But it’s a pity that article does not provide detailed steps. I want to store my Blu-ray movies on my personal cloud so I can watch them on Roku from anywhere I have a fast internet connection. Is there a simple guide of this purpose?”
If you are looking for an answer to backup Blu-rays from discs to personal cloud for Roku, here is right place you could find. You must know that Roku does not accept Blu-ray video as input file since it is a series of set-top boxes and provides over-the-top content in the form of channels. A Roku streaming device gets data (the video stream) via a wired or Wi-Fi connection to an Internet router.
To watch Blu-ray movies on Roku via personal cloud, you will need a Blu-ray ripping tool to digitize your Blu-rays to personal cloud/Roku compatible file type beforehand. Pavtube BDMagic <review>, a powerful Blu-ray and DVD ripping program, is what you need. This software application enables you backup, rip and edit Blu-ray as well as DVD movies to virtually any video/audio format you desire.
