    As much as I like owning something physically,streaming is just a lot quicker and more convienient.

    Vudu has a really nice feature called Disc to Digital, where if you already own the disc, you can get an HD digital copy of that movie for $2. All you have to do is scan the bar code with your phone. I've done this to all of my physical movies in order to have them via streaming. Very convenient.

      And he just said the same thing....should've listened to the whole thing before commenting. But I really do like Vudu. I can see how having a massive library would be a pain to convert. Not all of my movies that I physically own are in Vudu's database to convert.

    I'm sure streaming is fun and all but not to the people who live in countries without access to it.

    To find a specific movie across all your streaming platforms, use the app Just Watch. It changed my life.

    completely overlooking the value home theater enthusiasts care about. either uncompressed audio or much higher bitrate minimum. audio quality is more important to me than video tbh

    I would say streaming was the nail in the coffin. Blue ray was just slightly better quality.

    I'd suggest ripping your physical media and hosting a home Plex server to stream them. It's a pretty large time investment to set up though.

    i still buy dvds over blue ray any day, i agree with everything you said James and also the picture quality is just too good for the older movies where you can see the strings etc but dvd keeps a lot of that hidden, the newer movies are good for blue ray like star wars etc because its all CGI now, :-)

    The end bit where you talked about putting all the streaming services into one, I have called this as a future years ago! It would be easy to do to have 1 app and you pay 1 account for access to all of these in one app, then they know which thing you are watching and send the appropriate royalty to them. A way of seeing how it would work is *KODI* (which is illegal) but that is 1 app, streaming any movies or tv shows from all streaming platforms easily! That is an example of how it could work...

    My Android TV and even my LG Web os 2 tv will search the streaming services I have and even plex for the movies when I search.
    Copying your dvds should be easy. Your VHS I think it would be quicker for you to build a new player from scratch than try and rip those to hard drives. And don't get started on the size of the server/nas your going to need.

    Or pay $15 a month just to watch the office 😂 when you can buy the collection for a quick $75 and be done with it haha and it has bonus features. P.s. I also purchased the toho godzilla collection. How did you NOT know the size based off the pictures? I would never ever ever ever pay to watch a movie i already own xD you're paying $30+ a month to rent a video collection.

    The only good thing about 4K is the possibility to play in HDR mode. But up to this day, it's still not really universal in our devices. That makes us want to keep HDR file and SDR file of a movie at the same time.

    I never stoped using VHS, but I went back to just getting every movie I can onto it. They're plentyfull and cheap. I can live with it's video quality too. If I ever want to rip then, I'll need to get a box that gets rid of macrovision or most DVRs won't even try to record the VHS, they never make it easy don't they.
