Can a blu ray disk image be virtually mounted to play a blue ray movie (like ISO images can)?

If so then using what software?

I just want to know for sure before I delicate my slow connection to downloading a huge blu ray file.

I don't see what the upvotes are for. This is common sense. – Frank Dec 12 '13 at 6:18

If you have the Blu Ray image file on your hard disk then tools like Daemon Tools can mount it.

If you download the Blu-Ray image, you can indeed mount it like Sathya suggested with Daemon Tools. However, it's worth checking if your PC has HD-Graphics capability. If it doesn't, the Blu-Ray image will not play properly. If that is so, you should download the DVD-image instead of the Blu-Ray, it is playable on your PC AND it would save you about 10-15 GBs of download on your "delicate slow connection".
