    Those of you who know me will know that I am not technical at all!

    I have a 3.24 GB movie which I just downloaded from Youtube (in 1920 x 1080 definition).

    I wish to then place this on my USB > to my blu ray player > watch movie, and most importantly, Id like it to be high quality and the quality to not drop hugely.

    However, I realised my player does not play MP4 files. So now I am stuck with a MP4 file which I need transferred to another format which my player can read (Im assuming .avi or DVD format), and I also have a Mac.

    Are there any specific Mac tools which can help me convert this easily, without losing the quality? The main reason why I downloaded this from Youtube is because the quality was amazing.

    Well I know a tool called HandBrake which can convert your video format and at the same time cause no effect to your quality. I don't know if its available for mac but.

    Already by having it downloaded from Youtube it is losing some quality as Youtube has special convertors before making it live.

    If you want to enjoy HD movies from your home get a laptop that plays HD movies flawlessy, get an HDMI and connect your laptop to your TV and there you have it.

    Thing is I need it to be connected to my blu ray player as that is connected to all the speakers around the room.. Is there a way to connect the laptop to the blu ray player instead?

    Trying it, thanks!

    Very timely post, I am currently converting and burning mp4 files.

    Code:
    ConvertXtoDVD
    That software did the job. Drag and drop videos, convert and burn in one click. I use cracked V4 which can be found in TPB (torrent). Version 5 is not working properly so I suggest use V4.
