    Is it possible to hook my blu ray player to my iPad?

    If not is there anyway to stream it somehow?

    No and no.

    You can rent HD movies on iTunes though.

    This

    or I'd advise you to start purchasing Blu-rays that come with digital copies.

    No. You could rip the movies and sync them via iTunes.

    Other than hooking up the blu-ray player to a slingbox, no.

    This does require specialized software (like AnyDVD HD) that I believe is only available on Windows.

    You can do it with HandBrake which runs on Windows and Mac OS.

    No you can't. BD requires AACS and BD+ dynamic/updated decryption.:eek: Handbrake doesn't have this and no OS X program I know of.

    CrAkD added makemkv but this like AnyDVD HD is a Windows only solution.

    None of these do BD which the OP is asking about.

    Apologies for the confusion between BD and DVD. See the updated info.

    Sorry, I was referring to DVD. Didn't realize the OP was referencing BD.

    It has been ported over to OS X (welcome to 2010 Julien :D ). So there is a OS X (2 step) solution. Of course you have to buy a BD-ROM player since Apple doesn't use/support BD. I downloaded it and will hook up my BD-ROM (hope it has drivers) this afternoon and give it a try.

    Rumour has it that HB are working on a Blu Ray capable version....But what I want now is the ability to rip 3D stuff....That's a long way down the road I think.

    You can rip an (only) IOS 3D image in Windows using AnyHD DVD. However this has nothing to do with the Pad since you can't play an ISO or 3D file on the iPad.
