If I download a blu ray movie onto a flash drive can I play it on a blu ray player?

Q: If I get a blu ray player and download a blu ray movie and then put it on my flash drive and play it through my blu ray player will it play it like a blu ray DVD?

My TV is a Sony BRAVIA 40″ 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV** (KDL40EX500). Just wondering cause I can’t seem to get a clear answer on this.

    Yes you can download a blu ray to flash drive.

    However, most usb drives only support the FAT file format which will allow a file only up to 4.0 GB in size.

    What that means is you will not be able to play a movie on full Blue ray quality as the file size of a blue ray is usually well beyond 4GB in size. I watch movies on my PS3 all the time from flash drive that are about 3-4GB in size and the quality is very good.
