If your media player cannot read .mkv but recognizes .mp4, use XenonMKV.

To convert .mkv to BD/DVD/SVCD, use tsMuxeR, multiAVCHD, MakeMKV. The last two do the reverse too.

The Blu-Ray movie discs you buy generally have at least one, but often several methods of DRM. The way that they work is complicated. There are several playlists [sometimes 100+], often many are fake [as DRM], & they list the .m2ts audio/video files to play & in what order, because a movie may be split across several .m2ts files. Java programming, often with its own DRM, controls all this while also giving you menus & special features. Managing all that is why you need a Blu-Ray player, rather than a run-of-the-mill media player app, to watch them. Or you can skip all that by taking the movie(s) out of the Blu-Ray format.

The video itself is usually AVC/H.264, but can be VC1 [used rarely], or mpg2 [usually only used for consumer DIY projects]. Audio is often DTS, which many people will convert because while most players can handle AVC, not so many can manage DTS. While you can have AVC video by itself, very few apps [& probably no players] will handle it that way because there's no timing info etc. -- instead it's usually stuck inside a .mp4 or MKV container along with the audio. If you use the MKV container you can also bundle in the original, graphics based subtitles along with chapter info. For .mp4 the subs are usually OCRed into .srt text files -- many players [including many for Android] will display .srt subs.

The 2 main questions IMHO are if it's legal where you live to back up the Blu-Ray discs you buy, & if so, do you want the video as-is or do you want to make the files smaller? If you use the files as-is you get every bit of the original quality, but you're also talking about storing 15-30GB per movie. You can re-compress & optionally resize that video to make the files smaller. Blu-Ray movies are generally 1920 x 1080 [1080p], but 720p or 1440 x 1080 can work surprisingly well. [You can fit a movie in HD at 1440 x 1080 on a DVD, though you'll probably want to use a dual layer DVD.]

If you want to recompress video to AVC with the highest possible quality I think the consensus is use the x264 encoder set to one of its highest quality settings & spend a day [or days] encoding. Or you can use the Leawo Blu-ray to MKV Converter, getting the job done Much sooner at a IMHO more sane quality level with less hassle.

RE: alternatives... Fengtao [DVDFab] was sued in the US by the company that sells one of the DRM technologies or methods commonly used on Blu-Ray discs. One of the end results is that you'll find it harder to find any Blu-Ray decrypting software if you're in the US. Once you manage that there are free tools to strip out the audio, video, & subs, as well as convert them -- you can do it as separate steps or find more all-in-one type software. While some people prefer that route, I'm not aware of any *practical* advantages vs. using today's GOTD, Leawo Blu-ray to MKV Converter.

A note on players: If you plan to play your video on a HDTV do a bit of research 1st. If playing the video will rely on your home network, there may be bandwidth [bit rate] restrictions, same as if you want to use many of the player boxes available. Long story short you may Have to recompress the video to get the bit rate within those limitations. If you plan on using a Blu-Ray player [software or stand-alone hardware], one DRM that cannot be stripped out really is Cinavia, which is embedded in the audio.

I've used the prior version since provided by GOTD.

Not the best, not the worst. However, it performed in a number of situations where others were stimied by DRM.

Controls and set-up very familiar to those who like Aieesoft and others seen here regularly.

Would be nice if it could make an .ISO of the disk.

Converting Blu-ray to .MKV is good, .MP4 would be more universally playable.
But mainly I would like to see decrypt and save to .ISO so I could have a backup of the disks I've bought and not have to worry about anyone scratching, losing or chewing them.

@Mom's Basement: Converting Blu-ray to ISO is the function of another of this firm's products: Leawo Blu-ray Copy. As Karl pointed out, today's giveaway has a single specialized function: repackaging Blu-ray data into a Matroska(*.MKV) container file.

Guys you don't understand what I mean when make it portable off line or web base or 2 combine. Software developers could capture email of all interested people. Even see who use software. Why download and installed the software just to delete it with reboot. To much effort and I'm not on there payroll (lol) and in some country's data still pretty expensive. Enough said smart would already know what I mean.

product page says: "- Convert Blu-ray to MKV format with lossless quality."
if you want lossless quality, just mux/remux with mkvmerge tool(MKV Toolnix) or ffmpeg. no need to convert and time wasting. MKV is a container. not video codec. if video reencode/converted, result: lossy (except some lossless codecs/formats. like FLAC,APE,wavpack,... etc.)

This bluray converter actually comes in handy to me! Just grabbed the program and installed it on my laptop (Win 7 64bit), works fine and tested with my bluray movie Let's Be Cops. The DVD to MKV converting progress is flawless, but IMOP the converting speed a bit inferior to WinX Blu-ray Decrypter (alas, invalid for some unknown reason). I'm using their WinX DVD Ripper, deadly fast, ripping all my encrypted DVD movies in a matter of minutes. Anyway I'll keep this bluray converter for backup. :-D Thx GOTD and Leawo!

This is a BLU-RAY converter. You are telling us you are converting DVDs.
Nothing beats WinX, but I have Leawo Copy and IT IS GOOD.
But, I will try this one in a sandbox.

Reply   |   Comment by SoftwareBabe  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-5)

SoftwareBabe, this is not just a Blu-Ray Converter. In the description it says "for Blu-ray/DVD to MKV" & "and CSS-DVD discs to convert Blu-ray/DVD movies to MKV formats with lossless quality. For better movie experience, this Blu-ray/DVD to MKV converter allows to retain multiple subtitles and audio tracks from source Blu-ray/DVD contents, preview subtitles and audio tracks, and play back source Blu-ray/DVD movies with ease". So it can also be used to convert DVD's to MKV.

Just want to add. I do agree with SoftwareBabe. WinX is a great program.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.3 Pro 64 bit system. A lot of registry changes and the yytool:
http://i.imgur.com/eGcBvX3.png

A (Chinese – Digitally signed as Shenzen Moyea Software) company without name and address. A reliable producer of all kind of software around video.

We had had the previous version Leawo Blu-ray to MKV Converter 2.0 on April 25, 2014. Here are the old reviews:
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/blu-ray-to-mkv-converter-2-0/

The software is from September 2014, the .dll's are from 2013 and 2014.

The claim: "Watch Blu-ray movies at will with no use of Blu-ray players" does not say, that you need a BlueRay player to play the disk - or you have already the content of the disk on your computer.

A simple resizeable interface opens, in the option you can disable the update check, define a thumbnail size, switch the language and rename the output file, if it already exist. No ther options. The output will be .MKV.

A short test converted very quick a DVD. The output a .MKV file was with no visible changes to the original file.

Does what it claims. If you need a single task (MKV) converter, you can take this.

Uninstalled via reboot.

Hi Karl, thanks for your review,
I´m not sure, if these yytool.exe files will harm my computer, my privacy or ...
Shouldn´t we delete these or what would you recommend ?
Appreciate your answer!

I don't like to install all this software on my computer. Do anybody know a good program to make the programs portable in some way

Reply   |   Comment by free test  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-61)

You don't have to install all the software. Just pick what's useful for you. Alternatively, if you want to try something, you could use a virtual system, like Karl does. That way, you can delete what you don't like without a trace.

"Do anybody know a good program to make the programs portable in some way"

You can research & try apps like Cameyo, which oversimplified basically install & uninstall an app when you use it. Many video apps out of China have a very low impact however, so that sort of thing may not be worth the time/effort. With today's GOTD, as Karl mentions there's the AppKey folder/service -- you could try to skip that, though I'm unsure what the results would be long term.
