Question about blueray and my video card

I have a film that is 37gigabytes. It was ripped from a friends blueray disc.

To me the film doesn't warrant the 37gigabyte disc space. Am I getting the exact same blue ray quality from this rip as my friend when he puts his disc into his blueray player? I'm just curious because the film itself isn't very special in terms of quality.

I have a GTX260 btw if that matters.

I believe this monitor is hd. It's a 27" samsung 1920x1080 monitor. I just installed powerdvd and played the movie I think it looks a little better, I can't really tell though.

It, really shouldn't be that large of a file. 37gigs? It should be 4gig tops.

The movie in question is enemy at the gates. It is in a .m2ts format and is 37gigs. Not exactly sure how long it is because VLC player doesn't show the length of the movie.

Okay I did a side by side comparison of the same movie using VLC player and PowerDVD player.

The movie looks a bit darker when using the PowerDVD player.

Does this mean the PowerDVD player is playing it as a Blueray file and the VLC isn't? It's the same file I used for both.

I think its how you ripped/encoded the file, which is probably why it looks bad too.

The file is surely a direct rip, it isn't compressed. That is why it is so large. When you play it back it should be the exact same quality as the disc it came from.
The difference in how it looks between players is just because they are different software with different default settings. I'm sure on both you can adjust the image brightness/contrast/ect. to your liking.

That is how much space it takes up on the Bluray disc. The file size is not odd, it is simply uncompressed.
If his CPU or card couldn't handle playing it then it would stutter but it would not affect image quality.

I'll go out on a limb here.
Disk Sizes:
DVD single sided 4.2Gb
DVD dS 8.4Gb
BluRay 37Gb ?

Blu Ray disk hold more data for higher quality video ( more info sent to screen)
I'll venture to guess that if you want to see the quality you need to rip a BluRay disk and put into a player.
Just an opinion here since I don't have a BluRay recorder.

Blurays can actually hold 25 gigs per layer.
