Blu-Ray discs -- rippable?

We're thinking of getting a Blu-Ray player, and so I'm wondering -- can Blu-Ray discs be ripped into .avi files for vidding?  If so, what software would be needed.  [For regular DVDs I use DVD Decrypter and Total Video Converter.]

YouTube High Quality -- random?

Does anyone know why some vids show up on YouTube with the "high quality" option and others don't?  Even though the quality of my source material and uploaded files is pretty consistent, not all of my YouTube vids get the "high quality" option.
