Then burn onto Bluray disc (directly within the Notebook) to have physical copy for archiving & possible use in a Bluray player.
Burning to Blu-Ray for archive isn’t a bad idea, but I don’t think there is much support for Blu-Ray Authoring right now. Be sure you’re computer can burn Blu-Ray as well.
In the end, if you want to connect your laptop to a project for viewing, exporting your video in the H.264 codec will probably be fine. I’m sure Windows Media Player can play that format. If not, get Quicktime player. It’s free anyway.
