BDtoAVCHD is a free tool to create AVCHD discs from Blu-Ray or HD MKV files. As output we get the folder structure ready to burn to a DVD5 or DVD9. The AVCHD format allows playback the same type of content that a Blu-Ray and holding high definition (1080p) but on DVD5 or DVD9 media. It is ideal for backing up Blu-Ray with much smaller size and maintaining high quality. The recorded discs obtained are compatible with almost any Blu-Ray player and PS3. Also can convert Blu-Ray to MKV and Blu-Ray 3D to MKV 3D SBS (side-by-side).

All features


Finds the main .m2ts file for the movie by just selecting the BDMV folder or Blu-Ray root.
Extract all information from the audio tracks, video and subtitles: length, language, format, etc.
Extract chapter information or allows to add it.
Select default audio track based on the language preferences and most appropriate criteria for the best quality but can also be set manually.
Calculates the video bitrate to fill the DVD5 / DVD9 (most of the times gets filled between 99-100%).
Converts audio (only if necessary): PCM to AC3, DTS-HD MA to DTS Core, DTS to AC3, etc.
Detect delays in the original audio tracks and transfers them to the final job.
Recompress the video using x264 64-bit if the computer supports it.
Do not use external codecs like avisynth or ffdshow or Haali splitter in the process of video conversion.
We can select a forced subtitle track is active by default when playing the disc.
Allows to program multiple conversions in the queue and execute them one after another automatically.
Multitasking: be can add new jobs in the queue while processing others.
Various output sizes: DVD5 / DVD9 / USB 4GB / BD-25 and Custom.
Ability to create a BD-25 without re-compressing video (BDRemux).
MKV as alternate output: allows to convert Blu-Ray to MKV recoding the video or without recoding (BDremux).
3D ready: from Blu-Ray 3D we can get a AVCHD 3D or MKV 3D (side-by-side/top-bottom).
MVC encoding: ability to shrink 3D Blu-Ray to BD25/BD9 maintaining 3D MVC format (Intel Quick Sync encoder).
Ability to encode MKV's using x265/HEVC codec.

@Yanta:

In order the program can calculate bitrate correctly when DTS-HD/TrueHD audio is selected is necessary press "Scan Bitrates" button and wait to finish 100% before add job in queue.

The feature exists and works fine. Use it!

I really don't like posting negative reviews of free software. But there comes a time when authors don't address bugs that it becomes necessary. In general authors of free programs do a fantastic job with their programs and they should be commended for their willingness to donate their time to others.

This program however, has a really frustrating bug - it can't get a bit rate correct to save it's life!

I've been using this tool since 2.4.5, I've posted an earlier review here about the issue, and I've contacted the author via his website, and gotten nowhere. Were it not for AVCHDCoder's requirement to use Java I would have dropped this program by now.

With HD/MA, TrueHD etc it NEVER gets a bit rate correct the first time. It will create output that doesn't fit on a 25gb Blu-ray disk. Output has been as large as 1gb oversize. What's the point in having a bit rate automatically calculated if it is always wrong?

I have never gotten BDtoAVCHD to work fully correct. Every version there is plenty of discovery, what works and what doesn't. However, I continue to try and use BDtoAVCHD, simply because it does things none of the other programs do. I applaud the willingness to try things other programmers seem to inconsider too difficult to try. While it doesn't always work out for me, it is always successful enough to be worth the time to try things.

For example, currently I'm trying to compress the hobbit movies I just purchased in 3D. I do not have 3D TV, so this is mainly for future use. So I want really great 2D encoding, with the 3D there for when I need it. MakeMKV will happily rip me 32 GB mkv files, but my NAS solution simply can't serve the files to my media player fast enough. I need compression without losing the MVC player. Enters BDtoAVCHD. First I had problems with the virus scanner, then I find it crashing with "no free frame surfaces" error. But I bet eventually I find a set of settings that work. Which means I will have accomplished with what none of the other free programs I have tried can do.

Certainly plenty of room for improvements and new ideas to make this program better. However, for a free program I'm in no position to complain, and will happily take any improvements that come.

Amazing tool Sir,
I'm interest in the MVC encoding part(Full ISO 2D+3D), BUT...
There's no support for Multi Audio Tracks or Sub (Please, Please...)
Is there any possibility to include the original bluray menu into the final ISO.
And Finally, If You can add a feature to merge 2 Disc version 3D Movies(like The Hobbit+Titanic...) into 1 MVC Encoded Bluray ISO.

It's a great tool, just what I wanted. It detects the forced subtitles.
I use it on Ubuntu 14.04 64 bits with Wine-1.6 (64 bits) and it works well. With Wine-1.7 (v1.7.55) it works bad. It hangs often.
