Ripping your Blu-Ray Collection to M3U8 Playback

It’s a quick-and-easy way to get content from your Blu-ray Disc to M3U8 video format playback.

The .m3u8 file name extension refers to the M3U8 file type, a Unicode version of the standard format of M3U playlists. The M3U8 and M3U formats are identical, the only difference is that the M3U8 format uses the Unicode encoding standard (UTF-8, 8 bits) instead of Latin-1 encoding.

The M3U8 files are capable of handling all UTF-8 character types. A .m3u8 file is a M3U8 playlist, a simple Unicode-encoded text file with references to local and / or online media resources in a certain syntax (the same as the M3U format).

In addition to their original purpose of organizing the reading of locally stored media, .m3u and .m3u8 files are often used by online media broadcasting services as pointers to their channels.
