  1. Me Again (LOL)

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to give me advice on picking out a BD Burner. I really appreciate it!


    I am now in another quandary...so it goes. Anyway I installed the BD-Drive yesterday but don't know how to rip(Backup) any movies. I mean, I know what software it says to use around the web like Vidcoder and DVD-fab but I am lost as far as what to do exactly. It is allot to ask, I realize, but if you guys could help me out that would help allot. I dunno where to begin, and don't have much money to spend.


    I know this site (VideoHelp.com) has an awesome software section and when I was backing up my DVD's into video files (mostly .MKV at the end using handbrake) I was reliant upon the software in that section; BUT JUST AS MUCH, I relied on everyone here on the forum and received GREAT HELP.


    So, bottom line, I want to be able to backup my BR collection in the cheapest and easiest way, ripping them into MKV's, AVI's, or the like. At this point, however, I can honestly say that I don't even know how to decrypt them with any success.


    Like always, I am VERY THANKFUL for ANY HELP that ANYONE CAN OFFER!

    You can still use dvdfab to rip the blu-ray and shrink to mkv with handbrake.

    You could also just use MakeMKV if you don't want to shrink. Makemkv rips and just muxes(no video reconversion) the main movie to a single mkv(20-40GB).

  3. Pretty much what baldrick said. Rip them using dvdfab, then convert them to mkv/mp4 using handbrake. mkv is a good container format, but mp4 plays better on most software players, so you may want to see about converting your movies to mp4.

  4. Thanks Guys.here's the problem(s) I've encountered:


    1) I D/L the newest DVDFab From the tools/software section. But it isn't free to use the BR ripper feature on DVDfab after the trial, is it?


    2) Anyway, When I did try to do a BR rip w, Fab, it got to 99% then failed. In all fairness, however, I only tried one movie.


    3) What about Decryption? There are security blocks on BR's. Will Fab's BR Ripper make a Video_TS file including the decryption


    4) When I tried to use MakeMKV, It made a ton of folders in the output directory, but I coldnt find a vid file anywhere.


    Can someone walk me through this because it seems far tougher then it should be. I sincerely appreciate the help.

    Really, I just want a Video_TS file and then turn it in to a high quality vid file (Like MKV) with Handbrake. I don't want to have to pay for DVDFabI a, really new to this so please have patience w. me
    Thanks Guys

    4). I haven't had any problems with makemkv. It always make a single mkv.


    But you could also try anydvdhd. Test the trial at least. Insert the movie, right click on the anydvdhd tray icon and choose copy/rip to your hdd.

    I'm not sure you have the right version of DVDFab HD Decrypter. It is freeware for the basic version. It does lag a fair bit behind on decryption on newer Blu-rays, so try it on one that's been out for six months or more. You will rip the entire BD to one of your hard drives.

    You won't find a VIDEO_TS file anywhere. That's a DVD format. Look to the upper left on this page for 'WHAT IS' Blu-ray. Very different structure. The video/audio is contained in the 'STREAM' folder. It's already similar to a MKV. I just re-encode the video to a more compact form and also the audio to AC3. I do use RipBot for that instead of VidCoder/Handbrake. I use Vidcoder/Handbrake for DVD conversions.

    Depending on what output format you want and what size files you want, it can take a fair amount of time for conversions. My setup, about 3 - 4 hours. I run them overnight most times. Quality is still very good.
