^ Wait, so converting a ripped blu-ray into divx wouldnt keep the quality? Because I know for a fact 360s play Divx format.
anytime you convert video and audio you loose quality, best type of ripped blu-ray movies are .m2ts which are untouched from the disc, but playing them on other devices is not always going to work so you have to convert them to formats that they will play, more often then not you are loosing half the file size if not more and a lot of quality.
The .m2ts from the Transformers ROTF is something like 30gb+, converted to DIVX or h.264.mkv playable on 360 the file is only around 9gb, you really think no quality loss occurred?
and after that point you need to use a transcoder that is going to further degrade quality to stream it
Now if you want to stream directly off the blu-ray disc to the 360 the copy protection inherent in BR and the players is not going to allow it
