I tried this product to rip high quality audio from a music Blu-Ray disc and it always stopped 3 seconds short of the completed song when I tried to trim it. Most PS3/PSP options would not play on the final device.

Downloaded and worked just fine. Does take a long time to convert, but these are very large HD blu-ray files we are talking about, so just be prepared to do something else while conversion is taking place. The MP4 converted file played perfectly on a flash drive with my Sony blu-ray player.

Great giveaway - thank you very much!!!

The website doesn't say you need a BlueRay player??? Sweet jimminy christmas! That's because the software companies assume that people have a shred of something called common freaking sense! Some of you (Greg and Mike) need to go out and grow a freaking brain! Do it now before you download another freaking app!

BTW: Once you have installed and registered program, if you click 'Help>>update' you are taken to a page that offers retail program (with support,updates, re-intalls, etc.) for $24.50 (50% off regular $49.00). Decent deal if you decide this program is a keeper for you.

I recently built a new system and it was cheaper to by a Blu-Ray writer/re-writer with 3D support (~$30) than to buy a regular optical drive. I welcome these players and utilities. I'd like to see GOTD offer a BluRay player that offers 3D support as an alternative to the PowerDVD software that came with it, which is buggy and unreliable.

I'm going to ignore the ridiculous comments above about the need for a Blu-ray drive... I'm just surprised we haven't had all those comments about copyright.

Thanks to Sarsar for putting this in perspective, thanks also to GOTD and the software devs for offering us this gem.

Finally! Software for this job that seems to have got it right!

- Very simple interface, yet it allows you to perform advanced functions with the same simplicity. Basically, it gives you the options of using a huge range of built-in Codecs (no apparent facility for adding your own codecs) and customizing them to your needs, while also including some pre-customized profiles and explaining clearly what each of the above is normally used for.
- settings are given as numeric values OR high/medium/low quality OR "original". There is no indication of what the original values are. There is also no indication of how big the converted size will be until after conversion is started.
- It can work on the original disc in the drive, or on files copied from the original disc onto a hard drive. It is not intended to be used as a converter, so it cannot take eg. .avi files as input.
- User can choose what chapters etc. can be ripped via a simple summary. Includes choice of subtitles/audio streams/angle by chapter.
- There is an option for splitting video
- There is a player (unfortunately no full-screen option, and no audio mute option, though volume can be adjusted)
- snapshots can be taken and saved automatically
- Four languages: English, German, Japanese, Chinese (The German is cutely done, but genuine enough!)
- It uses (optionally) all cores, from my limited testing to about 50% capacity, so it won't weigh the system down. There is an option for number of running processes, but not for allocating priority of processes
- decoder type can be selected (CUDA, INTEL, SYSTEM)
- output is fast and good quality (depends of course on the settings chosen)
- the input files/chapters can be merged or converted to separate files
- the computer can be automatically shut down after conversion
- conversion can be cancelled and cancelling leaves a playable file

Unfortunately, some discs can't be decoded (this is probably country-code related: haven't got to the bottom of this yet, but there should be some notification system).

The devs have put a lot of thought into this interface and should be congratulated!

Me again. And, I was being serious in that I know of the need for a BR drive, but anyone who follows GAOTD knows that every time a BR package like this comes out and there is no BR drive requirement, neophytes are led to believe and often ask on this site if this program will now allow them to use BR disks on their DVD drive.I am s a computer consultant who has recommended this site to literally thousands around the world and MANY contact me with this question each time improper requirements are listed. So, please, vendors and GAOTD, post the proper requirements for your software offerings.

Installed fine on Windows Seven Ultimate x64. Ripped one episode from the Mad Men Season Five Blu-ray disc to "same resolution as input". The results looked pretty bad -- much worse than DVD quality. I expected better.

Whoever made the 'suggestion' that CPU usage should be increased obviously doesn't realize that BD-DVD read rate is probably the limiting factor not CPU cycles! A faster CPU does not make a faster application! Check all the other 'road-blocks', Ram speed, Internet speed, network Adapter speed, Wifi connectivity speed etc....

Installed and registered on Win 7 with no problems. Even though I don't have a BR reader/writer yet I thought I'd try it. I like the GUI, clean and uncluttered and it has a number of settings for the output files including the three that I would use, Archos tablet, BB and iPad. It seems REALLY fast compared to Win-X. It took just over 35 minutes to rip, convert and save a 1:46 DVD to Archos format. The resulting file was only 1.21 GB.

Just got done ripping Avatar for my Acer A500 in full 1080p resolution and let me say this is the best ripping software that I have tried so far. I would even be willing to buy this knowing how well it does work. Audio is in sync the only issue I have us it took 4 hours to rip this title.
Oh yea you can buy a Blue Ray burner for around $69.00 so stop complaining and buy something.

This is great, folks, install this TODAY free, you can get a Blu-ray drive anytime later in life.

It seems smartly programmed even though this is a program segment full of competition -- this seems fastest to load and control on screen, and has conversion utilities well flexible for almost any conversion, including saving and opening any video ISO or other video files, not "just" a Blu-ray ripper, but a video copier and re-formatter for any video disk or file -- very well done.

It installs quickly on most of my PCs -- XP and Win7-64 -- but fails to load it's libraries on one of my XP systems: the program should self-troubleshoot, but does not.

Does it need a Windows Media 11 updates for XP or something?

C'mon, PAVTube, pitch in here, okay?

Can someone who has installed this software, PLEASE tell us what options are available for 3D Ripping. Surprisingly, the developers website does not clearly define the output formats, like Side-by-Side or Over-and Under. A discussion of Anaglyph is mentioned, however, I think the reference is simply regarding 3D technology, not what the program is capable of doing.

@Greg: I absolutely agree. I cannot believe all the items they failed to mentioned were required. Just a few examples: a computer, a blu-ray disc, electricity, etc. I tried using this software with my toaster oven and slice of bread and not only did it not work, but I'm pretty sure, even if I had electricity, all I would've gotten is a slice of toast. What a scam!

@Greg: Not sure if you are being funny or serious. Would you also expect programs that work with a printer to come with warning that a printer is needed? Or warning for music player application about speakers needed to actually hear the music?

Luckily, the manufacturers of a popular Superman costume included a sticker on the package: "Warning: Superman Costume Does Not Enable Flight" so your Halloween should be safe. :-)

Not Bad. I tested a 21mins video from a BD, it's about 10 minutes faster than my another Blu-ray ripping application with the same convert settings. It also works in my Windows 8 Pro, but the video card acceleration was not on by default.

If you want add subtitle, you have to click each video you will convert and choose the subtitle. There is no globe setting for subtitle.

The playlist is not correct on my test disc. I haven't any play/rip application can get right order on this disc yet.

Thanks GOTD and Pavtube!

For those wondering (as I did) what the difference is between the GOTD offering of Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper and the "Featured Title" called Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate, here is a link to the publisher's website describing the differences (they are minimal):

I've wasted a lot of money on DVD and Blu-ray rippers and copiers. Most of them appear to end successfully but the result is not always good. The sound is often out of sync with the picture. I recommend DVDfab, which can be pretty expensive, but not compared to wasting your time on products that only appear to work.

So go buy a Blu-ray reader. They aren't that expensive. Replace your CD/DVD player/burner. There are probably lots of Blu-ray readers available used because people take the player out to replace it with a Blu-ray burner. If you can't afford this, stay away from Blu-ray.

So far no evaluations of the product or how well it works or doesn't. Just complaints that it needs a blu-ray player to work. (duh!)
If you have a need to rip blu-ray disks, for heavens sake, buy a drive. They aren't really that expensive.

Well, I downloaded this, installed it and then converted the only Blu-ray I currently own. It took about 35 minutes on my system. I now have a folder that apparently contains a movie. VLC had some errors it didn't know what to do with, but the movie eventually played fine. So, this worked for me. I don't have any other software to compare it to, but this seems to work okay. Didn't use any options, just convert.

Works well. HP Elitebook 8440p, i7, win7 pro 64, internal Sony Optiarc BD-5730S BD drive.
Easy registration, thank you.
I like that you can combine into one file. I also like that it can rip 3d into 2d. About the same speed as Ashampoo BD ripper. I will keep it.

And do you really need help understanding that in order to play/rip a BD you actually need a BD player?? These are the people that need to be reminded that the $5 iPhone case does not include iPhone, or that the contents of their coffee cup is hot.

It says the cost is $49, but their homepage says $34.3 with the $49 crossed off.

It does provide some interesting edits, such as crop, split, watermark and more.

It's 3D conversion seems rather anemic. It let's you convert to 3D using red-blue or red-green conversion. For comparison, my favorite blu-ray ripper, Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper, allows side-by-side and top-and-bottom (half and full), which I can use to view on my 3D TV. Got this for free also, from some giveaway.

This program does provide quite a list of output formats.

I have found no program that allows one to rip a 3D blu-ray to 3D, but may that just can't be done.

All-in-all, you can't beat the price, for somethings that works.

Perhaps it's not as obvious to people with no technical knowledge since the discs look the same, but Blu-ray discs can only be read with a blue laser. DVD drives have a red laser for reading DVDs, and an infrared laser for reading CDs. They don't have a blue laser. It's physically impossible for them to read Blu-ray discs.

Haven't tried it yet, but it looks good from the point of view that it can rip 3D blu-rays (note the spelling!) to 2D blu-rays or DVDs because 3D BRs do not always come with 2D versions. It will also rip to formats for iPad/iPhone for example.

Definitely sounds useful for people who have or are going to get a BR reader and especially if you have 3D BRs.

WHY would you try to use a product that says: Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper if you DO NOT have a BR device, let alone, write a review of the product.

What gets me: People that trash a product if you can not / or don't use it. Where does the product description say you DO NOT need a BR drive to use the product.

If you are a computer user, you should KNOW what equipment is in / with / can connect / on YOUR computer, internal and external. Where is it written that a CD Rom drive or a DVD drive can read a Blu-ray disc?

I have had a BR read / write for 2 years, so I am going to try the software. Besides it is FREE.

Understand the concept...........FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the ==== FREE ==== software works for me, then I am going to look at their OTHER products. Do you think these people give away their product for no reason? They do it for you to try their product, and if you like it, you MIGHT ==( purchase )== one of their OTHER products.

Really, people? You're complaining because you don't have a Blu-Ray reader yet you clicked on the GOTD link for a BR program? You're supposed to know what your hardware is BEFORE you click on the link. If nothing else, download it since it is free and save it for later. BTW, the program clearly says it will read DVDs.

I downloaded it and tested it WITH A REGULAR (recent release) DVD and--guess what?--it works just fine. I'm a big Aiseesoft fan, but this is a pretty decent alternative for the price (free today).

Dont know why Blurays would be so elusive these days. They can be had often for under $50. I grabbed one for 39,only because I needed and additional DVD/CD drive and figured for 15bucks more-why not . IMO common sense should always be listed under "Minimum system requirements" for all of these downloads. When GAOTD offers up programs for Macs-would anyone download it thinking their PC was suddenly going to become a Mac? That said-does anyone have any usefull info/review about this program?

The software developers are not trying to con us.

They are not trying to hide it. They assume consumers have at least the minimum intelligence to know that we cannot read a BluRay disc with a DVD optical drive.

This is considered so basic that they do not have to specially highlight to us. Guess USA slang is to call such a "no brainer" issue.

Just like when DVD was new fangled, the software developers did not have to specially tell us that DVD disc cannot be read with a CD optical drive.

The software may work with DVD optical drives to read DVDs, i.e. it is downward compatible.

Some other BluRay rippers given away in this / other websites recently.
Not all users have BluRay drives.
BluRay blanks are expensive.
Original copyrighted movies on BluRay discs are expensive.
Some of us are satisfied with DVD quality and there is no urgent need to go for BluRay.

If you have a use for BluRay, take this giveaway; if not then pass.

It is commons sense that if you don't have the hardware, that you cannot rip the media. However, it also says that you can rip from the IFO or VOB files. If you can find a ripped BD image on the internet, or download from the media publisher's website, you can then use those files to rip the content from those downloaded files. Even if you download an image (.iso, .daa, etc.) you can mount it using tools availabe on the net for virtual drives, like POWERISO.In that case, this could be useful.
My 2 cents.
