ripping is indeed much more complicated than music
, but not always so. If you are using DVDs, there's a lot of support for it. BluRay, much less support and more problems with copyright
And then, regardless of which media is your source, there are some questions about playing the movies. If you are playing them on a computer, no problem at all, whatever the rip software
made usually plays by just clicking on it.
If you are trying to play them from a file server, or play them on a "smart tv", often one extra layer of complications because the smart TV's tend to be really dumb, and you need to convert the movies to a format they can read, like mp4.
I suspect they are dumbed down on purpose so the tv makers don't have to argue with the copyright
lobby. The bright side of this is that when you convert them into mp4 files, the files are way way smaller than the originals, so you need less storage
Sometimes you can even find the appropriate software
in the office supply stores, like Staples. In a real box and all. Still unlikely for BluRays though.
