How to rip Blu-ray to MKV with H264 video and DTS-HD audio using Staxrip

Staxrip is certainly one of the best converting programs I have used, and it is among the tools I recommend to users for ripping a DVD. Of course it can also handle Blu-ray discs and it excels at this process too, giving you full control over your rip while still featuring a simple interface. In this article we will use Staxrip in order to rip a Blu-ray disc to an MKV file keeping the original DTS-HD audio.

How to rip Blu-ray to MP4 with H264 video using Handbrake

Handbrake is a pretty popular program as it has been around for quite a few years and as the number of visits to this guide can tell is among the most popular tools for DVD to H.264 conversion. The latest version added Blu-ray support, so we will use it in this guide in order to create a high definition 1080p MP4 file with H.264 video.

Blu-ray to MKV with optional multi-language audio/subtitle support

Since the tools used in Blu Ray back-ups are updating so frequently, I figured another guide couldn't hurt. My personal philosophy on back-up copies is that if the original disc had it, I want to have it on the back-up (at least as far as the main movie is concerned.) With that in mind, I have written this guide with optional steps to include all the language (dubs) and subtitles found on the original disc. Of course, if you just want the main movie and one audio stream, that's even easier and this guide can help you do that.

How to convert a Blu-ray disc into a .MKV 720P file

After reading a lot of material about that conversion in the last couple of days, i managed to complete my first successful convertion from BluRay to .MKV 720P file. I wasn't able to find a simple step by step guide from the beginning to the end, so i decided to make one. I hope to help other members that have difficutly in doing that kind of conversion, as i did.

How to Decrypt/store/play Blu-Ray and HD-DVD Discs

This guide will describe an extremely basic method of decrypting an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray disc, excluding all "unnecessary" audio tracks, creating an image (.iso) of your movie, and finally, playing it back. Please note that there are definitely multiple ways to do this and multiple programs that can be used. In addition, there are many many more steps that can be included for various processing needs, this guide is meant to cover just the absolute basics and hopefully help out those who are just starting out. This guide is broken up into 2 sections: the first is related to HD-DVD's and the second for Blu-Rays. UPDATE: TSMuxer now has the ability to open the "main movie" playist file (.mpls file) directly and mux all relevant movie tracks automatically.
