Blu-ray authoring can be done via most NLE. Sony Movie Studio Platinum and Powerdirector Ultra are good, low-cost ones

A Decent burner ( and there is a lot of rubbish out there) will cost about £150 sterling. In order to justify using a BR disc you need to burn dozens of average size videos onto it. At the end of the day BR is really only cost effective as an archive or for a film length video ( which is going to take hours to burn!).

I can see no difference in quality between the quality of my PC copy and the USB memory stick copy. What is really good is that I can keep adding videos to the stick ( I get about 20 videos on a 16GB stick which costs about £12 sterling) and when it comes playing them it is a simple menu driven selection. far easier than using either DVD or BR discs.

I have an LG blu-ray player and it also plays assorted media of a USB flash drive. I also have a WDTV Live which you can plug flash drives or USB external hard drives etc in and it will also play a lot of different format media.
Also, a lot of new TVs have USB ports and can play media directly.
Youtube should give reasonable quality and Vimeo can be used to get higher quality video. Both can accept 1920x1080p (and higher). They are easily the easiest way to store and share videos as your videos can be viewed on computers, new TVs (with internet connection) and mobile devices.

I use a Raspberry Pi to watch any movies I've got stored on my NAS. it will play 1080 no problem,
If you cant get a network cable to the Pi, just go wifi.
