Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

I have to agree with #17, and I sometimes wonder if people actually try the software given away here before bashing it and offering alternatives. Aiseesoft software supports AMD APP and NVIDIA® CUDA™ GPU Processing acceleration technology and lists the supported cards on their website. DRM? well, if it is legal in your country try it out - ("Support the latest Blu-ray movies" under features might be a hint) That's two of the "BIG CONS".

The last so called "BIG CON" regarding re-burning to dvd is also the same issue with most of the offered alternatives. In a big chunk of the world it is now illegal to sell a single product with the intent of allowing end users to break drm AND do multiple reburns to media with the potential for distribution.

Depending on the software's country of origin, it may or may not break encryption, the vendor may or may not mention it as a selling point if it does, all depends on the local laws and laws where they are trying to sell it.
The most common sales method I have seen is to sell a ripping tool to allow you to "back up" your own personal disks to your own personal harddrive... Then sell a tool to convert formats... sell a burning tool... sell a copy tool... idunno, but there must be a reason they are usually sold as separate tools.
A little research before bashing a program is respectful to GOTD and above all respectful to the users that may trust and respect your input.

Thanks for the opportunity GOTD, I had a look, but I just don't buy enough plastic media anymore to have a long term use for this program.

#17 I think that this is valuable feedback, not just for the software producers, but for GAOTD it'self, and GAOTD's users.

For producers, if they are willing to listen, it can tell them what features or additions to a program could change an OK or so-so program an industry leader.

For GAOTD, this kind of feedback can help GAOTD help future producers avoid some of the same troubles. Also it can help GAOTD select software that better suit their users needs, wants and preferences.

For GAOTD users, this kind of feedback can help them make informed decisions about what software best suits their needs.

This is just as important as those who complain about the "regular price" being too high, and those who compare the giveaway to available free (and sometimes paid) software.

It is just this sort of feedback that is most valuable. I'm sure that getting only "Love it!" and "Invaluable!" feedback feels good, but it will do nothing to improve your product or help you meet as-of-yet unmet consumer needs and desires.

Slightly different software tool? than last time , registration went more smoothly, don't forget to uncheck the auto updates, this time it stays unchecked; unlike the previous giveaway kept resetting itself to give short shelf life. testing this now..

I wish people would save our time by not posting to just let us know they don't need this sort of software, and can't understand why anyone would. Do you guys go on car sites, and let everyone know that you don't see the need to drive anywhere?

Personally, I'm grateful for the freebie.

Why bother with Blu-Ray?...
There are all sorts of reasons to dislike Blu-Ray, but for many [most?] people it remains the only way to watch a movie in really nice quality HD -- that said, in our experience most movies on Blu-Ray aren't any better than an up-sampled DVD. There are also lots of reasons to make a copy of any Blu-Ray discs you buy -- providing it's legal where you live -- including protecting your investment as Blu-Ray discs seem more easily damaged than DVDs or CDs.

Now there are 2 hurtles to making a copy of your Blu-Ray discs -- the major hurtle of course is the usually quite heavy DRM, but very often you must also re-encode the movie so it will fit on a 25 GB BD disc or a DVD... you can buy 50 GB blank discs, but they're still more expensive [$4 - $15 each at Newegg this morning]. And yes, while your mileage will vary, Google & you'll find plenty of people who feel they can maintain the original quality [or come Very close to it] putting Blu-Ray format video on a [often dual layer] DVD.

Why MKV?...
On a Blu-Ray disc the [usually AVC/H.264] video's in one or more .m2ts container files, which can be a hassle to work with -- lots of software won't handle .m2ts, at least without errors like dropped frames &/or audio sync problems. The MKV format is superior as an alternative -- AVI is iffy, MOV most often won't work, & less software handles .264 than .m2ts. MultiAVCHD is the leading free app to put your video into the Blu-Ray format so you can burn it [it's also more popular than a Lot of payware alternatives], and it likes importing MKV. [Once you convert (re-encode) the video .avi, .mov, mp4 etc. may be fine.]

Aiseesoft BD to MKV Copy does just that, copies the video to your hard drive. You can use the MKV as-is, since there are several nice players that'll handle it very well, or you can use that as the starting point to a conversion. Working with video means a lot of trade-offs or compromises, with most every plus accompanied by a minus. That includes the software you use. Generally easier & faster mean lower quality results that don't always match what you really wanted. But easier & faster are easier & faster, so if that's what you prefer you might be happier with Aiseesoft's Blu-Ray Ripper Ultimate -- otherwise you can probably do better using BD to MKV Copy & trading some of your time & effort for more ideal results. [That's not BTW saying anything bad about Aiseesoft's ripper, but just rippers & converters in general.]

[Re]encoding Blu-Ray video...
If you're re-encoding to a smaller frame size AVC/H.264 to stick on a cell phone many of the ffmpeg-based converters [and rippers] out of China do a fine job quickly. For tablets I prefer Nero's Recode. If you're encoding for DVDs you want an app that will let you do variable bit rate, & in the US [or anywhere they use NTSC], ideally that app will also let you use something called pulldown, keeping the actual video at 24 fps [you'll often see 23.976, which may or may not be interchangeable depending on the app] & inserting flags to repeat frames to = 29.976 fps. [Note: Research (Google) & you'll find some people swear by constant bit rate DVD video -- they've just never used a decent variable bit rate encoder. When you've got a file size limit, it makes good, logical sense to allocate a higher bit rate (& larger amount of data) to the scenes that need it most. Likewise you'll find folks that are ignorant of or maybe scoff at pulldown -- why make the file larger by writing/storing duplicate frames when with a simple instruction (flag) included in the file, the player will simply show the same frames twice?]

Encoding video for a Blu-Ray player can be a bit of an extra hassle depending on the software you use to put your audio & video into the format you'll burn to disc. Long story short, your choice of Blu-Ray authoring app may lock you into using that app's encoder. Lots of Blu-Ray authoring software includes compliance testing, intended to make sure your video will work on most every Blu-Ray player in existence -- if you use one of those apps [rather than multiAVCHD] most often it will insist on encoding your video, even if you just got done encoding it using something else. Worse, these same authoring apps often limit you to using certain templates [profiles] for Blu-Ray that are included in the program, or else it'll again re-encode your video, & they may prevent or limit changing any Blu-Ray template settings.

If you decide to use multiAVCHD, or some other authoring app that doesn't include compliance checking, the leading free AVC/H.264 encoder is X264, which is included in ffmpeg. Encoding HD AVC video is slow no matter what soft & hardware you use, & X264 includes a setting that trades quality for speed. Software *X* may set X264 to encode at max speed, sacrificing quality, while app *Y* takes the opposite approach, favoring quality over speed. You can access the full range of speed settings if you use X264 from the command line, or if you use one of the X264 front ends [GUIs] like Avanti, but if you'd rather use a video converter app you'll have to compare them to see what works for you, what gives you the quality levels you're after at a speed you can live with.

GPU assist...
Graphics processors specialize in a different sort of calculations than CPUs, so they can be a great help crunching numbers on Wall St., cracking passwords, & sometimes processing video. When it comes to video, using a GPU is both finicky & tricky... Say you have 2 PCs, both with the same hardware, GPU assist may work on one, while it fails using the same software on the 2nd -- trying to figure out why is the subject of many, Many online discussions &/or threads. Some things are done faster by the GPU rather than the CPU, but you very often sacrifice quality -- the quality loss can be even greater if/when the software is written to use maximum speed vs. quality. And here's the tricky part -- reading, decoding the video, then splitting the processing between the CPU & GPU, then writing the results to disk creates bottlenecks, so GPU assist may take a load off the CPU, but may or may not do anything to increase the overall speed of a video conversion. Whether it's worth it or not depends on your hardware, installed software, the original or source video, & the app you're using. Bear in mind that just reading [decoding] 1080p video is no easy task, so a bit of [often DirectX] GPU assist there can be as helpful, maybe even more so, as an assist encoding that video... pay attention to overall quality & speed as you try out & compare software & settings -- GPU-Z may show an encoding app *really* using your GPU, but how long the job actually takes & its quality level is what's important.

FWIW I use an Intel-based board that includes Virtu, & as possible use ffdshow & LAVFilters for their use of Intel's OpenCL. What that means is that hopefully video software will use the graphics portion of my CPU to assist decoding/playing HD video, along with my ATI graphics card's OpenCL drivers for their assist processing & encoding that video. I don't think anything's faster than using Intel's OpenCL but capabilities are limited. When everything works together it's fast [the fastest I've seen anyway], but it's also broken several times towards the end of last year -- I'm afraid to change anything without a full backup -- & compatibility problems are expected [e.g. I have to install the LAVFilters for some jobs, then uninstall them for others]. And I've been pretty lucky -- LOTs of video folks are pulling their hair out because of GPU assist. Just a bit of a reality check to balance all the hype.

Hello GOTD and Aiseesoft! I am using Aiseesoft's BD to MKV Ripper v. 6.3.22 from a previous giveaway - can you highlight the differences between that program and today's offering? THAT product does a great job and does support NVIDIA GPU acceleration. Thanks as always for a great site!

Limited. I guess if your running your own media server and wanted to put your "vast" supply of BD's on your hard drive to enjoy on your home theater, this might be a nice pro to have. I use MP4 formats and avi because I can port my drive to other devices (Roku) for example. But untill you can put a MKV file on an ext hard drive and it becomes a standard, it's just another conversion program and they have become a dime a dozen. My goto is Aiseesoft's total media converter Platinum. As with all Aiseesoft's programs, easy to use and they do what they are designed for.

Well..have you ever noticed that whenever an AISEESOFT product is released here it scores a very high GAOTD user rating in a blink of an eye? This sounds very suspicious to me....

For instance, this GAOTD is no bad but it definitely doesn't deserve 71% THUMBS UP since it doesn't bypass any DRM protection out there and above all it doesn't support NVIDIA and AMD GPU acceleration, which is a BIG CONS for me. Besides that, as rightly noticed by Ashraf, with this tool you are not allowed to reburn any ripped Blu-rays movie into a new DVD and this is another BIG CONS for me because I don't like the idea of being forced to fill up the HD of my PC of huge movie and video files.

For all of these reasons I don't give it a THUMBS UP!

Of course this GAOTD is not able to convert video formats other than MKV, but I don’t see this as a con because MKV format has many advantages compared to other formats (to AVI or MPEG for instance), such as the fact that it’s OPEN SOURCE and supports menus and subtitles tracks, not to mention that it also supports virtually any video &audio format out there and can be played by almost any kind of video player nowadays (PotPlayer, VLC etc…).

I like this company and its products but I think they are trying to sell the same application with some functionalities enabled or disabled with name that is a combination of words:
total, copy, converter, ripper, video, media, platinium, ultimate

This looks EXACTLY the same as Leawo Blu-ray to MKV Converter http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/leawo-blu-ray-to-mkv-converter/
so this ain't much good for me!

If they could make compressed mkv files (say 10GB) instead of a lossless 30GB file, they would be perfect for me and my Nexus 7.

Download and install on my window XP desktop successfully.
Did not test it yet because I don't have my blu-ray drive at home. Just look at the software in general and the developer's description. It is a nice blu-ray backup tool for users that can keep the original audio track and subtitles even 7.1 audio and 5.1 audio. I think Aiseesoft is a nice software provider that always provides their software free on GOTD. I have their last giveaway total video converter ultimate. It is a nice software.
Thank you very much GOTD and Aiseesoft.

Download, install and active smoothly on my laptop, windows 7, 64 bits
Try the simplest way to copy my Blu-ray movie DARK NIGHT RISES to MKV file. It is still copying. So far so good.

Pros:
1. Keep all the audio track and subtitles from Blu-ray Disc to MKV file.
2. Allow users choose the audio track and subtitle also
3. Simple and clear interface
4. Support Multi languages, English, German, Japanese and French.

Cons:
1. Need more skins
2. Support DVD to MKV
3. Allow users to pass the promo code

In general, Aiseesoft BD to MKV Copy is a nice software to use, however, till now it is still working for copying my moive. I will play the mkv files after it finish the copy. I have used several Aiseesoft software from GOTD and they work well for me. If you have many Blu-ray movies to backup into video file, you'd better to backup them into mkv files with multi audio tracks and subtitles to choose. Great one. I will keep it.
Thanks GOTD and Aiseesoft. Always bring us great software.
