Summary: The article shows you with an easy solution to streaming Blu-ray to Chromecast by ripping Blu-ray to Chromecast friendly video format.
<br/>
<br/>
<br/>
<br/>The Chromecast has a dead simple setup process. For instance, you don't have any remote control. You need a smartphone, tablet, or PC to use it. Once you have everything set up, any connected device in the house can send videos to the TV. However, some problems would occur if you get some unsupported movie source like Blu-ray movies. It’s a bit painful to stream Blu-ray to Chromecast. My purpose here is to give you the best and easiest solution.
<br/>
<br/>As you know, besides streaming movies from Netflix and YouTube, Chromecast can also cast local files like MKV, MP4 with the Google cast browser extension. Unfortunately, Blu-ray is not included. The best way I’ve figured out is to rip Blu-ray to MP4 and then use the Chromecast’s local playback workaround to stream files to Chromecast.
<br/>
<br/>Well, to stream Blu-ray movies to Chromecast, you need to get the content off the Blu-ray disc as a protection-free and convert to a readable format. In this case, powerful third-party Blu-ray ripping software is what you need. Here, Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper is right for you. It is capable of ripping DVD to MP4, MKV, MPEG for Chromecast streaming with no quality loss. If you are running on Mac OS X, turn to Blu-ray Ripper for Mac. Now let’s learn how to do it.
