However there are some high quality MP4 format videos (or DivX AVIs) that are great to look at that are close to full Blu Ray quality if files are not too compressed. Look great on a 27 inch computer monitor.

Adrian - blu-rays are encoded in either H.264 (mp4-part 10) or VC-1, @ the 1920x1080 resolution.   Most of the blu-ray standard is just conventions around authoring so that set top players can reliably handle them.   There's no reason mp4 or other formats can't match it or exceed it in terms of video or audio quality.

It is common to apply higher compression rates to files that are transferred around to get the byte size down, but that's just a choice.
