose digital rights to stuff i get for the price of a rental usually.

I also have a plex server that works great for tv shows but even theyre removing plugins and messing with my setup.

I own 10-15 blurays and its mostly stuff that isnt available digitally yet, or something I just have to own.

To each their own i guess

Is this your opinion only of the movies or the show(s) as well.

I use an internal LG internal drive, but connected with a usb 3.0 cable, externally.

https://www.amazon.com/LG-Electro...4766415839

I've ripped over 500 movies and literally hundreds of TV shows and the thing purrs like a kitten.

Using a 5TB NAS drive to host all the plex content.

If you're wondering, I went from a case that had 5.25" slot to one without, so that's why its external.

I started just ripping movies, but over time I found I wanted to take advantage of the extra content. I went through and ripped the movies again but with the director commentary tracks. On my Plex, I made a new folder for a new library so it only contains the Dir Com editions.

Having said all this, its not fast and takes some discipline to complete the process.

It has recently dawned on me to make another library called "Extras" and rip the 'making of's' and 'special features' and 'gag reels'. That's gonna take some serious organization thinkings.

But yea, I own the disc so its now mine to watch, rip, organize, store, delete, re-rip later when I get the bug again, etc. Mine.

I can't agree more with the folks who have commented on the video quality of Blu Ray v streaming. I put in Ant Man as a test (those night scenes at Pym Labs are stunning) and on Blu Ray the colors just pop. Streaming, looks good but missing that edge.

Im'ma pretty big movie buff so sometimes its a Blu Ray night. But I travel and having Plex setup keeps my subscription expenses low.

So you don't actually control what you've leased.

I like having physical media. Can easily convert it to digital.
And a scratch on a BD makes it useless.

No winners here, just preferences.

Hey, I have some Betamax films if you want'em.

I've also gone full digital. There is a little loss of quality for UHD streams over UHD disks, especially on a good tv. But even a super snob like me loves the convenience.

Sheesh, watching a movie in the den, then going to bed and picking up right where I left off... I love it.

Now, all I need are for HBO and STARZ to start streaming in 4k.
