In theory, the quality of a blu-ray is way better than a dvd. But in the real world, some blu-ray is just a cheap dvd upscale conversion to dvd, lefting a quality even worst than the original file.

can u play a blu-ray on dvd player?

See here: Sony 1080p Blu-Ray Player @ Amazon.com

You CAN play DVDs on a Blu-Ray player though, most of the time.
