hmm I believe I tried a ripped blu ray and it didn't work, maybe due to the level and spec.

Your other option (if this is the case) is to convert the file down to something we know will play.

http://www.makemkv.com/download/ to rip

and then any other software prog to re encode, I use ripbot264

but you will need to ensure you have installed the other bits of software it needs.

I have been using makemkv and dvd catalyst 4, but i am having problems ripping the subtitles, only the hard encoded ones like in avatar.

I will give ripbot a go.

I have been using Ripbot264 for years. I usually choose "SD iPad" setting
with MKV, 1280x720 resolution, CF22, 2.0 audio, normalized to 100%, and
hard subtitles(if needed). A 2-hour Blu-ray usually end up as a 1.3GB
MKV video file.

Instead of the default video player, I always use DicePlayer.(which plays
somewhat smoother 720p video than MX Player)

have you considered using DicePlayer? they've been successfully been able to play my anime, so maybe they're able to play bd? and if you rip them, i would suggest you also use formatfactory. just be wary when you install it as it tend to install random add-ons but other than that, it worthy to use.

FYI: DicePlayer also play .flv as well. i haven't fully tested it, but i can confirm that it play various format and known format to anime, if you know what i'm tlking about.

I have used the Blu-ray converter to enjoy the HD movies on my tablet and I have got it with the cheap price in the Easter deal, works very well.

I watched a 6 gig .mvk file on the Tab 2 today. I also used MX Player. Make sure you check the h/w+ option in the settings. Also if you encoded DTS just search for "mx player dts codec" and you will find one.

It’s an easy job as long as you rip and copy your media from your Blu-rays to your computer’s hard drive or even transfer them to your tablet or phone. An easy-to-use Blu-ray ripper is the key.

You can find some freeware like MakeMKV, but it also has some limit, like it can only help you to rip Blu-ray to MKV format, and it may not work well on Windows 8 or Mac Mavericks.

In this case, you can find a MakeMKV alternative tool like Pavtube Blu-ray ripper

To get Blu-ray movies playable in Galaxy Tab, what you need to do first is to rip videos from Blu-ray and convert them to Galaxy Tab friendly format like MP4.

There are many programs out there that allow you to make copies of your Blu-rays and let you view your Blu-ray movies with your tab. Which one is the best? Or which one is the most suitable for you? Most of you are likely familiar with the excellent Handbrake for ripping standard DVDs, but it does not rip or decrypt commercial Blu-rays and DVDs, so you’ll need to add an intermediate step or alternative solution.
