New Fire TV Blu-ray Playback-Play Blu-ray with Amazon Fire TV 2 via Plex

“Can plex stream Blu-ray to Fire TV (2015 Version)? My wife has quite a few Blu-rays I don't really want using space on my server so would prefer to keep them on Blu-ray. Is there a way to stick a Blu-ray into my window 7 based plex media server, then view it on one of my new Fire TV without the need to use something like handbrake prior? I realise Blu-ray players are very cheap, but that's not what I am wanting to achieve as its another remote and another box to have in front of the telly. Would be ideal if the Fire TV 2 could also be a Blu-ray player also. If plex can't do this can anything else anyone knows of?”

To play Blu-ray in Fire TV via Plex, a Blu-ray ripping program is needed. Here Dimo Video Converter Ultimate is highly recommended to help you rip Blu-ray movies to Fire TV formats (H.263, H.264, MPEG4-SP, VC1) with fast speed and high output video quality. In addition to Fire TV supported video format, it can also rip and convert Blu-ray to all other regular video formats like MPEG, FLV, AVI, WMV, 3GP, MOV, lossless mkv, etc. Even backing up Blu-ray to ISO is supported. If you are using Amazon Fire TV to view Blu-ray files with Plex on Mac (including 10.12 Sierra), try Dimo Video Converter Ultimate for Mac to convert Blu-ray format to use over Fire TV.
