Get your Blu-ray movie be compatible with Popcorn Hour NMT C-200

play Blu-ray on popcorn hour


Does the Popcorn Hour NMT C-200 play Blu-ray? Some say yes and some say no. If you have a compatible BD drive installed in the Popcorn Hour, the media tank reads unprotected Blu-ray contents with no problem. The problem is most of the time we play copy-protected retail bought Blu-ray discs, instead of region-free and encryption-free ones. Popcorn’s Firmware update comes far behind the update of BD protections, rooting in Blu-ray playback issues such as stutters, frames drop out, out of sync, etc. Since Popcorn Hour streams and plays all kinds of video and digital media from storage device and network or from the Internet, you are advised to rip the Blu-ray to hard drive with Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper for Mac, and use the NMT C-200 to play the M2TS streams from BDMV folder or region-free Blu-ray ISO image over the Internet (NAS). In this post I’d like to share an easy workflow of ripping Blu-ray movies to be compatible with the NMT C-200. By the way, this is a Mac solution, if you’re working with Windows platform, please check ripping Blu-ray movies to play back on NMT Popcorn Hour C-200 on PC.
